    Need some help/opinions in choosing home exercise equipment. My gym will no longer be open 24 hrs a day. icon_mad.gif
    I used to be there by 4:30-4:45AM and leave about 5:30 - 6AM before the others would get there. (Now the only place that is open at that time is a YMcA. A place I would never step foot in with what the letters YMcA stand for. Bleh….bloody repulsive.)

    I prefer something that is an almost all in one machine that you can truly do basic Bodybuilding exercises, and that can handle real weight. Any suggestions?
    Thank you!
    Cheers,
    Keith

    NB- Not to sound too rude here….but if you’re a twig or some bloody fat arse, please don’t waste either of our time. icon_rolleyes.gif You would have no suggestions of any relevance.

    LOL.. So harsh.

    If you have a good amount of space dedicated for your workout room, I would suggest a power rack, an adjustable (incline, decline, flat) bench, Olympic barbell and plates, and maybe a set of dumbbells.

    There are some power racks that have attachment units for pulley exercises, like lat pulldowns or rows. Kinda like this..

    LOL! Harsh? Really? I didn't think so. Oh well. icon_confused.gif
    I was thinking on the same lines. Just was wondering about who has the best quality and most adaptabilities.

    Thanks for responding icon_wink.gif.

    Hi I would say get a good chin-up/pull up bar for a doorway. Like the Iron gym one I have. Some ab straps for leg lifts to attach to the bar. Also, don't get a fixed bar because you can move it toward the floor for push ups chest pulls and to hold your ankles for sit ups.

    You can probably get one on e-bay cheaper.

    It's all you need.

    I'm not considered a twig or fat arse- hahaha

    Good Luck-

    Don't be surprised when you find that insulting even a few people ends up turning off the entire crowd. You see, there's something out there called empathy.

    Couldn't agree more. Have had the 9 series for a couple of years. Both my partner and like them very much for when we can't get to the gym.
    Thanks!
    Cheers,
