      700 for that wtf

      use marketplace and get literally cheap ass weights in your city man

      700 was the discounted price, the guy in store threw in a 150 dollar discount. It would have been 850 otherwise

        The weights and bars are 350
        Bench: 60
        Parallel bars: 50
        Dumbell sets 14kg and 25 lbs: 40

        Add in the floor mat and its still less than 600.

        You got garden gnome

              Okay but you can do it all with dumbbells. Barbells are optional.

              bruh my friend got a power rack, bench, reasonably good barbell, as much weights as they'll ever actually need, and even an elliptical for 850 in northern fun bux.

      some kind of bench is very important. you get diminishing returns on an adjustable one. There are some exercises that need one, but you can often get away with standing versions of them or just not doing them.

      I used to go without a bench. I got a bench about a year or so ago. Honestly…get the bench. It’s worth it and enables so many great exercises even with dumbbells. Adjustable is more than worth it because working at an incline is important.

    I have a squat rack, bench, barbell and some weights/cables. But I felt like I was missing something in my workouts. I had some dumbbells but I decided I wanted more. I bought picrel for like $350 and started using them this week. Best purchase I've made in a long time. Base product starts at 5-10 lbs (handle has 2 removable 2.5lbs weights in it) and goes up in 10 lbs increments until 50lbs. You can buy expansion packs and get the dumbbells up to 90lbs. Then there are 3rd party sellers that can get you over 120 lbs per dumbbell.

    You payed $700 for a bench, 8 dumbbells, jump rope, and what looks like a grip trainer.
    You could've bought the powerblock adjustable dumbbells for $350 a bench for around $80 and your set up would be better than the one you have now and that's just $430 spent. You could also buy some cables off of amazon for $20 and a tricep rope for $13. That's $463 so far and blows your home gym out the water. Add some barbell and weights you can find off facebook marketplace or craigslist and you could have a much better gym for around the same price.

    Bros, pls take my advice if you are building your home gym. You don't need to waste your money like OP.

          Honestly my hand fits inside pretty easily. I was initially worried about that, but thankfully I don't have crazy big hands. The outside handles/beams can also be used to hold the dumbbell. I used the outside ones when I did dumbbell pullovers yesterday.

    Posting my frankenbar again because someone wanted to know how much weight it was last thread. 105lbs DBs, 35lb KB, bar is maybe 3lb. Red band is 15-35, black 25-65, camos are 33lb. Added up it should be about 143-290-475lbs from bottom of the lift to the top, but it's probably less. At lockout it feels very heavy and I can't do all 4 bands yet.

            Anonymous

            Rack is important, both from a safety perspective and because it'll be good for all sorts of leg and pressing movements. You can go quite far with only a barbell, bench, rack, and deadlift platform.

            • 4 months ago
              Anonymous

              The barbell is enough for deadlifts, but to do squats you need a squat rack, and for bench press you are going to need a bench, and if you are lifting alone I think you can use the squat rack with safety guards to catch the bar on a failed bench press rep.

              If you have chairs you can do a jury rigged setup for a floor press, but there is much less range of motion so it is not ideal for gains. You can also use chairs to hold the bar high enough for a zercher squat but that depends on how much you trust chairs to hold up all the weight on the bar before you squat it. Great thing about zercher squats is that if you fail you just lean forward and dump the bar

              thanks familia I'll start looking for a decent barbell rack set

      Gains made through poverty are the best kind of gains. It's easy to make gains when you've got a gym full of brand new equipment. The guy lifting on a dirt floor in his wood shack with a barbell held up by scraps wants it more. The real grind, not the Insta grind. You're gonna make it, anon.

          I picked up an “Impex Steelbody” bar from a Play it Again Sports for about $100. It’s nothing special, probably intended for the commercial gym market, but the bearings are smooth, good knurling, etc. I agree that a bar is the wrong place to go super cheap, but it never hurts to look for a deal on a good solid used bar.

    Had most of this before the insane holocough prices, almost everything is used except for the cage, plate tree, resistance bands, and the trap bar. I’ve probably spend around $1500 for my setup. You could easily trim down some of the accessory equipment and go bare bones to save even more money. Bare minimum I would say you need some kind of squat rack/cage, flat bench, resistance bands, rings, and a doorframe pull-up bar if your cage doesn’t have one.

        Yeah, thankfully. Resting on the safeties the bar just barely sits on my chest. I never even considered that when I bought it, I reckon you could always get a bench that sits at a different height to make the safeties work, or just not use them. The distinct possibility of being crushed to death would be a powerful motivator for setting PRs

I’m in the process of taking the barbell apart and I’m going to soak the plates in water and vinegar and go to town with a wire wheel. Keep in mind a single 45 plate of the exact weights I got new would come out to about $60.

        Its about balance. For eg, loading a bar to bench with inacurate plates can build imbalances. Say you have 2 plates that weigh 46 on the left and 2 plates that weigh 43 on the right. That bar is all fucked. Yes, you should fix them or arrange them in a way that is balanced on the bar.

    Guys are concrete weights worth it, are they dangerous? I see lots of places online saying they're awful compared to iron, they can fall apart in the middle of lifts causing you massive imbalance and injury, splinters can get into your eyes or the sharp sides can badly injure you, but is this all just Big Iron trying to scare people away from them? Can concrete weights actually work well?

      Rack, barbell, bench, used plates and a set of collars is the minimum. Titan Fitness is pretty cheap for okay equipment but there can be production issues, rep fitness is better quality but is a bit more expensive. Don't cheap out on the barbell, rogue Ohio power bar is a great one for not a hell of a lot of money when you consider the quality of it. I'd say get the FB-5000 bench from Rep Fitness and a rack with Westside hole spacing because it's super nice. Collars you can cheap out on usually too, just don't get the spring loaded ones.

      get some dip bars and a pullup bar, you can do so much with just those too. Then once your bodyweight starts getting easy, you can add weighted exercises.

      I never lifted weights until february or so, did a bit of that, but couldnt stick to it, so i tried calisthenics, and loved it. I wasnt even able to do 1 pullup and now im at 10, also started doing weighted chinups and dips, etc. I personally like doing compound exercises because their funner for me.
