    Apparently, I repped you prior.


    I've been looking at dumbbells since a long ago poster first introduced me to PowerBlocks almost 12 years ago. Still haven't pulled the trigger.

    I noticed my neg was not forthcoming, can put my disaster bag back in the cupboard for now.

    I've always been more attracted to adjustable dumbbells (don't have 1000s for a full range rack) but 99% of everything available is garbage with max 20kg weight limits. Considering just splashing a couple hundred on a decent set and a bench and then just never returning to the gym

    Get some handles with enough sleeve space to load some decent weight (Rogue DB-15, etc.), the thinnest 5kg plates you can afford, and reliable collars e.g. OSO/OSO CM-1. With an adjustable bench you could get a lot done.

    That's what I got. Oly 25's, 10's, and 5's would get me well over 150 lbs./db.


    Back when I could lift that much.

    Unfortunately one of my drawbacks is i've got about 160lbs of plates but they're all 1". And 1" dumbbell bars tend to be significantly weaker

    Have got a BB which is seeing me through at the moment, but means I can't load up on a single hand. Ah well, will probably have to head back to the gym once they re-open because I haven't got space for a bench/rack

    Am fairly lucky that my lifting numbers aren't exactly huge though so can still get a decent thrashing while improvising

    I like those. Gonna look them up to see if they are in my poverty range. Right now I am using some 1" DB handles and making sketchy looking DBs when I need to. Not the safest but I rarely go over 80 pounds and when I do it is DB rows so I am not under it if it snaps
    You would be surprised just how much time I have to waste.

It was the third time they had halted the fight for them to tend to it, and I was absolutely fine other than a little blood. My trainer said two of the three judges had me up, and some in the crowd later said I was robbed, but I don’t know. The dude was tough, and I don’t wanna take anything away from him.

    If anyone is interested in a video, let me know. I haven’t uploaded anything to my dormant YouTube in a while.

    Also, I sparred this guy several times back before our gym closed:

    https://boxrec.com/en/proboxer/76670

    He’s a former son-in-law of George Foreman and came up in the Houston area under Foreman’s promotion. He was looking to make a comeback and found our gym (we’ve got a pretty good stable of older dudes that will go some rounds.) For anybody out there who has ever thought they’d go “one round with Tyson for a million dollars,” you’re an idiot. Trained heavyweights can do life-altering damage within one round, easily. This dude hit me so hard once that I thought I was responding to a question from the trainer, but no actual words were coming out of my mouth.
    Wow, Lencho practicing the sweet science. I very well remember the hell it did to my body and that was in my early twenties. Couldn't imagine doing it now in my late 40s. Out of curiosity who sanctions your bouts?

    USA Boxing. Apparently, it has grown quite a bit over the last few years. Regular tournaments each year in NYC, Vegas, Atlanta, San Jose, Arizona, Florida, etc. None in Texas, which sucks. Closest one for me to drive to is Mena, Arkansas, but it didn’t happen this year due to this focking virus.

    Finally bought a bench for my Covid lifting

    Finally used the bench

    Rickety piece of sh*t nearly killed me

    Should have spent more on bench, seriously considering buying some decent dumbbell handles now

    I settled on a couple Rogue echo and monster bands. Apparently one of the bands has resistance equal to 200 lbs. Maybe I can do some one arm benches or rows. Some form of a squat or rdl

    That’s brutal. They’re open here, but I’m at the point where I won’t be going back. Pretty sure the gym model won’t survive this. There are days when I want to go, but it’s just not worth dealing with the masks and the social distancing when I can just hit it hard in the garage.

    100%. Like I told Dom once we get done with construction I am dropping 10k for a home gym. I think that's more than enough for flooring, rack, 12 45lbs, 2 35lbs, 2 25lbs, 4 10lbs, 2 5lbs, 2 2.5lbs plates, weight rack, barbell, weight storage rack, cable and lat pull down attachments for rack, dumbell pairs and rack from 15lbs to 120lbs, GHR machine, and elliptical. Lol or at least I hope so.

    I'd also love to get a prowler/sled, leg curl attachment, and one of those farmers walk barbells. Imho farmers walks are one of the top tier exercises

    Edit: I figure a breakdown:

    $500 for flooring
    $2.5k for rack + attachments
    $2k for weight plates and dumbbells
    $500 for barbells and racks
    $2k for GHR
    $2K for cardio

    Hopefully restrictions there ease soon. We're going backwards. Australia's 2nd largest city has gone into "stage 4" lockdown for the next 6 weeks.
    • A curfew – from 8pm to 5am – starting tonight. The only reasons to leave home during these hours will be work, medical care and caregiving.
    • The Night Network will be suspended, and public transport services will be reduced during curfew hours.
    • Exercise will be limited to a maximum of one hour per day and no more than five kilometres from your home. Group size will be limited to a maximum of two – you and one other person – whether you live with them or not.
    • Shopping will be limited to one person per household per day. Again, the five-kilometre rule will apply.
    • Study at university must be done remotely.
    • Weddings will be banned – unless on compassionate reasons.
    • Face coverings will continue to be compulsory.
    • All Victorian students across all year levels will return to at-home learning.
    • Non-essential businesses will be forced to close.

    Definitely. It's probably a good idea to start accumulating this stuff gradually vs. dropping a lot of dough in one hit which can be harder to justify when emergencies come up. You can do a lot with a barbell and plates.

    This dude is making them out of concrete.

    LOL, I love DIY Duke. Someone is selling concrete templates on the net, can’t think of the name right now.

    There was a thread in the misc yesterday, member 'backinthegymbro' was making/selling concrete plates. He used different sized buckets as moulds.

    Not sure how well they'd hold up over time, especially deadlifting. I would think they'd crumble apart eventually.

    As someone who's had a home gym for many years, I highly recommend it even in non-Covid times. So much easier to just hop down to the basement and crank out some sets. No excuse that it's "too far to drive".

    The stuff I recommend most is a rack of course (with pullup bar and lat tower attachment for high and low rows), barbells and full set of weight plates, incline - decline bench, Ironmaster or similar DB's, and then your choice of something extra for legs. I picked up a Parabody leg press / hack squat / calf press as well as a seated calf press on the used market for very reasonable prices. I'm sure it's harder to buy stuff used now, but over the long term it's a good way to go. People spend big $$ on nice stuff then don't use it and just want it gone.


    Ironically, I recently moved states so most of my stuff was either sold or is now in storage.

    I've had a garage setup for years but it's not convenient. Too cold in the winter and too hot/humid in the summer.

    My son is moving out this week and we're moving the home office from the basement to his room and hopefully I can move the gym to the basement. Very exciting times.
