Due to recent developments, which I can’t go into detail about, I’m going to be soon canceling my gym membership. So I’m in the process of getting enough equipment to get by with for the forseeable future.
Budget is a major factor, and I’ve decided to go ahead and pick up a 300 Lb. weight set tomorrow, Sports Authority has them on sale for $99. I’ll pick up some more 45 plates next month too. I’ve also found an inexpensive(cheap I know) Power Rack for $178 bucks at Academy, that even has a pulley attatchment. I checked it out, it won’t last more than a few years of use, but for that money it’s worth it to me; plus I was looking at the way it was put together and I think I can buy some stronger hardware to lock it all together nice and solid.
I will also get a plain flat bench as well within a month or two. I already own a uskettlebell that I also use, as well as a set of adjustable spindle dumbells that will go up to 80 lbs a piece.
I’m really looking forward to lifting at home and having everything I really need. Suggestions on anything else for the budget-savvy home gym?
