My home gym set up/Starting Strength log
 
figured I'd start a new thread and show you guys what I set up in my garage.

Just began the Starting Strength workout also.

Thanks glight for all the tips. Just finished the second workout.

The goal is to progress by 5 lbs on most lifts (15lbs on DL) every workout so you start very light. I don't plan on hitting my current 5rep maxes until maybe 5 weeks from now.

Each workout is 3x5 except deadlifts 1x5 and cleans 5x3.

Workout A
Squat 70
Bench 55
Deadlift 85

Workout B
Squat 75
Overhead Press 55
Power Clean 95

Everything is very easy at this point so hopefully I'm ready when the 5 week mark comes. It's literally been months since I've workout with weights so I'm hoping to get right back where I was.

The bench works as a squat rack too which is in the position you see it in now. The only thing that's missing right now is a pullup/dip station I have to pick up from a friends house.

Everything looks fine except the treadmill being right in front of the wall. That's going to get old quickly.

Good luck. I would love to get a heavy bag for my garage but that's about it. It's full of DIY equipment.

DylloS 10-11-2011 12:38 PM

Nice setup!

Hopefully the power cleans will get you into the olympic lifts and you build yourself a platform there as well.
