    Best home gym under 80 inches?

    So I just moved into my first house and I was set to buy a bowflex wheni measured and discovered my 80 in ceiling was too low for it. Can anyone recommend any other home gym machines that are under 80” and have a decent amount of weights?

    Assuming you're an able bodied adult, home gyms are basically crap. You need a power rack.....

    You can contact Rogue and have them cut down one of their power racks to 6.5' (perhaps the R-4 for example), or get an S1 model with safety spotter arms), you probably won't be able to do standing overhead presses in that room, but you can always do them seated if you get an adjustable bench with either a barbell, or dumbbells if you get them too...

    Or if you have the tools you can cut down the uprights to the desired height to fit underneath the ceiling.

    That’s what a power rack is for, single person safety. My cheap Titan rack has suffered many failed lifts, and I haven’t came close to getting injured.
