Advice on weight equipment?
I want to put together a home gym, and I thought I would see if anyone has any advice as what to look for or avoid.
I have been away from my bike for the last month or so, but have had access to a cheep bench and about 100lb of weights, and I have been taking advantage of it to build and maintain muscle... I have also found that I enjoy working out with weight.
My plan is to hit up CL and find some weights, good bar, and a good bench. after that I'm not to sure what to look for. I think I would like a tower that would allow me to move the bench and do squats, and a bench that has a leg developer and curl attachment... at least I think I do.
Any advice would be great, as would links to information about what to look for or what to avoid.
I have some adjustable dumbbells so I was thinking I would stick with a 1" bar, any reason not to?
Like I said I feel like I'm walking into this a little blind, so any info/advice would be great... I'm looking to become healthier and stronger, not become a weightlifter, ultimately I want to become a more complete cyclist.
