I'm an aspiring home gym aficionado. Once I get a home, I'll make a gym. This is kind of what I picture my gym to be like. Did you use some sort of plan/blueprint for your wooden squat rack or did you just eyeball it and go for it (this is coming from a guy who knows nothing about building crap by himself)?

Awesome man. That looks super simple. I have a couple of questions though...

1) I noticed there's a board that connects on top as well. What would be the measurement for that?

2) How much weight are you able to put up on there without it getting too sketchy?

Thanks for the feedback.

Bobby- really sorry for the delay man, just seen this now.


the most I have put up on it 120kg, this seemed fine.

as for the bars at the top, if its the small one bars that connect the the front and back bars, I cant say, I kinda of made some changes on the fly.

I have another design in mind. Ill draw it up for you in the coming days. something the will be easier to build & hold more weight

Bobby, here's the updated design for anyone who doesn't want to cut angles etc

ignore the bad terminology

if you use 4inch x 4inch lengths of timber and double them up on the areas that the bar will rest this should be quite strong.


no Guarantees though!

Nice. Looks like you should maybe use some wood glue to secure some of the beams... anyway, thanks for the info. It'll be a while before I actually start building one of these but at least now I have a point of reference.

Thanks again and keep posting your home gym pics!

Ill go into more detail soon.

pre bore the wood before you screw it together, and glueing is definitely recommended. metal brackets could be used also, haven't fully thought it out,
some of these things change on the fly.

I'm looking at starting a power gym in my town. Myself and several other guys at the fitness center (blah) are kind of tired of the anti weight lifting attitude. Does anyone have any info on finding good quality equipment (bars, dumbbells, racks, etc...) that are affordable. This is not a money making venture just a place to train hard venture, equipment looks don't count.

Not sure how close you are to the Texas/Louisiana state line but Garry Frank (Baton Rouge Louisiana)sells tons of used equipment. You name it, he's usually got it.
