    pick up the cheapest weights you can find, but get a bar with good knurling... I hate shitty bars


    unless you're doing olympic lifts, then you'd want bumper plates

    You can beat a gym. ~$30/month gets you access to thousands of dollars worth of pro equipment and your home doesnt smell like a gym. Also, when you fail at your "get tone for summer :hsugh:" phase, you wont have to worry about selling/tossing away/storing all that crappy home gym stuff.

    in my basement i have the following:
    bench press/incline press with hamstring curl machine on end.
    incline leg press sled
    dumbell rack from 5 to 50 lbs with a flat bench
    3 station machine with lat pull downs/preacher curls; flys/leg extensions/cable rows; chest press
    a dip + leg raises piece of equipment
    seated calf raises machine
    a curl bar
    and a triangle rack for all the weights.

    i still go to the gym, it's alot better.

    p.s. oh, i also have some machine where you stick your toes in it and lift up your foot, i guess it works your shin muscles whatever those are called. i think my mom bought it cause she's a runner and i guess it could help with shin splints.

    If you need to purchase something for home, pick up some dumbbells. Much more worthwhile than a cheap do-it-all.

    Then hit up your local gym.

    You can get the weights and bar at walmart (I saw $24 for bars, $30 for a weight stand, and $20 for 45's) but i'd get a better quality bench elsewhere.

    you can get away with a good power rack, bar, weights, adjustable bench, maybe a couple mats
