If that were closer I'd strongly consider it. But to think of a regular run of the mill local gym, no way.
    You are my friend Richard as a bodybuilder. Master of his craft, one of the very best at it, very tolerant irish mechanic, intolerant of people, always has the end all one liner.

    He is a formidable and undefeated "gay chicken" champion as well.

    Anyone have ideas for some simple home made equipment? Would have loved to make my own power rack but needed something quickly.

    The resistance bands are working out better than I thought. Granted itís higher rep workouts, but with multiple bands I can get myself failing at 10 reps.

    Also with the multiple bands, can do multiple drop sets by eliminating bands. Lots of room outdoors, so have multiple points of attachments & multiple stations for supersets.

    Bought some machine attachments: a rope for triceps, handle for close grip rows & a curl bar.

    One that needs a lot of cleaning after winter, and some trees taken down lol. It's not that big and probably going to be pretty wet for the next month or so.

    Here's what I've got so far still gotta put some rubber mats down, and waiting on my plates. Still want to pick up a cheap ez bar, and I might make my own weight tree. Also considering one of those arm blasters anyone have any opinions on them?

    Arm blasters aren't that great vs. maintaining strict form. If you find one at a good price, go for it, but I wouldn't lose any sleep if I didn't have one.
    There are 3 loves in my life: my wife, my English mastiffs, and my weightlifting....Man, my wife gets really pissed when I get the 3 confused...
