I'm going to be 35 and I work from home. As such and because I hate gym memberships that are a pain to get out of, I'm building my own home gym. My wife and I are in a two bedroom apartment. So, we're going with (everything from Northern Lights Fitness) an incline bench, weight stand, 200 lbs to start of Olympic Cap weights, BIG exercise ball and full power cage. we're also going to add a set of PowerBlock Dumbells. My question #1 is:
Most exercise books focus on cable machines etc. but nothing I've seen focuses exclusively on a power cage. I know some of the exercises I can do, but not all. Roughly, how many exercises can you do in a cage other than squats/lifts/presses/chinup/hanging abs?
Just found out I can't take "cow anything" (no dairy but can eat the meat) and the one Vegan protein I tried, well, let's say I won't be buying it. Has anyone any experience with the Sun Warrior brand? I've heard it is good but thought I'd check here first.
