i've these equipment. i ve a problem. i dont have a bench press machine(power rack).i dont have enough room. i can bench press with only dumbells and bodysolid machine press(it says biangular technology) . i ve heavy dumbells (2 lbs to unlimited)
do i need a power rack ? is it obligation? ..
or machine bench press and dumbell bench press will be enough.worst thing with dumbell bench press is it s not easy as a barbell bench press with spotter.
i m not a powerlifter.for example i love mark wahlberg's body. thats my target
how lucky you lot to have all that space to put gd gyms like that ive only got my bedroom with a ****ty bench an 50kilo weights
they become to light for me so i have to go to gym now costs like 22pound a month

$409 worth of equipment so far. Open Rack for 100, weight set brand new for 300 couldn't find a used one for the life of me, everybody had standard. A standard bar, and ezcurl bar were free from my old man along with about 200 lbs of standard plates. Also a 9 dollar calf raise machine I got with the open rack. The bench me and my old man frankensteined together from a couple benches.
