  • Really good list. Great advice on black friday deals. People really need to be patient, do research on what they want to purchase.

  • My Strength + Aesthetics workout program is now available for download!

  • I just bought this power rack, I have a 6 ft bar, that holds 500 pounds, do I need to get a 7 ft bar..or can I still use my 6 ft bar?

  • Nice jobs guys. You could also get a 2x4x8 or 2x4x10 for a few more bucks and have homedepot (or wherever you buy it) cut it for free to make it a good bench length to lay on top of your stools

  • You say losing weight rather casually. I started at 345 lbs. I’m down to 303 since the end of June 2018. I want to end up hiking, backpacking, and camping. So the cardio to me is almost as important as strength. Need to end up carrying a good amount of weight while hiking. And while I enjoy a treadmill I also get bored of it. My goal is probably 69-71 weeks to be at a healthy weight and in-shape. I was not always 100+ pounds overweight. I was a tennis player and the third fastest runner in my gym class throughout high school. That was with little to no effort on my part.

    So I have a little over a year and a half in which I wish to reach my goal. I’m also an ostomate, person with an ostomy. I lost my large intestine to cancer. I’m in my mid-30s and 5’7. So I have fear of core exercise. Had a trainer a few years back, before I was actually serious, have me do a lot of core workouts to assess my health. I spent the afternoon afterward on my living room floor writhing in pain as my abdomen was cramping. Sort of impossible to do anything like a massage on your stomach when it’s majority fat and has no organ backing it up. So I’m trying to overcome that fear and move forward with losing weight and getting in shape.

    Any recommendations for people losing massive amounts of weight when building a personal gym space?

  • Personally I would invest a bit more (around 500) in a more stable power rack. Like y ou said, it’s the core of a home gym and a foundation for much more than the standard exercises. A firm rack combined with a set of gymnastics rings is a killer. Far better than dip bars. But I imagine the rack being wobbly wont be great for rings

  • When I get my own house I want to build my own home gym. I love going to the gym but sometimes it’s hard to get to the gym because of the time of day and work schedule, etc. Plus building it, exactly how I want it seems pretty cool

  • I want that set up! I’ve been watching for it on Amazon but it’s still sold out. Thx for the video, now I know for sure it’s a solid buy!

  • Thanks for sharing so many great information and tips in one video. Very inspiring and informative. Especially the secret in keywords

  • Dude no don’t go with cap. the cap weight’s are Fine Because you got 45LB Down to 2 1/2 LB But they Olympic bar they have a problem with rusting before you even purchase it I have seen brand new ones in the store that were already rusted The rogue power bar is Fine Though.

  • Good equipments, but for me only you need is resistance band set. Best thing ever you can do anything you want and its simple to use and you its cheap. I got my at trainhome shop (check on google) they are awesome and they have more products for home training.

  • Why u benching outside ur rack? You need a weighted belt for pull ups and dips, a tricep bar comes on handy pick both up for about 30 40 quid

  • From a purely aesthetic point of view your physique is perfectly balanced your not too big your not too ripped either and your proportions are decent your not a massive huge bodybuilder nor do you look like an Instagram model but they look ”plastic” good if you know what i mean they don’t look real you look like a very fit athletic guy with a great body the perfect balance imo if your goal is too just be healthy fit and have a good physique i think you achieved it:)

    however if your goal is too be a huge bodybuilder power lifter etc etc maybe not no offence intended in that comment

  • When you see your body shifting or leaning to the side, that means you aren’t strong enough for that weight. Dude, coming from a guy that had two hernias go down in weight, perfect your form and you’ll see more gains

  • My home gym cost £32….5 dimbells 1 curl bar 1 home table and 3kg leg weights……ive had more results from this then the fancy gyms….the reason is simple….at home u will train everyday simple….

  • I just want you to know that Walmart has the best deal on weights and dumbbells. Go look at the cap rubber hex dumbbells. Shipped for 1.00 a pound. Less than you can get them used. Also they have sales and got kettlebells for.75 shipped. Walmart is killing it. Go check out their website.

  • I got my brandnew standard barbell bar for 20 dollars, a pair of dumbel for 12 dollars and some decent 15-30lbs metal plates for $60. And I’ve been using it for about a year now. Definitely worth it

  • Great video my friend, thanks. I am in Europe don’t think the market is so huge here. Get back to you with question. Have a nice weekend.

  • Just built a home gym because of good ol’ carona. Luckily I was able to get most of my gear a few weeks ago before everyone selling used gear near me cottoned on to the fact that their old rusty weights are now highly desirable and was able to get about 800lbs of plates for around $500, plus a curl bar, olympic bar and cheap bench press/leg extension setup. Now everyone is selling their plates, even cheap ass cap stuff, for like 2.50-3.00 usd a pound. And they get snapped up withing 5 minutes of being listed.. EVERYTHING else is sold out commercially, even the local warehouse outlet place is cleaned out of all their freeweight stuff. No bars, no plates, no kettlebells, dumbells or racks… NOTHING but cardio machines and crazy expensive cable machines. I had to build a damn power rack out of wood. It actually works really well, just not as nice looking as a real metal one. Everything is almost done though and I am elated to start lifting again.

  • What are the items called? No help in the description, and you just show the items in the video. I don’t know what bar you used.

  • @Joe Fazer, plz correct the fking back on 7:09, that makes my eyes bleed. Thats the problem of having your own gym, you have no one to correct you. If u get into a gym you will learn much more and faster.

  • I’d like to see you try and buy some weights for that in England the prices are ridiculous even for a rusty set of 20kg £250! Just human greed it’s really opened my eyes, disgusting

  • Do what i am doing got a make shift bench a 6 foot fence rod a couple of center blocks and you got a hardcore home gym. It gets the job done especially since there nothing out there.

  • Im` in the U.K… my best find was on gumtree (similar to craigslist) 160kg (350lbs) of standard diameter= 1″ plates for £25 $32

  • Great video man. I think you might benefit from a wireless lav mic though. Also, your rack seems a bit…. wobbly. In retrospect, would you have saved up a bit more money for a sturdier cage?

  • I’d suggest adding in music! Make it sound a little better, don’t know how I came across here I have a gym membership but why not!

  • 1:44 that’s literally what I ordered yesterday. This pandemic isn’t going to stop me from working out even though my gym is closed. Had to buy it all new since all the good second-hand stuff is sold out here.

  • Please do not copy this workout or diet it is stupid and unhealthy if you are looking to get in shape burn fat or build muscle dont copy him if he actully had a good diet and workout he would look 10 times better his body does not look healthy man you should watch athlean x or somone who know what there doing unlike this guy with shit form diet workout and posture look man not trying to be mean but you need to learn more about this stuff you are not nearly half as qualified to be giving advice i’m 17 6’1 81kg my bench 100kg pr squat 180kg pr deadlift 200kg pr

  • dont you find it funny how lifters know what you are saying in your grunts after a rep, “ahhh6hhhh, errrrr7eeee, hhhaa8aaa” 11:03 is an example

  • For those out of luck buying adjustable dumbbells, you can still find some on alibaba but they’ll still be expensive but not to the extent on ebay. On top of that, you won’t have to wait 4-6weeks for the suppliers to begin shipment again.

  • So like everyone I’ve started building a home gym since the shutdown. So far I have a flat bench with several dumb bells I plan to order a spin bike and add a squat rack. This video has been very informative.

  • You dont need all that.. c’mon.. just buy jergens lotion and lotion up and muscle up! If you know what I mean �� Its mostly good for your triceps and biceps

  • I like your review man!!! I was looking into this power rack and is now up to $499 (thanks COVID19) and estimated delivery is June. Lol I would totally get it if I could get it in 4 weeks or less. Good set up BTW

  • On FB market place, during the CV-19 pandemic, I was able to buy a power rack, barbell, 255 plate weight, pair of 25lb dumbbells, and an incline/decline bench for $380. I was able to go from completely relying on a gym to having my own in just a few days. Loved the video.

  • Thank you so,much. Seen so many “budget” gyms on youtube for like 2000 dollars. This is so practical and helpful. I just need to move some weight around and get started. This is totally all I need. and I can probably afford to get a real used bench somewhere

  • Great vid brother. Simple, concise and definitely for those on a budget. I appreciate your effort to make this.
    Be well, stay safe and healthy.

  • Good video man, on your bent over rows or pendlay rows bend your knees a little bit more so you can hip hinge further which will straighten out your back.

  • Just a caveat about the weight capacity… that’s static load. If you somehow dumped a bar or something from a few feet it would wreck your rack. A Rogue rack will survive a fucking tornado.

  • Guys, buy something you are going to use or else just dont do it. You will get after all much better results with cheap equipment if you are gona use it than the expensive one that is parked somewhere…Now, i have similar home gym equipment with this guy plus a portable stable bicycle due to extreme lack of space. I bought a folding bench with negative incline that does the trick also for abs workout. I even thought the pulley innovation, but mine melted from overuse…bought a nautical one made from plastic…over all i am happy with it there are many pros compared going to a local gym.

  • Definitely inflated the prices. I checked on Rogue Canada and the cost of a 45Lb pair was like 180$$z. Shipping was 400$$. Thanks for the information though bro will check on them when the prices neutralize.

  • I have that rack and it is awesome! Super stable, easy to build and unless you’re competing in a strong man competition it should be able to handle the weight you will throw at it.

  • Good equipments, but for me only you need is resistance band set. Best thing ever you can do anything you want and its simple to use and you its cheap. I got my at trainhome shop (check on google) they are awesome and they have more products for home training.

  • Nice set up. You should incorporate bands into your gym. They can add significant weight/resistance without all of the bulk plates.

  • So 11 months ago you squatted 90kg for 1 and now you’re box squatting it for a hard 5, man no hate, but that is terrible progress, you are clearly doing something wrong, that’s bad for a girl, no ones genetics are that bad, you are not being honest

  • Price gauging has reached disgusting level, people be digging out their old rusty junk plates and trying to sell you $2-3/lb…. a $25 set of adjustable dumbbells is now $125… bow flex is more thank doubled its price.. sigh ��

  • Great guidance on what is important and versatile equipment for a home gym… wish I’d seen this two months ago but it’s still useful! Thanks.

  • In university so my budget was literally $0. Checked 5. Used sites every hour I could, started picking up the free gym items. Slowly after reselling some, I got a budget and started to be able to buy good deals.

    7 months later

    1000lb Half rack, 600lb FID bench, two 1500lb bars, 200lbs in bumpers, 300lbs steel. 5-30lb fixed rubber dumbbells with rack, 250lbs standard weights and bars. Plus other bits here and there. And I’ve made almost $1000. It can be done.

  • Can you put the rack outside? Living in Belgium where’s theres rain quite often, I don’t want it to get rusty after a month… I need to put it outside because i want to do muscle ups and don’t have room anywhere inside

  • You dont need all that.. c’mon.. just buy jergens lotion and lotion up and muscle up! If you know what I mean �� Its mostly good for your triceps and biceps

  • Before Corona “The squat rack only costed me about $180’s.” After Corona: “Squat rack now costs $519.99.” I am better off making one myself lmao.

  • Ok if your trolling then great!!! nice little TROLL there!!! but if you are serious You can get a used bench, barbell and weights for 100 buck lol!!!!!! LOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!!!!!!!

  • I don’t have money to buy new equipment! I made a ghetto home gym! If you look at my gym you’ll see anyone could make a home gym!!!

  • I don’t usually comment on these, but big props man. Well put together video, very informative in a super down to earth way that makes it easy for pretty much anyone able to understand. Thank you for the info ����

  • Alright Joe, just wondering if you take any supplements? And if so which ones, could maybe include it in your next video.
    I am currently in roughly the same position as you were (16 years old) and not sure whether to take supplements or not as I struggle to get a lot of calories in, any tips?

  • Hey guys I encourage you to NOT take advice from “Coop” aka FUCKWAD. He was raised by human crud, has NO morals……and should have this page taken down. Don’t listen to this fruity ASSHOLE………price gouging during a crisis is NOT cool. Don’t turn in to an unethical piece of poop like “coop”.

  • This is such a GOOD video. Im 17 but i know for a fact in the future i want to dedicate a good chunk of my savings & time on my health and to do that I want to start investing in a home gym. Thank you!

  • @Garage Gym Reviews / Coop Do you happen to have the image the thumbnail is from? I need to see more detail on that garage wall mural!

  • Rogue squat stand with spotter arms,barbell and plates and air bike and you’re good to go…. what’s your take on block dumbbell bro? Thinking of grabbing some that go up to 90lbs

  • Love the vids. Real level headed observations. New drinking gamea shot each time he says “I get it” (or “price point” in other vids).

  • I’m not going anywhere near a gym after COVID started. To be honest I will miss the sauna and steam facilities ☹�� starting at home gym

  • I found this very informative as i am probably Building a Home Gym myself soon, but i Miss the leg exercises. Got any tips and Tools on that?

  • I’m in the process of building my own gym now. I’ve been searching Marketplace and just doing extreme lowballs. Like offering half or less then half their asking price. its been working.

  • I had a good friend who built a squat rack from lumber. Seems like a good way to save quite a bit.

    I don’t have a garage for my gym, so I can’t do much with barbells. But kettlebells, pull up bar, jump rope, adjustable dumbells, and resistance bands can take a new year resolutioner pretty far until they truly need a bar bell to reach higher. To be honest, even on my list, there are frills that a new entrant to the fitness lifestyle doesn’t need.

  • Snagged a half rack w/ lat pulldown for $180 and spent another $230 on 400lbs of weight, 2 barbells, weight tree, 2 benches w/ attachments and three different sets of adjustable dumbbells. I spent an ungodly amount of time on Facebook Marketplace and searching by posted time. Both weight purchases were made withing 5 minutes of each posting of the weights.

  • I live in Michigan everything everyone is selling are shitty standard weights for 200+ dollars, and I see people in Ohio sell Olympic stuff for 20-100 bucks but I don’t live in Ohio I hate the dummies in Michigan.

  • I always thought like: why tf would you build an home gym? Just go sign up for a local gym. And now because of the corona virus my local gym will be closed for at least a month and now i am just fucking jealous of your shit

  • I’ve had some luck on Craigslist and marketplace, sometimes not so much. Really kinda depends what you’re looking for. I bought 3 rogue kettlebells (16, 20, 24kg) used from someone for only $120 which is a freaking steal. My dad bought an old bench and off brand weight plates totally something like 110# on Craigslist for a little over $50. Other times I’ve found absolutely nothing. But whatever you do, always make sure to get a first hand look at the stuff you wanna buy

  • My goal is a nice power rack with free standing adjustable bench, dumbbells up to 100 in 10lb increments. A nice bar and plenty of plates. A cable machine. And a pull-up/ dip station. That’s 90% of the stuff I do in my commercial gym

  • Squat, deadlift are a very Great exercise, but I advice you to do some “hipertrophy” exercise like front squat, Bulgarian lunges, sissy squat ecc…
    In my experience I have obteined the best results with the combination of this exercise: squat and deadlift with heavy weight 4/6 reps range
    But after this compound movimento you need to do metabolic work and improve mindmuscle connetion with isolation moviment with 8/12 reps range.
    You will obtained the best result with the combine of mechanical stress and metabolic stress.

  • I purchased the same rack with every attachments for it including the lat pulley attachment. It will definitely do the job.Good video.

  • The problem with waiting and getting all that you want on the Black Friday sale especially from Rogue is that they don’t stock enough of the best and most popular equipment. The stuff is sold out. Hey ROGUE stock up on everything and be prepared to have almost enough of products to complete the orders placed.

  • It suck right now because my Barbell was a extremely cheap one and before this whole crisis started it broke badly and right now i am outta luck trying to get a Barbell:(

  • It’s a fast moving environment. The bowflex adjustable weights, featured here at 6:15, are going for up to $1200 on CL, NY. Just a sample of the price gouging in a crisis. Good job America. And this isn’t just NYC we should be better than this. = (

  • Myself personally these are the sort of things I would do before building a home gym

    1) know your environment, things like are you in a flat are you rented property have you got space dimensions neighbours sound and so on

    you have to really understand where you’re building your gym before buying anything

    2) research research research, blindly following someone on YouTube a personal trainer or some person at your gym = failure not reaching your goals and a very expensive equipment what might you not want anymore

    There are some really informative books out there which would help build your own personality and learn about how you going to train

    if you could afford it have a specialist coach Olympic lifter/ powerlifter/ strongman/ athlete coach

    Books and a specialist coach will help you massively deciding what type of equipment you need

    3) feed your mind, put up as many posters what inspire you want to train, put pictures of yourself even when you’re in bad shape, find inspirational words to put up on your walls,

    Music DVDs books anything what makes you think yes I’m going to work out today

    I’m going to eat healthily for at least 4 days and so on

  • I have a question for you:
    How many push ups could you do at the start and how many can you do now? I’m struggling and I can only do 3 sets of 10 reps

  • Your video setup was excellent and your personality also was right on, we appreciate your taking the time to help those of us that cannot afford a gym. Thanks.

  • One thing i haven’t seen discussed is the minimum space requirement for a home gym. I can’t use my garage for a home gym cause of various reasons, and the space that I can use for a home gym is quite small.

  • What’s the point in having a power cage if your not gonna use it? The bench and squats should have been done further back inside the cage. Otherwise your not getting the benefit of the safety bars and that’s why it’s wobbling cos you got all the weight resting on one end rather than the middle

  • I agreed to my son setting up a home gym in what was the living room. He says the equipment will have to be bolted to our hardwood floor. Is there an alternative to this? How do people secure the equipment on a garage floor? thanks for your help

  • Joe I’ve got weights and a bench at home I’m doing deadlifts and even if I do it light and the correct technique it still hurts my back

  • FYI That squat rack is $590 now I’m sure they raised the price because people are stuck at home. Gouge the consumer whenever you can I guess

  • For the best home gym equipment and amazing prices get your set up at They specialise in home workout equipment

  • My cheap gym set up.
    1) pillow case and a pound of rice bags as heavy bag
    2) using water shoes as to being my workout shoes (minimalist shoes)
    3) towel as a mat, sweat rag, and a bodyweight rows/pull-ups cable alt.
    4) utilizing any chair, bathtub, steady broom stick, kitchen table (w/marble surface), and/or a v shape branches as a dips bar/bench.
    5) using stairs for cardio (or hills)
    6) the bicycle inner tubing as resistance bands
    7) picking up old tires from Auto Stations
    8) using organic clothing to not have chafing
    9) carrying and lifting crates, luggage, and heavy stuffs through out the day to gain mass like strongmens.
    10) utilize plastic rain suit as to purchasing windbreaker for cheaper and verastile workout jacket.

  • In times like these, it’s important to be resourceful and work with what we’ve got at home! Great suggestions for a budget home equipment:)

  • I built good home free weight gym for around $450 to $500 bucks. My go to store for some of it was Ebay though. New items too. Other items at Walmart and even sporting good stores. Squat rack, bench, plates, bars, resistance bands, ect. Everything I need for every muscle group in my body.

  • I love things but sometimes I love you Mr. been more than this video I don’t love or love exist size but I love him more than I love all things but I love Mr. bean

  • Months of working out and dude still don’t know how to make proper forms on his exercises lmao, that’s exactly why ur physique is the same since the beginning

  • A tip for someone who has litterally no money is fill bottles with sand and water yhen tie those around a metal bar with rubber strips you could even use old bike tires and recycle them and with big bottles with handles you can get easy dumbells

  • I just don’t like the gym scene, the ones near me are popular and I like to have space and less crowd, so I prefer home gyms to just stay in shape and work out at my own pace.

  • What’s a great cheap addition is oly bar dumbells. Add the quick adjustable clips and u can use your barbell weights for your dbs and save big time. Great video. Would love to see one on maximising minimal space

  • Having a home gym is beyond beneficial and convenient. I’m sure I workout so much more than if I had to go to the gym! Quarantine or not

  • Hey Coop. Do you have any videos or articles on the differences between the abrams 2.0 and the first one? Is it worth the extra $150

  • If you’re buying in bulk from Rogue, use their Custom Quote feature (Google rogue custom quote) depending on the items, you can save hundreds over the normal cart price.

  • Good chin ups son, you should show the world your pull ups too. The true holy story of the exercise bar began in Greece and they were naked Olympians. I know today people talk, try speedos, but naked with nature music is probably the experience of strength and wrestling with the weight bars.

  • That is pretty much all what you need to hit every muscle on your body. Corona made me realize that you don’t need to go to a gym to be fit, and you can save a lot of money and time by training at home.

    Right now I’m only missing a Squat Rack just to have a similar setup like the one you have and so far I have spent $350 dollars.

  • Although prices are high i managed to still get some good deals.

  • Bro ur bent over row form was really bad. U should actually improve otherwise it can hurt ur back! Anyways u r just like a younger brother to me. Btw love ur content!

  • I recommend the mirafit or hardcastle power racks if you’re on a budget, if not then rogue, origin fitness or some of the bigger companies do really nice ones, neither the mirafit nor the hardcastle power racks shake like that though, that is ridiculous….

  • Honestly Brutha i give you mad props its not top notch actual equipment but it gets the job done. Your getting after it legit with no excuses

  • I was able to get a few things for cheap luckily with patience and constantly looking but i tell you one thing. Once states start opening back up i have a feeling things will level out

  • Resistance bands. My preference bodylastics. Jump rope. My preference Crossrope. Floor mat squares. That will more than get you started to see if you can create a habit. Then do what Coop says.

  • I dont get why people are making fun of this. I am 17 and all i have is dumbbells up to 20 lbs and a light barbell I made from a pullup bar, I dont have the money to go to a gym all the time

  • Nice vids bro, watched your whole series in a few days! Quick question, I have a similar home gym and was wondering are lat pulldowns without a leg restraint still as effective?

  • Hey joe, I also just left school with A levels cancelled. Would you have rather done your exams or are you happy they got packed in? Much love man

  • Dumbells and resistance bands. A bench. A barbell with a few bumper plates for landmine use and you should be good. A jump rope and wooden box for cardio.

  • This video is fucking pointless. You are not getting anything weight related for a budget price during this Corona virus shit. Not going to happen dude cliclbaaaait

  • Just stumbled on this channel…I purchased this type of power rack a couple of years ago now….best investment I made…it will come in handy while on quarantine lockdown…one question I have…I have a 6” Olympic bar…it has a 500 pound limit…will I need a 7” inch Olympic bar for the power rack?

  • Good tip you can always clean up used plates with a iron brush and some paint. Plenty of videos on YouTube on how to clean up old plates to make them look brand new..

  • Yeah mate I’ve found it so hard to find stuff luckily I’ve found someone with a bench squat rack weights ez bar etc and I have a pull up bar built in handmade in my garage roof ����

  • Is your bedroom on the first/ground floor? I just bought a squat rack, plates and bench, and I calculated that my floor will need to support 750 lbs (overestimate). I just don’t want to break through the floor. What are your thoughts on this regarding your bedroom gym setup? Thank you!

  • The company I work for is quite generous with annual bonuses, but they’re only paid in Amazon gift cards! This year I’m due for a real nice amount, so do you have any recommendations for building a home gym strictly from what’s on Amazon? Looks like they don’t have Rogue, but I’d be worried about buying something that’s just unsafe junk. Any brands on Amazon to avoid in general? Would like a full squat rack, adjustable bench, bar, weights, storage (either on the rack or separate), floor mats, pull-up bar to start. Thanks!

  • I was looking at extreme fitness I thought the prices were a bit high, managed to get a trap bar for now I’ll do deads row ohp with that but need to find weights, funny enough they doubled there price for the trap bar
