    I don't think I've posted pictures of my gym here yet, so here they are.

    Since I suck at taking pictures, heres what I have:
    Dumbbell rack up to 80lb dumbbells
    Smith Machine
    Chest Press up to I think 245?
    Adjustable bench for dumbbell work outs
    Cable machine up to 180lbs
    Tower for dips, pull ups, leg lifts

    I ordered a weight tree rack for my curl bar weights, it just hasn't arrived yet. So for now the weights are pilled up on the side of the house.


    I've been cleaning out the other side of the garage and I have room for more equipment. My question is, what equipment should I get next? I know I am missing tons of stuff, and I already have all this, so I am not getting a gym membership anytime soon.

    I have an Olympic size barbell chillen on the side of my house, just no stand to use it on... I guess that should be my next investment

    I wouldn't bother with the Chest Press Machine, but that's just me.

    .

    You can replace all of that (minus DBs) with a single power rack and adjustable bench. You can bench in it, do anything you can do on a smith, do pullups. Get some hanging arm straps so you can do the lower ab exercises.

    Dumbells are good though.

    Needs motivational posters. The only thing that would drive me crazy about working out at home is not having people around.
