Kinda dread asking this, but, in reality I've got a reason I can't justify getting into a gym, so what equipment would you all recommend my getting for home workouts? Please give me names/amounts and any recommendations on where. I don't want to say what I've been using to date here, but I'm quickly realizing I need to 'upgrade' my path to getting this job done. So, any help on this line would be very much appreciated in my effrots to get started on home workouts.
Thanks in advance.

I have a Powertec rack with high/low pulley that I really like. Bodysolid bench and some plate loaded dumbbells.

Craigslist occasionally has good deals on home gym stuff.

Honestly, if you have a good power rack with a solid bench set up and a good barbell, then the only other thing you would need are dumbbell bars maybe.

Also, make sure the hooks that you are using for the bench are not too tall.

You can also build shit yourself. If you're handy or have the tools.

Get a pullup tower/bar with dip station along with a rack and focus on the olympic lifts. That's pretty much it

I will never go to a gym again. Dont need it. Buy cheap stuff and build up as needed. Then sell and upgrade when you can. There are even plans that can be had on the internet to build stuff out of wood. I scored an Icarian adjustable bench from a gym off craigs list for a steal, found some IGX dumbells at an out of business gym, plates, bars. Picked up a weider power rack with cable pull at the goodwill of all places.
