Picked up some rubber flooring on craigslist. might go another row. its a little smaller than i expected, but should be fine. Power rack is going in front of the window and i wanted that on the concrete for squats/deads/cleans. i can always bring the barbell over on the rubber if dropping heavy weight overhead. Picking up 2 bells, sled, TRX and rings today.

Got the York barbell on CL for $100. I was stoked on that deal. Its older but still spins like a top.

Get your butt back to the Y Jason!!! You'll be doing two or three sets at home then start playing with your fishing stuff. Been there done that. Nice to have some stuff at home but here's to those home workouts. New weight room at the Y will be up and running next week. New floor , remolding and some new equipment.

Update

Pretty much done. Added a set of bumpers from Rogue, more barbells, KB's up to 70lbs. Also a spud ink pulley which is pretty bad ass. Built that bumper plate holder and the pull blocks. Got the big white board for 12 bucks also. $40 total at home depot. also adding a rogue pull up bar from the ceiling for kips and ring work. Its pretty sweet grinding in the garage.

Badass. I workout at the Y, too. I like the quiet atmosphere and all the hot single divorcees...

Did you move to JTN?

I built a OLY platform. Got the itch to put one in. Been a awesome addition. # piece of plywood, and got the stall mats at the tractor supply store. Bolted the rack to it. Added a Rogue pull up bar to the ceiling too. Weve been doing group workouts in the diveway and street. Its been pretty fun effing around in the garage and driveway.
