Gotta have the Wolverine back in shape, so finally, after almost 1 month and a half of waiting, here they are:





...and I am proud to say that I have assembled them myself!! With these two babies, the barbell, weights and a neoprene carpet, I can get myself back into shape. I have lost about 4 kilos in the last 3 months because I haven't done any power lifting. But it was worth the effort - now I got my own gym biggrin.gif

Thanks Ben! Well, initially, I wanted to have both in one room but unfortunately the gym has a ceiling which is too low for being used as a Ken Jutsu dojo, so I will train in my apartment, which is tall enough and spacy in the living room for that.

He'll have to do it the hard way.. clean the bar from the floor first and then put it into position. I used to have to do that and I hated it ! tongue.gif

It's all in you mate biggrin.gif But you have to want to do it! I was wasting about 10-12 hrs a week on going to the gym, training and then coming back, so I thought it would be a great thing to use the unused space in my house and turn it into a place like that biggrin.gif

Uh-oh the squats ... well I know the Bulgarian Squats which don't necessarily need a rack biggrin.gif and they are bloody efficient!

Yeah, for some, the gym is more of a motivation but others spend so much time standing around, chatting and not being focused. They always say, go to the gym, spend the least amount of time there and get the most done smile.gif

Indeed! Well, now that I have it in my home, I can easily schedule intensive 45 minute sessions each morning to get the blood pumping for the whole day! I never was the chit-chatter type at the gym anyway, as i was always eager to finish the training in good time so I can get back to other things I had to do, but yeah, there's A LOT of people coming to the gym to socialize, rather than pump iron laugh.gif

Quite frankly, I'm not particularly interested in standing around, talking to other sweaty guys... I'm there to work biggrin.gif
