  1. I thought I'd begin posting my workouts, not all but some, for personal reference and hopefully it may interest others. This training journal will detail full body workouts performed from 3 days a week to as much as 6 days a week. It will also detail split training workouts from time to time (depending upon how I feel), and grip training. A variety of thick grip training tools will be used throughout my training which will include, axles, thick grip dumbbells, fat grips, alpha grips, etc. If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask. I will also post links to the training equipment I use.
  2. Here's a photo of my current home gym setup. Half of my livingroom in my house is split into a training area. There's not much space but there is enough room to get solid workouts in. To the left is my brand new Power Rack by Iron King. To the right is my "custom" single stack lat pulldown machine by Watson. I also have all my thick bar Grip Training attachments (not pictured) and Fat Gripz / Alpha Grips stored just under my TV. In another area of my house I have Ironmaster Quick Lock Adjustable Dumbbells including a large selection of Hex Rubber Dumbbells ranging from 1kg up
  3. Ordered a couple of new items for my home gym a few weeks ago and they arrived yesterday. I'm not an experienced grip trainer but over the last several years I've taken a strong liking to grip training. So when I perform typical movements like pulldowns, rows, deadlifts, curls etc I either use some type of Fat Grip like Alpha Grips (* Apply "strengtholdschool" at checkout to SAVE 10%!) or a custom thick grip implement. I own several thick grip axles, barbells and dumbbells, all measuring different sizes i.e. 2" grip, 2.36" grip etc. Country Crush is a well known company found
  4. Ironmaster, the KING of Home Gym, Adjustable Dumbbells, now offer 'Micro Plate Loading'. The fractional weight plates allow lifters to increase their dumbbells / barbells by the smallest amount of 1.25 lbs or 0.57 kg which is excellent for strength training purposes or just simply general resistance progression. I haven't been on the Ironmaster website in a while so this post may or may not be relevant for many people. However after browsing Ironmaster's website today I discovered this relatively new product - "Micro Weight Plates". I don't own these as of yet but I do own regul
  5. MONEY... MONEY... MONEY... Nothing but consistently empty pockets and doom, gloom breaking news on daily tv. In the land of regular, daily living for us ordinary hard working folk, the daily costs of just getting by in everyday life, can be financially tough. Finding a balance to save, pay bills, buy essential things like food and water (and beer lol) can be extremely challenging. This is where Visa cards become your new best friend (not recommended). I should be happy with what I've got in life but unfortunately one important thing is annoying me... I CAN'T BUILD THE HOME GARAGE GYM I DESPERA
  6. This photo is from 2018 and showed my entire Rubber Hex Dumbbell collection which ranged from 1 kg right up to 70 kg. Even I look back on this photo and think...WOW!!
  7. I'm looking into getting a Leg Curl / Leg Extension Attachment training device (pictured below) and Ironmaster is at the top of my list as I've previously purchased equipment from them in the past and I've NEVER been disappointed. This Leg Attachment (Pro version) on the Ironmaster UK website retails at £189.00 (GBP). Ironmaster.com retails the same device at $189.00 (US). The downside with buying something like this means I would also need to purchase an Ironmaster Pro Bench as the Leg Attachment Pro only fits the Pro Bench. Ironmaster.com retails the "Super Be
  8. I used to train in my garage until my gym equipment began rusting badly due to the lack of insulation. So I packed up all my equipment and moved everything into my house which is where I train now using half of my livingroom. This section will show photos and videos of how my gym used to look including some funny(ish) ones. More content will be added over time. But you can also check out my Instagram for more! Two photos from 2017 Can you spot me?
  9. My First Ever Garage Gym Workout In my new home. Looking back, I'm really glad I took a photo of this training log session, dated Mon 4, Nov, 2013. I've even included the duration of the workout lol. I had just recently purchased my house and was excited to clear the garage of spiders and start working out. I love how I've added notes at the bottom... "Buy a radio"....."Buy a mirror" ha ha. Brilliant. I eventually did. At that point in time, I had basic equipment, but it got the job done! Anyone else keep a training diary of past workouts? If you want to read more
  10. Decided to train today and test out my grip strength by lifting a 12" long dumbbell with a 3" custom thick grip handle by Watson. UK company Watson Gym provide amazing custom gym equipment which can be shipped World Wide! They're not the usual dumbbell handles you would buy out of Argos, or a typical fitness equipment shop. These handles by Watson are custom made on ordering, manufactured to my own needs. They can be made to various lengths and grip thickness. After I failed on my heaviest attempt I decided to experiment and repeat the process but instead using a longer (20 inches) d
