Anybody have any experience with those home gyms? You know, the ones you find at Sportmart and other sporting good stores: olympic squat and bench rack with a high and low pulley (no weight stack, plate loading only).
what i’m really curious about is how do the cable exercises feel? would i get a good back workout from these home gyms? how do these cable attachments stand up over the years?
See, I just bought a new house, so i’m looking for equipment for a home gym.
unfortunately, the room i’m planning to have my gym in has a low ceiling: 7 feet. so that rules out a chinup tower, which is what i originally wanted to workout my back.
i know a lot of people recommend barbell rows for the back, but i agree with Poliquin: it’s a great exercise, but not a great back exercise.
i can do pullovers and dumbbell rows. but i really want to know if i can do various pulldowns and seated rows on these home gyms and get a great back workout.
anybody with experience with these home gyms?
