School (daughter and wife), Softball, T-ball (my oldest daughter), have all led to me not making it to the gym. I don't see any of those items changing in the near future, so I picked up some used equipment to setup a small area at the house to workout after everyone goes to bed (Girls are all in bed by 9:00 each night.)
As I posted in the Random thoughts post.
I picked up some used (and slightly abused) equipment the other day. Gotta repair and modify it a bit for use.
Powerhouse Club 1950 Bench and attached rack (Incline, Decline, Flat)
Misc Weights (2x45 2x25 4x10 2x10) not all matched pairs
, might be more, my memory isn't that great.
Not the best equipment, but the price was decent, even needing some repair and modifications.
Convert Bench to free standing (nearly done)
Raise the Rack ~8" so that I can also use it for Squats.
Build some Safety bars which are adjustable for Bench and Squat.
Now for the down side...
When working out in my garage, I do not have enough overhead room for standing overhead work. Other than the Core Stability work, what else is lost with a seated overhead press?
I will likely need to grab some more plates soon. Obviously will need a pair of 2.5's for Bench and overhead work, but not sure whether to get some 45's, 35's, or 25's for DL and Squat work?
Keeping in mind my previous PR's are as follows, what plates would I get the most benefit from at first.
Flat Bench ~135
My DL 1RM should get to my max weight fairly quickly, followed by my squat 1rm, or at least I hope it does..
