I'm starting Mark Rippetoe's Starting Strength program soon. I'll almost exclusively be doing barbell exercises, so I figured I'd save the frustration of following stupid gym rules and the annoyance of little kids curling on my squat racks.
I'm somewhat limited in space -- My basement is only about 7.5ft high. I already have a chinning bar and I'm not sure an expensive power rack is necessary. I've looked at a few squat stands, but I don't know if they're ideal for bench presses. I'd appreciate any advice about good equipment to buy and a reputable place to buy them. Thanks.
