All new except the Pendlay I bought 5 years ago. Having the best workouts at home just getting in this crazy zone.
I don't think I'll go back to the commercial gym after lockdown. 360lb in plates and looking for more but it's plenty for bodybuilding.
Only thing I feel like I'm missing is a leg extension machine haha I've been doing seated cable leg extensions but it's not the same.
Sissy squats and close stance with elevated heel to hit quads as well.

about $1300 total cost. Overall I'm very happy with this as my home bodybuilding setup.
Next purchase will be a legit power cage.

Basic squat rack, j-hooks, arms, pullup bar. $250 Sunny fitness
Pendlay Olympic barbell (2013) $500
Plate loaded dumbells (14" length, 2" ends) $35 Dick's
EZ Curl bar $45 Big 5 Sporting Goods
Flat bench $80 Dick's

Damn, I forget sometimes gyms are still closed in parts of the country. I'm thankful to be living in a big fat red state.

I was locked out of the gyms for about 3 months but was able to keep on at the house.

Looks like Christmas came early :)

What, no chalk holder? Pffft, rookie....

Nice scores, still hard to find a lot of stuff, especially plates.

I was at a Dick's in Minneapolis and they had lots of 10lb and like 3x 25lb plates.... and the rest was empty. I'm guessing CTJ's store looks like that now too after his awesome haul.

You can set an alert in the Dick's app for when something comes in stock. I grabbed 300lbs of weigh with a bar for $250.

@The other Snake @midevil We're renting a small place while our house is being built so stuff is put away living room and on the deck. It's not setup like a badass home gym.
I literally have a weight tree with plates on it next to the TV haha


I bought a dip horn but it wouldn't fit in the rack without drilling new holes. I might try to build one with plumbing pipe idk. Ordered rings in the meantime to do weighted dips on.

Why is it always said that the home gym is too expensive? I make my own too, after quarantining me for a whole year I realized I'd better do it this way. Now my former office is the gym. Thanks for your list.
