have to present to my university finance board tomorrow regarding the rebuilding of our weightroom. Basically their plan was to buy a ton of hammer strength equipment (ex. - iso-lateral bicep curl machine). I am trying to convince them to ditch 75% of the machines, and would appreciate any easy to understand articles and research that I can present to the board (who know next to nothing about lifting).
We have a fairly decent budget (DIII by the way)- and my equipment proposal so far is -
3 Hammer Strength Power Racks with Platforms - anyone have experience with platforms attached to power racks? ok or not?
3 Werksan 187kg bumper training sets w/bars
1,500lb - troy easy grip plates
6 Texas Power Bars
1 Fat Bar
8 heavy duty Hammer Strength Adjustable Benches
4 Hammer Strength Bench Press stations - incline, decline, 2 flat
1 eliteftsCollege GHR
1 elitefts Reverse Hyper Ultra
1 elitefts set chains
1 elitefts Box squat box
Perform Better Plyo Boxes
elitefts Blast Straps
1 Hammer Strength Bodyweight Back Extension
Full Set Dumbells to 150 - hammer strength?
2 dip/chin stations - hammer?
2 Cable Pulley Stations - hammer strength?
1 Seated Cable Row - hammer?
1 Lat Pulldown - hammer?
Leg Press - hammer?
That’s all I have right now. Again, looking for advice on
- people’s experience with items listed
- any other items needed
3.how I can convince my school not get pec decks, leg extensions, leg curls, iso lateral triceps and bicep curl machines, weighted ab machines, etc… and spend the money instead on the above
Thanks for your help.
