And yeah, that bench video is awesome. I don't do the huge enjoyable human being cheater arch, but even a moderate one, keeping my back tight, and watching my elbows solved any and all shoulders pain I used to get when benching.

Thanks bros.

Does this look like a decent cage? http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...&pf_rd_i=507846

I'll probably just strip the paint off of the safety pins. It's cheap and looks sturdy otherwise. Craigslist has no cage that's worthwhile and nothing else really impressed me but I didn't look that much.


What's cool is that I'll probably lift there instead of at the gym, which should mean that I can record every set of anything ever. This will become the most densely packed training log ever, with every failure and butt scratch and stupid conversation logged and observable for the curious goon.

I looked through every posting in SA and Austin and it has been eye opening. So many people, working out with so many 25lb plates. And barely anyone has over 300lbs worth of weights. No one has more than 4 45s total. Talk about aiming high, no wonder they're selling their poo poo

Well both of my parents are extremely OCD and obsessive and germophobic. I kind of am too. They told me try for under $2000 and get everything new. I purchased a Texas Power Bar, that cage I linked and a TDS bench that's rated up to 1000lbs lol. Now I'm gonna go check out some stores and look for new plates. I'm up to about 900$ spent. My dad said all of the plates need to match and that he doesn't care how much it costs so I'm gonna go buy 600lbs in plates. I'm also gonna get supplies to build a proper lifting platform. This is gonna fuckin own. The room we're converting is pretty big, it's about 20'x20'. Eventually I'm gonna get them some cool poo poo like a GHR, maybe another cage and another Texas Power Bar but I'm starting them off with the essentials.


This is pretty much a dream come true for me except it's for my parents/sister. They're all pretty similar to me in mindset and willpower and my Dad is already pretty strong for being 50 so I'm excited for them. I've always wanted a room away from the public where I can rest for 5 minutes without some turd bag stripping the plates off of my 495lb squat bar. I've actually had someone pull all the 45s from one side and make a huge crash while I was peeing. None of that poo poo. I'll also record everything I ever do ever and put it on youtube.

I'm waiting for the components of the home gym to arrive, meanwhile we already have a bar and 255lbs in plates so I started my mom and sister off.

My mom buried her squats with ease and finesse. dem genetics. also had them military press and deadlift. My sister got feisty and pulled 115x5 with ease. Fuckin cool.

your family is cool. my family has pretty good strength genetics but are all the laziest people on the planet. my brother pulled 3 plates for an easy triple with little effort after a couple months. whenever he'd pull heavy he'd wrap a t-shirt around the bar so he wouldn't "hurt his hands" (?). i still wonder what he'd be capable of if he tried. my dad actually did lift for a long time and told me he at one point OHP'd 250 for like 12 but he often took long breaks from lifting and has since stopped entirely.

i wish i could lift with my fam......

ha. VO (particularly her butt) inspired my mom and sister to want to lift weights. They're just obsessed with butts and want to only squat and deadlift and do weighted glute bridges but I told them they have to bench and press too. My mom thinks I'm freaky but is also proud of having a big strong son. My dad mainly cares about being lean and having abs but he has started deadlifting and squatting within the past year, he's 160 and handling 300lbs so not bad for 50. I figure that if I work out with him he'll be wanting to get stronger.

I need to find some good lifting platform schematics. We decided to use a room that's a little smaller, I think it's probably 12'x12'. I'm thinking of following this plan but I have no experience with it. It'd probably be super cool to squat on a wooden surface though. I just need to find the rubber mats and get some plywood that doesn't suck.


I'm also gonna build an adjustable box for box squats out of 2x4s and some plywood so I can set the box up from anywhere between 10 inches to 17 inches. Maybe something like this.
I'm also gonna build some boards for board pressing. Ffffffuckkkk being unemployed right now owns.

Man, I wish my dad cared about lifting weights. He is a bizarrely strong motherfucker but I guess thats because he worked on a fishing boat from child. Tales tell of a time he came across a guy whos car had broken down in the middle of nowhere, so my dad at ~22 years old just lifted the loving back end of the car off the ground so the guy could get his tire off. My mom verified that this actually happened. I will never be that strong.

He hasnt lifted a weight in like 35 years but he can still beat me in an arm wrestle pretty easily

Thanks for the good genes dad.

Yeah they did great. I was thinking we would need a lady bar and all for military press starting off but not so. Proud of them! This is the coolest thing to know that my future in-laws will be strong and healthy and proud of their asses. What more could you wish for loved ones?

I am still working on my parents. Right now they are both misguided drunks and my mom is a cardio queen/class instructor but I am thinking they still have at least 20 good years of slow decay before the steep sprial downwards towards dementia and broken hips. So there is still hope!

my dream is to get everyone I care about lifting weights. I gotta somehow convince my grand parents to squat a weight. My grand mother is super underweight and needs some muscle for sure.

This article inspired me to try to get my mom to invest in a weight room and lift some weights.

quote:

And before you ask: at present there is absolutely no solid evidence that strength training—or any
other exercise or dietary program—will substantially prolong our life spans. But the preponderance of
the scientific evidence, flawed as it is, strongly indicates that we can change the trajectory of decline.
We can recover functional years that would otherwise have been lost. There is much talk in the aging
studies community about “compression of morbidity,” a shortening of the dysfunctional phase of
the death process. Instead of slowly getting weaker and sicker and circling the drain in a protracted,
painful descent that can take hellish years or even decades, we can squeeze our dying into a tiny sliver
of our life cycle. Instead of slowly dwindling into an atrophic puddle of sick fat, our death can be like
a failed last rep at the end of a final set of heavy squats. We can remain strong and vital well into our
last years, before succumbing rapidly to whatever kills us. Strong to the end.
