Default Member Ugo's Home Gym

I'm visiting my family, so yesterday I lifted with Ugo in Philly. Ugo's got a dinosaur training home gym (that's what I call it, not him) with lots of neat things to work with. Check it out:

Power Rack: it's a 20-lb. bar. Everything's sturdy. Ugo said that years ago, he unracked 1,000+ lbs. using this same bar and rack



Isometric Machine: the copper colored bar is what you use to perform the lift. You can adjust the tension, but there are no weights. There is no resistance during the eccentric phase; on the concentric, you press as fast and hard as you can


Isometric Machine platform and meter: the blue part is the metal platform where you stand. You can see the meter that measures the amount of force -- pretty much like a Tendo unit, but it's analog (obviously), not digital

Small Rack: Ugo's got a small adjustable rack in his garage. You can use it for bench, too, or dips or pretty much any movement that begins below your shoulders


100-lb. Pancake Plates: these are just awesome. I didn't know anyone made these flat plates in 100 lbs.


Bench with "Fat Bar": The bench looks like it's seen better days, but it's as sturdy as it has to be. Ugo said he's had it since he was a teenager, and it's the same bench he used to press 400 when he weighed over 200. The fat bar is a 20-lb. bar with a fat metal sleeve over it. Seemed to be between 2 and 2.5 inches thick


One end of the Fat Bar



Ugo also has some chains, bands, dumbbell sets, an incline bench, a bag of sand, an inner tube of sand, and I don't even know what else. Pretty much everything you need to train hard and add some variety. The isometric machine is my favorite piece. I think it would be great to use after a lower body workout. You can use any foot position you want and press as hard or light as you want. The weightless eccentric phase is a great feature.

That's a way cool gym. I'd call it a Dino Gym too, it just makes you want to lift heavy and odd.

The iron is there during my times of happiness, sadness and anger. The iron is there available through the 4 seasons and inclement weather. The iron is there to either comfort me or motivate me. The Iron manages to show me how strong I am or how humble I need to be. The iron does not yell, but it always demands respect. The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.
