So I take possession of a house on Friday, and I'm looking into cancelling my gym membership and instead focusing on acquiring a home gym setup and working out in my basement where I can grunt and yell all I want. I'm considering a very minimalistic approach to my weight set, with these things in mind: -Deadlifts -Bench Press -Pull-Ups -Squats I figure all I will need is: -squat rack, -a few bars -dumbbells -around 5,000 lbs total in weight (I'm on Animal Pak right now). -I can build my own pull up bar down there as well (ceiling is high enough) Is there anything else you guys can think of that I might need to add? I'm trying to stick to complete free-weight training, as I find that it's easier to get amped up for a battle with the iron, rather than cables and pulleys. Besides the basic bench movements, squat and deadlift combos, I've got a great corner to jam one end of a bar into and do bent over rows with plates on one end. However, anything you guys can think of for different movements would be much appreciated. I'll take pics of my place tomorrow when I get the keys, I'm pretty excited.
