Looks awesome, and I believe the reps fitness bench will be great. He took a ton of user feedback when designing it

The powerblocks up to 90 are fine but honestly you have the right idea above that as it just too bulky and hard to handle.

Finally got the home gym finished.
Rogue monster lite flat foot with pull-up attachment, matador dip bar.
Rogue chan bar
Rogue bolt bench
CAP weights
Tractor supply rubber mats
Few other accessories
I absolutely love it. Just finished my first workout in it. Couldn’t go too crazy because I’m nursing a back injury, but did weighted pull-ups, bench press, bent over rows with t bar, dips, and ab leg raises. Good a good workout. I love working out at home being able to blare Megadeth. Thanks for the advice boys!!

That's freaking sweet! Only thing I would caution is getting too many of those cap weights. They aren't the same size as the regular iron. Mine are about 1/2" shorter. Not a big deal if not too many but it can effect deadlift.

I think I’m gonna purchase some bumper plates for power cleans and deadlifts.
Thanks though! I love it. So the cap weights are smaller than normal weights?

Yep. Those 45s are Measures 17"H x 17"W x 1.5"D. Normal should be 17.72"

Like I said though, it's not a big deal if it's just a set and the only problem is really the 45s.

re: Home Gym Thread: Ideas and Setups
You mean just started the home gym. You will be forever expanding.

It's looks awesome though.

Great info here.

I’m about to clear some space in the garage for a power rack. I’ve had enough of getting to the gym and there’s a dude curling in the squat rack. I want my own shite.

Havent posted since I got the bench a few months back, but I love the hell out of it. Can't beat it for the money.

re: Home Gym Thread: Ideas and Setups
Hey, I've lurked here before, registered to talk Sean Miller on the MSB.

Home gym was the best workout decision I ever made. I've been building iver the years with an emphasis on powerlifting and strongman. Here's what I've got. I posted here due to my love for the home setup.

General strength:

Squat stand.
Rogue Ohio Power bar. Alternate bar, safety squat bar.
6 inch blocks.
Kettlebells up to 197 LB.
GHD.
Reverse hyper.

Cardio:

Airdyne bike.
Rogue sled.

Strongman:

Yoke.
Farmers walk implements.
Sandbags 200-250-300.

Judge me harshly. I'm an addict.

re: Home Gym Thread: Ideas and Setups
no judgement here brother I am the same way.

How do you like your reverse hyper? who is it by?

What yoke do you have.

Working on my sandbag collection. Doing the rouge strongman sand balls. I really like the one I have.

re: Home Gym Thread: Ideas and Setups
Reverse hyper is from Rogue. I got it because I had a bad lumbar injury without form breakdown. I wanted the decompression aspect as much as the glute activation.

Zero back injuries since I got it (knock on wood). Rogue's stuff is always solid, so it's made to last. I do a lot of spinal loading with PL/strongman, so as long as I'm back injury free, it's 100% worth it for me.

All the other heavy stuff (squat stand, yoke, etc.) I had custom built by Garage Metalworks here in Tucson. Owner is awesome and I save a couple hundred plus no shipping.

I have the Rogue sandbags too. If you're weak anywhere, the sandbag will expose it right away.

If you don't mind sharing back, how do you program the sandbag work?

Post a pic if you don’t mind.

What type of Rogue sled do you have?

re: Home Gym Thread: Ideas and Setups
I'll take a pic when home and try to figure out how to upload. I'm still figuring this out.

Sled is the Rogue Fat Boy S-25. My family knows me well enough I get a lot of Rogue gift cards.

The only drawback is it's only up to 500, but I use it in conditioning circuits. By the time you're doing it in a circuit with farmers walks, sandbag carries and battle ropes (I forgot I have battle ropes too) 400 feels like plenty.

It's a great, sturdy sled. You can max the post with weight and it handles it like a champ.

re: Home Gym Thread: Ideas and Setups
I just got mine, but plan on just doing carries as a form of heavy conditioning.
