I'm figuring the consensus here is eat well (which I do), and do these things?
What's your budget?

IMO these are the perfect places to start

A squat rack which is probably around $350 new, I got one used for $100 on craigslist. Get one with a pull up bar

a barbell and weight set. Usually sold in 300lb sets. It's about $200-300 new. The barbell isn't anything great but it is good enough. Mine has lasted years with multiple drops.

A bench to slide in the squat rack to bench press.

Then you can get random things as you wish. I love my olympic rings for dips, pull ups, chin ups, ring rows etc.

Most important thing is to eat a lot. Let us know if you have more questions or hit me up on fb
