Home Gym

This is the first time I used the bench and spotter arms and felt pretty comfortable with the set up.  I still had my daughter spot me, but I would feel comfortable working out by myself.

The next updates I have been considering are lighting, heat, barbell storage and plate storage.  These will probably be DIY upgrades and there are clever ideas on Pinterest and other sites.  For lighting, I am thinking about getting an LED Garage Light replacement for the current incandescent bulb.  Heat will be a challenge and will likely be a handy man install if this rolls into winter.  Barbell storage will probably look something like this from  Right now I have 4 bars and no room for gun rack style storage.  I am not convinced about plate storage.  I have seen wall storage and weight tree options, but both seem a little excessive in terms of cost and footprint.

My garage gym is essentially 4 stall mats or 96 square feet.
