I finally convinced my parents…especially my dad to make a home gym. I decided to start very basic…and to first invest in a powerrack. I felt this was a good choice on my financial situation…because its so versatial…and i can use it for all the compound movements. The beginnings of my home gym will be as follows:
One Olympic Barbell
Over 400lbs worth of weights
One adjustable bench
As of now I already have cardio equipment…treadmill…heavy bag and speed bag…grappling mats soon. My idea is to use the rack for everything…and with the adjustable bench i could use it to bench, for seated shoulder press, incline bench. With the rack i could do my squats…do rack pulls…set up deads in the rack…and even do pullups. I would invest in much much more…but im 18, my dads not gonna buy everything…so im on a tight budget. If anyone could help me find a power rack that is of good quality but also on the less expensive side…it would be MUCH appreciated. Also any suggestions or additions are welcome.
