Well, had to hit a pose for my daughter, she's in S. Korea for 7 weeks (2 more to go, cant wait for her to get home), but I sent her this, she said "you'd be the biggest guy in Korea", (Im only 5' 6") she said, "I'm not talking about height".

Glad my girls still think Im Superman, even at age 23 and 21 respectively. (Sammy and Sabrina)...

Home gyms change based on demand . Mine ebbed and flowed based on
how many friends could train in my basement .At one time we had 6 people
training at once , which was too many for the space . The 3 man bare bones
1975-85 set-up was ideal .
Retooled York portable power rack (pull-up bar , dip bars and squat/bench posts)
Super duty Ironman flat to incline , 16 " high and weighed 125# !
1000#s of Roberts/Billard/York standard plates
(2) 1.250 dia. 6 foot knurled cold rolled steel bars
1 Bollinger 4 ft. EZ curl bar + 2 Bollinger superman 16" dumbell handles.
Everlast 80# heavy bag 1 self designed payload arm for powerrack so
you could leverage press/bench/leg press . During that period the gym saw
usage at least 3 times per week . I draw down there now and when I close my
eyes I hear Cummings or Calvo or Frankie Read grunting away from back in the day.
Now it's only me with ancouragment from old Uncle Ted and the calender cuties ...

Youre right Sticks, definitely based on demand and what one needs. I realize how much stuff I have/had.

I sold off 3 Olympic sets last Saturday. I put them on Craigslist last FRI (for 50.00 each) all 3 were gone on SAT AM instantly. (A good price for 300 lb. sets with bar). I still have lots of leftover sitting in old gym side (other garage stall). I gave

I still have in new gym side, 12 York 45's, 10 Ivanko 45's, all the 35's and 25's (York) that one would need, 3 York (old) power bars, a Buffalo bar (TDS knock off), 2 dumbell racks w/ needed bells, etc. (More than enough). I have an Eleiko powerlifting set I'm going to put on Craigslist and give someone a good deal on that. So yup, one CAN have too much stuff. 8-)

We're re-doing a room in the basement (or lower half) of the house, so the globes will move out to the garage and Ill build a display for them all around that old Jubinville isometric rack. (Dont mind the mess, work in progress).
