I would like to build a home gym.
Gyms around here either have: no power rack, one power rack which is used often (and the pins are old and one hangs out an inch farther than the other), or multiple power racks but have absurd gym rules such as “no chalk, no liquid or food on the rubber floor”.
I have found the necessary equipment for a good home gym, here are the links and prices (shipping is included):
http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_00615738000P?keyword=weider $209.99. If it is good enough I plan on not having to get bumper plates, you know, since this are rubber encased. I also looked at this set: http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_00615739000P?keyword=weider
but those rings don’t look like they would be sufficient for heavy deadlifts or being dropped from a power clean.
New Power Rack (looks like PowerLine to me): http://cgi.ebay.com/DELUXE-POWER-CAGE-RACK-Home-Gym-Fitness-Equipment-NEW_W0QQitemZ250236488142QQihZ015QQcategoryZ62135QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp1742.m153.l1262
Flat Bench (incline isn’t a complete necessary assistance exercise anyway right? :D) http://www.newyorkbarbells.com/5900.html
What do you think, is this equipment good/good enough quality? Only thing I think I need otherwise is some plywood covered with rubber flooring. I don’t know how I will end up doing back extensions without a roman chair though .
