    Hello everyone!
    I've been saving for a home set up and I think it's time to begin looking at my options.

    Situation :
    I am Canadian and live in a fairly remote small town (about 4.5 hour drive to any major city). Therefore, the local used market is not necessarily a good option for quality home gym options. As such, I have mostly been looking a at new items.

    I'm sorry, but I cannot post any links yet.

    Power Rack :
    fit505-ultra-power-rack 499$CA on threadmill factory


    Barbell:
    CAP OB-86B (basically the one in the OP) 165$CA

    Weight rack:
    I'm looking at this one, but I have not shopped a whole lot. But it does not add much shipping costs to the order of the fit505.
    body-solid-wt46-olympic-weight-tree on Threadmill factory 179$CA

    I may very well have a look at the used market for a weight rack as I assume most of them should be up to the task.


    I already have flat bench, so I'm not really in the market for an adjustable one just yet.

    I still have yet to shop for weight plates... Anything I should be looking for? Obviouly I will not use hollow plates as I am too afraid they would break from deadlifting.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks for the help!

    This is designed to be a dedicated flat bench, but you could probably move one of the supports to the top and use it for other purposes. $130 is a steal if budget is your primary concern (regularly $400 according to Dick's website).

    The Ethos line, at quick glance while at Dick's looks like surprisingly decent quality. The Fitness Gear stuff is 16 gauge trash but these seem pretty nice.

    Edit: Don't need it and don't want to use the space on it but put it in my cart. Shows no local stores carry it so shipping was $240 in addition to the $130 price

    The gold's gym xrs20 is pretty good you can bench,squat,leg extension,hamstring curl, and preacher curl with it and its only $174. With the barbell and weights it would probably cost you around $450 to $500

    Absolute trash.

    This thread is about getting the highest quality setup you can for the least amount of money.

    Not throwing money away on Walmart crap.
