    Pretty sure I'm going to get one before the year is out. Probably not the lat attachment at the moment, but one with 700-1,000lb capacity

    I already have a cable-crossover machine with smith squat too, in addition to a free bench, and a Marcy bench with leg extension.

    I'm just trying to compile as much equipment as I can.

    Length by width it's decent size.... unfortunately the height is not.

    When we move again that's going to be a necessity, large basement with high ceiling.

    here's a shot of it....

    Dehumidifier, opening the windows, fans, and frequently cleaning the equipment with 409 helps.

    But yeah, sometimes there's a lovely odor lol

    It's a bit homoerotic, but it helps me envision how I want to look, good motivator. I've got the Governator on the other wall.

    I have the same problem, slim waste, large quadriceps/hammies. Couple that with the fact that I need 36 length inseam and finding jeans that fit is almost always a fruitless endeavor.

    I have a smith machine.

    I like the power rack but IDK what I would like better.

    With the smith I can do sissy squats, upright rows, calf raises, even leg presses.

    The only thing I like about this power rack is the pull-up bar.

    Now cable crossovers? That's something I REALLY wish I had.

    Power rack is a whole lot better than a smith. Advantage of the smith is the safety.

    Only advantage I see is for squats.

    Everything else I mean so long as you don't go full retard you should be able to manage the weight.
