Thats the exact one I have my eye on actually, I feel like with the pull up bars and dip station this really is everything I use in a gym (once i have the barbell and plates ofcourse). Might eventually get a cable pulldown type attachment if im trreating myself.

I have three different chin up bars the one on this rack is my favourite, dip attachments are solid enough, I’m currently sitting at 94kg and have had extra weight added (I think up to 40kg but I could be wrong) no problems whatsoever.

I got the web straps for catchers, a worthwhile upgrade imo.

I bought a cheap plate loaded cable cross machine (Argos job) instead of the cable attachment allows a bit more versatility, but probably not as good on quality.

What is this? Found one video of a guy doing a one-legged squat in a power rack with an SSB when Googling.

Basically I CBA to go back to doing proper pistol squats, I don’t have the mobility without my squat shoes, so it means pistols while.i hold onto a bar for balance, so my legs rather than stability limit reps

Dorsiflexion improving as a result?

Only done it for one session as a Hatfield style, but doing pistols through summer didn’t do anything for it. I don’t have that bad d-flexion though, knee well past my toes, so I’m not sure that’s actually the limiting factor. More likely tight (weak) hamstrings, but basically I tend to fall backwards so better D-flex feels like the easiest solution, or at least the most direct.

A few of the exercises here opened up some additional dorsiflexion for me

A little more half arsed than last time, but in my defence i really did want to do the dips, my shoulder just said no. Recurring pain in my acromioclavicular joint that originally stopped me benching is now stopping me dipping or overhead pressing. Concern face.

HomeGym Workout 1

So I’ve got a new house, It has a garage, and I’ve started to buy home gym stuff. It’s all very exciting.

So far only the bar, flooring and a few cheap plates have been delivered, but things are ordered an en route.

Sumo Deadlift
190 x 5 x 3
190 x 10

Conventional Deadlift
190 x 2 x 2

Decided not to push it too hard on day 1, since I am incredibly detrained. Let’s build it up slow.

My new bar has some vicious knurling, hands gong to have to toughen up quick.

Nice! Great that you managed to find some kit in the UK, what bar did you get? What other kit you got on order?
