Yeah, my wife and I were both fed up with all of the idiots. It got to the point where she hated lifting, and my workouts were taking 2 hours to complete with all the waiting and lack of motivation. This was a great investment. It only cost about $600 total to set up."Emevas,

Funny that you mention the 2-hour long workouts. That's what my g/f and I have been experiencing when we go to the gym. Too many fucking gym fags cluttering the squat stations, doing curls and ****. We get a lot more done at home, but it's unfortunate we don't have space for a power rack station... yet.

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

No machines at all?!? How are you supposed to blast your upper pecs without decline cable flys?You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

I actually like the funny looks people give me a the gym when I do farmer walks or good ole dumbell swings.
But I wish I had the space to set up something like this. I particularly like the puzzle mat setup for the deadlifts. Nice touch.

Lifting between 12 and 5 am does have benefits. I don't think I've ever had to wait for anything.
