Default How many basement lifters on the MAB?

I've always lifted at home. Once I decided to start powerlifting and considered competing, I had to add more plates and a power rack (picked up the rack from the local PD, the chief told me he didn't want any of his guys getting hurt in it). All my deals came from Craigslist, gotta love it. I was just wondering how many MABers lift at home, and what equipment they've added to their collection over the years. GHR set-up is next for me, right now I use a punching bag laid out on the floor, with a bar loaded up to hold my feet....ugly but gets the job done!

i was in the basement but moved to the garage for overhead clearance.

Just hung a punching bag. Besides the basic rack, plates and DBs I have 2 truck tires and an incline bench with a leg extension/curl attachment. I also have a 75# trap bar.

A bunch other stuff that I don't remember and use with widely varying frequency

I've been thinking about tires...never tried flipping one, but it looks fun.

How do you like the hammers? Those are another thing I want to try.

Basement lifter, but I share it with the clothes line and cleaning supplies.
I graduated to a power rack this year and have added 45's from Walmart as I need them. Also just bought a few hard rubber pads for the floor so I don't crack the cement floor while deadlifting. I try to treat myself every year to some kind of upgrade. Maybe a heavy bag next year. Hmmmm.
