re: I'm joining the Home Gym Master Race (rate my setup thread) - SaintTiger80 on 4/6/20 at 1:51 pm
I would have to disagree. The barbell is probably the only piece of equipment that you should place a little extra investment. You are trusting it to hold a few hundred pounds on your back or over your face. You don’t want it breaking or a sleeve coming off mid lift. I do agree though that it doe...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

Yeah that looks good! Alan Thrall has a good video on how to build one too. I did the LSU “WIN!” Bar logo on mine. Came out great. Make sure the stall mats you get are the same height as the boards you use. Some are 3/4” and some are 1/2”....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

You can definitely get away with just stall mats. I did for a while. I was just recommending one if he was worried about damaging his concrete. In my opinion, my platform gives me a more level and stable surface to pull from for deads. Plus it’s pretty easy to do yourself and looks good if you do...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

You look like you’ve done your research and will turn out to be an awesome setup/investment. For the bar, go with Stainless Steel. You’ll never have to worry about rusting. You’ll be glad you spent the extra $50-100 bucks. What’s your ceiling height? That can affect the type of rack that will ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)
re: What routine yielded your best results ever? - SaintTiger80 on 4/5/20 at 9:34 pm
I’m stronger now than I ever was but, the best routine I ever had was a simple one. The summer after my freshman year at LSU, I would come home from work and do sets of pull-ups, pushups, and toes to bar on an old metal A frame in my back yard. Then I would jump rope or go for a 2-3 mile run. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Sorinex Off The Grid rack - SaintTiger80 on 4/3/20 at 8:42 am
This Rack is awesome! Affordable, rack heights for squat and bench, plastic inserts to protect your barbell, compact for a garage gym, and designed to use your barbell as a pull up bar. I would consider this thing even if we weren’t in a shutdown....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Potential Home Gym Help - SaintTiger80 on 4/2/20 at 8:57 pm
I don’t know. For $1300 I would just wait until equipment is back in stock. Just do body weight exercises in the mean time. You can get a nice set up for that much money with high quality stuff that you will want to keep. You don’t want to buy crap that you will end up wanting to replace anyway. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Save Money / Invest / Pay off Student Loans? - SaintTiger80 on 4/2/20 at 11:35 am
Always keep an emergency fund for 3-6 months of living expenses in case you lose a job or break both legs or a worldwide pandemic. Honestly, I think the psychological benefits of not having anymore student debt would far out weigh whatever potential gains you might have in the market. I never had...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: How to determine if I should look in to refinancing home? - SaintTiger80 on 3/31/20 at 9:07 pm
The rule of thumb I’ve heard is that you want to go down at least 1% for it to be worth the closing costs. For example, my current rate is 4.875 and I’m locked in at 3.125 now. Just waiting to close. Definitely worth the cost, but I had a lot more fat to trim off than you do. I agree with the ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
