Finally leaving NYC and will get to build a home gym! I’m very excited. The house is spacious and beautiful, the basement itself is big, but…the ceiling is 7.5 feet tall. Unfortunately, the ceiling height makes it impossible for me to really get a full rack given the height of these I’ve seen thus far.

Other equipment I’m looking to add will of course be a couple good bars with bumper plates, deadlift platform 45 degree raise, reverse hyper, and a ton of dumbbells.
All suggestions are welcome.
