Nice. I’ve been using heavy d-balls lately. They give you an incredible workout.
Wish my gym had d-balls, they sub wallballs for the movement, but it’s not the same.
They’re not cheap. Wallballs are not a good substitute.
Biggest we have is 30#, not nearly heavy enough. Wish we had some bikes too. Sigh.
You need a new gym. We have up to 150 lb. D-balls.

Sadly, that’s gonna be the solution.

This is our garage setup. 3/4” rubber flooring so you don’t have to worry about dropping the bar. We’ve got about 300 lbs. of bumper plates, so we can do just about anything. My wife uses it a lot. She can probably strict press more than most of the men here.Image

While I like and am relatively proficient at Oly lifting, during the week, I'm mostly traditional bench/squat/deadlift on a power rack in the garage. Same rack allows me to do pullups, bent-over rows, overhead press, etc..., so I basically don't need to go to the gym anymore.

That’s the way to do it.

Great setup!! If I didn’t enjoy the social aspect and motivation of a CrossFit gym so much I’d put together what I need in my garage.

That’s just for accessory work and days we can’t make it to the gym.

i love the set up. Best part: if you shit your pants doing true vertical squats, the washer/dryer is right there. Well thought-out.

And you can open the garage door to air it out.
