BG is fat and needs to get back into shape - garage gym time

Well I have been pretty absent around here because my fat ass hasn't been working out, I moved to the burbs so getting to the gym is a challenge, I do have a garage though and am looking at setting up a squat rack, looking at the Rogue Echo stand, thought on other equipment?

I have a crappy bar, suggestions on cheap ones would be grest, will mostly be used for squats, DLs, and presses.

Best place to get KBs and bumper plates?

I have a flat bench, what else do I need?

I'm not looking to spend a fortune so any input would be appreciated.

Go with EliteFTS. I have their 2x2 power rack and it's an absolute lifesaver.

ohhhh I love this. Bars I love again faster team barbell. Cheap and good. Bumpers are pretty similar everywhere. I like rogue and mdusa (pendlay). KB's either of those places as well. What's the goals here. BTW I'll be in Boston this weekend at Extreme beer fest. I have the s-2 stands from rogue. You may want to get the spotter arms with it to feel a little safer. I do not have them but I want them. Stud mount pull up bar too.

You beer snob.

I'm doing the final move this weekend and will be able to asses the space further when I'm done, the garage currently has a 4 foot wall of snow in front of it.

I just want somewhere where I can squat, deaflift, and press, adding in some KBs and sandbags for accessory work, not going to set up anything crazy.

It's only a single car garage that is also used for storage so I won't have tons of room.

Ok pretty sure I'm going with the Rogue SML-1 with safety arms, the ceiling isn't high enough for anything bigger, or for standing presses which suck, but I can work with it, can do some press work in the driveway if needed.

Solly, your flooring is just horse stall mats from tractor supply right?

How tall are the ceilings and how many sq ft do you have to work with?

Not sure about exact measurements but the ceiling is maybe 7 feet high, its a single car garage that I'll most likely have half of to work with once I move some stuff around, just enough space for squats, deadlifts, bench and seated presses.

I would 100% get the new wall mounted folding rack that rogue released recently. I'd post a link to it but I really have to get up to take a piss and want to go grab lunch lol

No walls to mount it to, just concrete and a not too sturdy wooden wall separating the two garages.

I'll jump on that plan once I get my equipment squared away, should be another month, I need to go pick up a bunch of stuff in NJ.
