Man that leg press looks like its on the verge of collapsing. Doesn't look like the platform is very wide but maybe its just the picture. :tard:

yeah she's getting bit nasty lol. i live about 600 meters from the beach so that doesnt help either.

platform is pretty wide imo. but there are wider ones you can get.

for the price i picked it up with 200kg weights with it. i couldnt go wrong. :)

Prada 11-07-2010 01:14 AM

As long as it's sturdy, that's nothing that some rough sandpaper, a coat of rust primer and a coat of oil paint can't fix. Heck, if you get creative, sanding it down can be a cardio workout in itself LOL.

greeniz515 11-07-2010 09:57 PM

wow, that home gym is impressive!!!!

so who else has got a home gym???????????????????????????????

Johan 11-08-2010 05:05 AM

Damn T you got a damn nice home gym. All you miss is a solid platform, a olympic bar and a bunch of bumper plates!

Johan 11-08-2010 05:06 AM

I wish I had a home gym, all I really need is some kind of platform, a cheap power rack with a chin up and dip bars attached to it, a quality eleiko bar and a bunch of bumper plates.

its worth the time to invest into it. by the time you head to a gym. and get ready to workout. and come home.

thats 45 mins roughly there.

and BAM training over in your backyard. :) thats a good feeling

Johan 11-08-2010 06:09 AM

Yeah, I am lucky that I train at work. So I can skip the useless travel time on week days. But having a gym at home would be very nice, since I live in a flat its impossible though. Some day when we live in a house I will have my basement gym! :arg:

greeniz515 11-11-2010 06:45 PM

i like the idea of a home gym but i have a feeling there would be days where i wouldn't use it. sometimes getting out of the house is helpful to get me motivated

Agreed

Prada 11-13-2010 01:42 PM

I agree, I like a big spacious, modern equipment, variety and facilities a gym provides. Actually Im kind of piky when it come to choosing gyms. I beleive there are around 10 gyms in a radious of 10-15 KMS and I would only consider 2-3, I wouldnt even visit the others because they dont meet Prada's standards. :moped:

mairj23 06-02-2015 02:34 PM

That's an impressive home gym right there. I have a bench, squat rack, free weights, and leg press machine; also dip bars. I can pretty much hit every body part.

rajesh 03-30-2016 07:04 AM

Last month, I bought the 'Home-Gym-Kit' from the Internet. The kit consists of some gym equipment such as dumbbells, exercise bikes, weights, treadmills, etc. It cost of the set was more than my budget but still, I bought it as I can now workout anytime I want. :yahoo:
