Here is my "gym for home" I cleared out the space in my basement a couple weeks ago, this alone tooks hours because there were PILES of shit all over the place. Once that was done my buddy and I went out and bought everything then hauled it down there. It took a good 5 hours to build the bench and rack. What I have and what I paid: New York Barbells Power Rack - $279 (free shipping) Weider adjustable bench incline/decline - $59 300lb Olympic weight set + barbell - $129 10-35lb hex dumbbells - $132 (.49 per pound) Olympic EZ-Curl bar + oly DB handles - $29 interlocking foam mats - $17 Total cost: $645 I know the bench is really crappy... but im just starting out and I dont need huge support right away. I plan on getting a better one when there is a need. So what do you guys think?
