I'm anxious to get some feedback on the layout from everyone...there is a rope (unfortunately only 10' clear) and a speed bag that are not in the pictures. what else am i missing?

wow that is a huge area! that is fantastic :bow:

The ManCave - a 10'x20' space in my basement. This took about 8 years to put together.

Sam,
How do you like your squat stands? I was thinking of purchasing a pair like that. Do they have a lot of height settings or just a few?
Thanks
Bob

I like it very much. Its sturdy and stable. I think I bought it from Garage Gym. Very reasonable.

There might be a half-dozen(?) adjustment points. Maybe a few more.

Jeremy, love your home gym. I have a Powertec rack and built my platform inside and out along the front of the rack only. That's clever what you did to your Powertec rack; removing the rear floor cross brace to allow passage of your platform through the front and rear of the rack.

Has removing that rear brace done anything to weaken the rigidity of your rack structure?

Addendum: I'm also interested in your horizontal bar holder. Did you build it yourself or was this something that is commercially available?

I drilled holes through the ends of the base and bolted the rack to the floor with 3/4" anchor bolts...it's rock solid, I can't even shake it. For a fairly inexpensive rack I am really impressed with it. I got a second set of j hooks for the back side and the plate holders from new York barbell and they fit perfectly.

The bar holder is Rogue's "gun rack". I was working on plans to build something, but I saw it on their web site and it was exactly what I had in mind. It's all steel and looks like it will last forever.

I have the same rack. I hadn't thought of removing the back bar and bolting to the floor. I think I'll do this when I fix up my garage.

Makes it much more functional if you have two people working at same time or two different bars set up for different exercises at the same time when you can use both sides of the rack:)

Jeremy, thanks for that tip about Rogue's "Gun Rack." I've been looking for a horizontal bar holder and my search has ended. Someone else was asking about bar holders on another thread. I'll let him know about it too.
