    That bar on the floor in the first two pics, the one you stand inside, I've seen it before used for shrugs and squat-eqsue deadlifts (I don't know what to call them). Is that all it's used for? What do you use it for?

    It's called a trap bar.

    I'll keep the bells on ebay in mind. Right now, my training isn't suffering from an absence of them, but maybe I'll treat myself after my next DITY.
    What base are you moving to?

    holly ****, i can't even call my work out area a 'home gym' anymore after seeing this thread. Nice setup, its about 10 times more impressive that you actually use it regularly.

    My workout area consists of a heavy bag, 4x 4 m of that jigsaw padding, deadlift bar, 200kg of assorted weights, a bench but no rack, dumbell bars and bolts so i can adjust the weights, skipping rope and one of those giant ball things. Don't use it nearly enough with all the other training i do.

    Same base, but they're demolishing my house, so we're moving to new housing on base.

    KFC: It's a trap bar, and you can use it for a ton of things. Paul Kelso writes about it in a lot of his work if you want some background. You can use it for tons of deadlifting/shrug variations, along with overhead pressing, raises, or pretty much anything else you can wrap your mind around.

    I just bought some dip bar handles for the cage. I'm looking forward to that.
    Are you not worried about losing out on functional muscle...?

    Sick set up. What are your max's on squat/dead/bench looking like nowadays? And whats your rough training method, conjugate method ala westside?

    How are you going to develop real functional strength without a BOSU balance platform and a yoga ball?*

    Nice!
    Too bad you're so far away. . .
    I just gave my nephew and his buddies a bunch-a
    stuff from my storage closet (well, wifey cleaned
    out all my play stuff to store ??), bags & weights.

    Anyway, they make pulley inserts for the top of
    your power rack, for cables.

    Now all you'll need is a water fountain, and a step!

    No idea on my maxes. I posted a 475 squat a few months ago, but haven't realy tried for anything heavy on either lift for a while. I've actually lost 10lbs from the flu, and decided to use this as an opportunity to fix my diet a bit.

    I'm actually experimenting with my training a little bit. I got rid of all of my speedwork, for a few reasons.

    1: I don't feel I'm advanced enough of a lifter to benefit from it, and being a non-geared lifter presently, I feel that it doesn't have a great degree of carryover.

    2: I feel that there's a lack of specificity in my training, and that my work capacity in general is pretty low (my fault for a lack of additional workouts), and I feel I can addresss both of these issues by using an RE protocol.

    So basically, I'm doing ME/RE for both upper and lower.
    Meex: I've seen the power rack cabel attachments, I'm thinking about getting them, but right now the bands are doing the trick. I'm really looking forward to my dip bar attachments, haha.
