I am now to the point where gymming it is less and less practical. Coaching, teaching, and the kids’ activities have left me with less and less time to travel to a gym (the closest place to work out is 12 miles away).
I am working on setting up a place to lift in my garage and was wondering if anybody knew where I might find blueprints/plans for things like power racks and benches.
I teach at a vocational high school, so I have access to excellent fabrication facilities…[/quote]
I made my own powerrack but honestly by the time I spent $250+ on materials and about 30 hours of my time I should have just bought one for $600 (this is canadian money). Probably cheaper in the US though. Mine is heavier however not that I will ever be loading it to 1000lbs but I’m sure it would take it.
Oh…and I didn’t have the luxury of blueprints. I just got the dimensions and pictures off the internet and winged it. I did buy the bench though.
