Need to build a homegym,

Can you build a home gym on a second floor of a house?

What do you guys recommend for a good powerrack and rubbet mat?

Do I have to give up on deadlifting now?

    You can still deadlift. If lowering the bar to within an inch of the floor and coming back up so keep tension the whole time was good enough for Dorian Yates it's good enough for you.

    It's certainly not optimal. How new is the house, and do you have any idea about its weight capacity? If the answer is no, then figure that out first.
    Bells of Steel has pretty good pricing on stuff

    ground floor is better. my homegym is on the second floor. heavy deadlifts cause sismic events, especially when youre deeper in the set and are more tired. my gym coach had taught me not to hold onto deadlifts, and everyone in the gym gleefully dropped them every time.
    but now im stuck like this, so if ground floor is not an option, you can lessen the earthquakes with:
    -good bumper plates
    -multiple THICK mats. dont buy stuff on Amazon it sucks
    -drop pads could help too, but i think they leave the barbell too high from the floor for deadlifts, and they're expensive for only 1 exercise. if you plan on also doing oly lifts then maybe.

    you can of course not drop the barbell, but bigger weights are what they are. i already had that habit ingrained

    what happenens if I accidentally drop the bar? I have rubber matts, a platform and comp plates, etc., but I'm still scared to deadlift, because I don't want to fall down together with the colapsed floor

      Stand on a plyo box and deadlift off pins / straps

      If deadlifting off pins, wrap them in foam or rubber mat

        it's a completely valid question, especially when you don't know the structural integrity of the particular house, moron

        I don't get it, it's 'murrican, only ships to the US, etc. and I managed to buy it living in Eastern Europe but apparently no one it the anglo internet has heard about it and only buys Rogue, while Powertec blows it out of the water. for basically the same price as a barebones Rogue rack with cumbersome pin safeties, which needs to be bolted to the floor, you get a great rack for home use with a multibar, dip bars, latched on safeties and a great extension system, with an optional pulley tower, elastic band hooks, bench that be secured to the rack etc

    What type of rubber mat do I get? Brand? Any other building home gym tips?

      rubber granulate tiles if you got some cash, those dont smell like ass and are safe indoors, brand doesnt really matter.
      horse stall mats if youre poor, air them out for multiple weeks preferably in the sun and no not stacked on top of each other
