    Today I did:

    Deadlifts: 385x5

    That's it. Felt heavy but good and all reps were smooth. I think when I get up to 405 I'll stay at that weight for some time and work on increasing sets/reps prior...

    Thanks. I'm going to go with the FT1. Brand new the Bravo is more expensive than I'm wiling to pay for the increased functionality over the FT1 and I like the warranty aspect that comes with the FT1....

    As I have learned over the last couple of months it also depends how quickly you want something. I was prepared to get a power rack from Rep Fitness but ended up going Rogue due to the fact that they...

    Cool, thanks C123C. Wish I'd bought a home and built a home gym 1 year ago, lol, but timing just worked out this way as I moved in with my fiance into this home this year.

    Thanks all. The Bravo looks very nice and versatile, and if I got the compact version it would easily fit. The FT1 also looks good and is likely a lot cheaper, obviously without the adjustable arms....

    Yeah, I forgot to include that I have powerblock dumbbells in the original post. A functional trainer seems like a popular choice so I will consider this more for sure.
