  • What's Up Doggpounders!!!! Been Awhile & Need Help Putting Together My "Warrior Gym"

    WHAT UP!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Dante & Skip- (Skip I know what you are up to cause I stalk you on facebook ) So this more so directed to Dante- I hope you and your family are doing awesome! It has been too long since we talked and I hope all is good in your hood. I see that you still have your sleaveless lab coat on creating DC monsters all across the Country and that makes me really happy to see!!! BTW, does anybody buy that cheesy DVD that's out a made those two choads that you trained? Parts of that DVD could be on Tosh 2.0...haha

    Doggpounders- How is everybody doing? I hope all of you are doing good and are getting after it both inside the gym and out.

    *Quick Update*I wish I could be on here and a part of bodybuilding more but my family, and other priorities take precedence. My wife is pregnant with our first child, we are having a babygirl!! Along with spending a lot of time at home with my wife "nesting" and traveling with her before our bundle of joy comes (Due in October), I started a new position at Roche 7 months ago as a Cell Analysis Specialist. I sell research use only instruments and reagents The work is challenging, exciting, fun. My main focus is targeting Cancer researchers as we have unique offerings for studying the various mechanisms of Cancer. I work with some extrordinarily smart individuals and am more of the "pitchman" when it comes to selling the instruments and new assays that can be run. I was recently part of the team that helped design a new assay on our instrument to study different metastatic colon cancer cells and their rates of invasion. Our design has brought new insights into their characteristics of invasion and what would have taken a year to study took a week. That is what motivates me at my job, that I am helping researchers make big strides in understanding cancer to one day figure out how to cure it forever!

    So here's the real reason I am here. I am finally at a point where I want to build my own "Warrior Gym" in my house and came to the pros for some feedback as what to put in my little gym. I have essentially a 13x14 room that am I am going to lay rubber flooring on. I will have a treadmill and an area for a bumper plates for deads, power cleans, clean and press, etc. I will have a pullup/dip station. and I wanted to ask you guys a couple questions:

    What else should I put in there?
    What do you guys think about a Powertec station?
    Should I also try and fit dumbells up to 100lbs? (I am an old washup has been I don't think I can even lift 80lbs anymore)

    If you guys were going to build your "Warrior Gym" what would you put in it?

    Keep in mind that I am going to be 34+ DC'ing where you will be doing 15-20 rest pause sets focused on moving the weight not necessarily focused on moving big poundages.....I am also incorporating a lot of speed/power movements as I am also donig a lot of sports (men's baseball, tennis, obsticle course running 5k & 10mile courses along with mini marathons)

    I appreciate any and all feedback/suggestions.... Thanks in advance for input you guys/gals have....

    Again I hope all of my bodybuilding friends are doing well, I think about all of you often... All the best to you!!!!

      Is this Dan Gable here on IM?... LOL

      FRANCO!!! What's happenin'!

      I like the gym idea. I'd do an ironmaster (www.ironmaster.com) and get some Olympic DB handles.

      I put a gym in my motorhome - 8 x 10 foot space and rigged up cables to do pulldowns, rows, etc. 800+lb and I was good to go.

      Home gym (with the ironmaster) is at the start here:

      I've attached some pics of my motorhome gym.

                WOW!! I thought you were either dead or kidnapped by aliens. If you have room, try to find a power cage. You can do a lot of movements in it and still be safe. Or you could go out and buy yourself a nice dress
                Its not the size of the hammer, its the size of the man holding the hammer.

                  Get a curl rack and do some squats in it. Lol, Whats up man. I have a little girl and it is the best thing that happened to me. I miss having my old gym in the basement. My wife always knew when I was doing deads.

                              I have the PowerTec hack-leg press in my home gym -LIKEIT, Ive played on the PowerTec Leverage station and its a good piece of equip but if you can fit a smith mach I'd go with a Smith, i have a Bodymasters version luv it!
                              The only one I like better is the Life Fitness model due to the height but it may not fit in a 8foot room

                              If your not ripping a tendon your not working the muscle to its fullest capacity!

                              I just kinda feel if the weight wasn't so heavy, I could lift it:
