    A few months ago I gave up my gym membership as I just couldn't afford it. And it was a bit out the way and after a friend dropped out I slowly lost motivation for going.

    So other than pre-season football training I've not done anything else for a while.

    My parents are clearing out the garage and said if I want to turn it into a "home gym" type thing I can.

    With a bit of help paying for it their will be a bench (with a squat rack) and about 100kg of weights. We've already got a treadmill and an excersise bike.

    Curious how many people work out at home with this kinda set up, or do you really have to fork out a gym membership? The fact a friend or two would train with me at home is also an added bonus to keep up motivation.

    If you're willing to spend money, it'd probably be easier. You'd need a squat rack and a bench minimum though, and you'll quickly outgrow 100kg of iron.

    That's kind of what I was hinting at. Just get some new plates off eBay as and when.

    yeh, my parents turned our spare bedroom into a gym type thingy. I still don't use it, lol. I'd rather go down the gym - that's where all the gorgeous personal trainers are
