New Equipment

Well, I started working out…and although I’m ashamed to admit it, it was on a bowflex.

Although there is nothing wrong with the bowflex when your starting out, I realize that it’s not the most effective way to train. So here’s my dilemma. The closest gym is a Golds Gym about 40 minutes away. It’s tough for me to get out there as much as I’d like to, so I’m in the market for some new equipment. I’ll be getting this new equipment in August, and going to the gym until then. So far I’ve only bought a dumbell set.

I’m looking for a Squat Rack. (Preferably with a pullup bar as well.)

A bench
A high quality bar
and an EZ Curl bar

Also if you have any other equipment suggestions that would be awesome.

I’m looking for good places to buy this. Squat Racks are already 300-600 dollars. I don’t want to spend 600 bucks, on a piece of shit, made in Indonesia thats going to kill me. Know what I’m sayin’?

Thanks in advance.
