id go for the half, fuck paying an extra $300+ for a pull up bar.
with that money you could buy an adjustable cable stack you could do rows, pulldowns, pressdowns, cable curls, etc with.
ok so itd be more than $300 for a pulldown/row setup but IMO youre gonna need to drop at least 5k on equipment if you want a decent home gym.
but i really wanna stress i think a commercial gym is much more worth it than a home gym.
are there really NO gyms where you live? i find that hard to believe unless you either work odd hours or live in East Bumfuck and have to drive 45 minutes to and fro Ma and Pa’s Lift-O-Rama[/quote]
Well actually this half-rack also has the pull-up station so there’s no compromise there.
Space is a consideration and the half-rack obviously takes up less space…but what I am trying to determine is do I lose any functionality by going with the half rack.
As far as a commercial gym in my area, there are only two that are close enough to be feasible and they both f**king suck. Believe me if I had convenient access to some of the gyms that I see T-Nation members going to in the little clips they post up, that is definitely what I would be doing.
