    Makeshift at home gym equipment

    Well gym equipment as we know is extremely expensive lol so after investing about 1k I still donít have nearly what Iíd like to have.
    Letís here some ideas here. So far Iím going to get 2 five gallon buckets and fill them with water to use. Iím trying to figure out a way to make a bench to be able to lay on and do bench press. I was thinking getting some lumber from Loweís maybe and just laying it on the ground to give myself enough room to be able to break 90 while doing bench press. Letís here what ideas you may have that can be useful at this time that wonít break the bank like actual gym equipment.

    i was midway through my workout and feeling the best i have ever felt!! I started noticing that it is an addiction to me. The biggest problem for me is that i have a very stressful job and the gym was the only thing that kept me from going insane. What am i suppose to do now??

    Always been a home gym addict (with a commercial membership as an add-on). The more retards show up in gyms these days, the more I hate them (commercial gyms).
    (Always loved barbells / dumbbells over machines, though I do like a few). (Dinosaur).

    Missing no workouts, these days...

    Nice garage gym bro! I have a VERY similar setup in my basement. I hate going to commercial gyms now too. Arm curls in the squat rack all day long!!!!

    Took me a couple years to complete it all. I just lurked around Craigslist and bought everything used for dirt cheap. If you look long enough, you can really find some nice equipment.
