After getting fed up with my gym's crap, I decided to construct the home gym I've always wanted.
Here's a pic
Powercage, olympic bench 560lbs of olympic weight, 2 bars, adjustable DB handles, neck harness, a 2 and 3 board set-up for board presses, and a mock deadlifting platform with the puzzle mats.
Needless to say, I'm very happy.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
BJJ wins again!

I'd rather have that than where I work out. I teach in a middle school and they've got a "fitness room." I like the elliptical machine, much better than running at SuperDuper Heavyweight. I do not like the bazillion shiny machines with the awkward range of motion seemingly designed for very small people with very short limbs. I can't even use the hamstring curl or the leg extension--it's just too awkward.
You're a lucky man. I don't really have room for a home gym, and my garage is falling down, literally. I've thought about joining a "key club" gym in the town between work and here, but it seems like a shame to pay there. Enjoy yourself.

The Air Force provided well enough, and besides, all I care about is the garage =P

Oh, I meant your parent's place in RB. Did they have to evacuate?

Ah, nah, they're fine last time I checked. I don't think it's affecting them. Thanks for the concern though.

bastard! I did this exact same exercise (figured out the gear costs vs. gym membership) when re-evaluating gym renewal/gym change.
My wife convinced me I should just re-join.
Now I'm stuck in guido-poor form-bicep building-land for the next year......
they don't even have dumbells heavier than 90lbs... WTF.
