Hey guys, I’ve finally moved to the suburbs and have begun building my home gym. So far I have a couple benches, bands, and DBs up to 130 (from my apartment), iron mind Vulcan squat rack and safety bars, two barbells, collars, about 700 lbs in bumper plates, etc.
My basement here is extremely nice and finished with tile flooring. In my apartment I had used a ton of yoga mats and those foam crappy pads for the floor. I really don’t want to risk damaging my floor dropping things DB benching and certainly deadlifting.
Has anyone had professional gym flooring put down in their home gym? I was considering paying a flooring company to just put 5" thick rubber flooring over my entire gym area. The only other thing I can think of is to simply buy more of the foam pads and just stack them out the ass, but I’m open to ideas if anyone has dealt with this before. Thanks in advance guys!
