Anyone know where I may be able to purchase a barbell and plates and at home squat rack without paying a crazy amount?

What are you classing as crazy? I’ve just priced up a set from Rogue and it was <$2k which I thought was pretty decent.


Craig’s list

I think the resale market is going to be really good in a couple of months, with gyms opening back up now and if we don’t go into a second wave with the pandemic. I’d hold off and look at craigslist and Facebook marketplace regularly if you can. Otherwise I’ve peeked at sites like rogue and they’re getting things back in stock and doesn’t appear to be any price inflation. Check out FringeSport, they’re a good alternative to rogue and have cheaper prices.

Perhaps, but once I had my own rack set up in my basement, I can’t imagine why I would go to a gym. Having my own setup with everything I need and no waiting is just better.

Does anyone have a home gym on top of carpet? Had a garage gym built for powerlifting before moving and now contemplating building a gym in a spare carpeted room of a new house.

Online suggestions are to basically construct a platform with stall mats over plywood over the carpet. Worried about any stability issues with heavy squats and deadlifts. Anyone use this set up or have recommendations?

Lazy summer and lots of regression in strength. For lower body, noticeably more loss in my squat than deadlift. Is this indicative of deterioration in a specific muscle that I should focus on rebuild?
