I've been a long time lurker here, and over the past year and a half I have accumulated some equipment for my garage gym. I've had lots of time to read and research since I have been, and currently am, unable to do any lifting due to a super strong infection (it's almost gone though!).
As of now I have:
- Power Rack
- Squat Rack
- 5-115lb dumbbell set
- Regular rubber encased Olympic weights and bumper plates
- and various barbells.
I just want to know what other pieces of equipment I should add? My workouts before at the local gym were geared towards bodybuilding, but once I get better I think I'd rather lean towards powerlifting, but still be able to do a bit of bodybuilding mixed in. And now this is where the problem lies. I do realize I can do pretty much everything with what I have, but there are other machines that come heavily recommended on this forum, and I'm not one to hold back on buying anything.
The machines I am currently contemplating on are:
Lat Pulldown/Low Pull
Seated Calf Machine - the only reason for this is because my calves never grow and I thought this might help
I'm hoping I can get some input into this, or even other pieces of equipment you recommend that I haven't listed. Thank you!
