i also train in my basement gym with dumbbells and barbells. i only have an adjustable bench and a weighted vest as an extra.

i think its not about what you have, its about what you do with what you have.

if you train with enough intensity, basic equipment will work just fine.

but if you can afford a bench and a rack, there is not much more you will need.


I just had to sign in to say that this looks very poorly constructed!
