    Home Gyms

    Yep, gotta agree with Diesel on the dumbbells. For the rest, look for a deal, but don’t get suckered into buying cheap equipment. Even new. Spend the extra bread on quality equipment. Even see what it might cost you to have some of it made. I mean you can pretty much make a lot of it, or have a reputable welding shop make it instead of buying it. (Squat rack, B/P, Dumbbell stands), that way it will leave you some money left over for some better stuff that you can’t design. Also a nice sound system in the room won’t hurt for motivation as well. It will help towards the gym atmosphere without the idiots that accompany it.

    Either a rack or smith machine. Or both
    I'm making my stuff right now. But I own a metal fab shop so I kinda have an edge. If I wasnt so busy all the time doing actual work I would have been done a lone time ago. Wish I didnt have to make money or I'd have one hell of a gym already.

    Go simple at first (a good dumbell rack, a good bench, olympic bar, ez curl bar)...After that, if you still have lots left over its all gravy...Maybe a squat rack, or a big Universal gym

    To start I've got fixed dumbell's from 20lbs up to 120lbs,in 5lb increments.
    12 45lb plates,4 35lb plates,4 25lb plates,8 10lb plates,4 5lb plates,2 2.5lb plates. 2 olympic bars, easy curl bar, hammer curl bar,stair master,recumbant bike
    Power Rack,smith machine,standind calf machine, seated calf machine,leg extension machine, t-bar row,Olympic flat bech/incline bench, flat dumbell bench, decline dumbell bench,chinning bar,lat pull down with low row.I used to have a preacher curl bench but i got rid of it a while ago, and I had a vertical leg press but space was getting tight so something had to go!

    I hope I didn't leave any thing out!

    Power cage with O-bar, bench, and about 300-500 lbs depending on room and budget. You can do quite a bit with that.
