Well, so much for the super ghetto workout. Over the past couple on months I've dumped over a grand into my basement gym. Got a power rack, flat bench, standing calf press, two 300lb weight sets, plate tree, 5/8" chains, light (purple) bands, new cables for an old high/low pulley set up I had, and a few different attachment bars for it. And saturday I bought a seated chest supported row unit. Most of the big stuff came from Newyork barbells, which is my new best friend! You just can't beat them for bang for the buck! So I AM DONE spending! Luckily I had an incline bench kicking around, and adjustable spin lock dumbells a mess of standard plates buried in the basement. I love lifting at home. It saves me gas money and driving time too. Its a pretty good basement set up, and I can use all the chalk I want, and my bands and chains without getting hassled. No to mention blast whatever music I want. So now you know what I've been up to!
