Hi, hoping for some advice here, I have read the FAQs and can see I would need a squat rack, bar, bench and weights to get started, so I know what I want but haven't a clue where to look and what's good. Can anyone recommend a good place to go for novices like me? Also is it even realistic for me to have a home gym in a 1st floor flat (purpose built so concrete floors) in an 8.5ft by 9.5ft room?*

The room is a bit small and you'll need to spend a fair bit but I say it's possible. Get a decent powercage with the attachments (including bar for pull ups) and some barbells. My advice would be to get a rack which is set into the floor so bench pressing and squatting is safe, and also make sure you can move the bench out from under the cage should you need the space. Then work out the length of the bar you'll use for deadlifts and make up a station for that using plywood so you don't chip the floor and ruin your weight plates.Last edited by Atlas Thugged; 02-08-2016 at 13:17.
