Building a Home Gym Version 2.0

In part 1 (Building a Home Gym Version 1.0), I showed the initial home gym that I created.  This gym worked out well for a while, but over time I need to upgrade my equipment to support my workouts.  Below are some of the upgrades that I made in version 2.0.

Version 2.0

In the first version of my gym, my equipment was crammed into a storage room in our basement.  This made me claustrophobic and did not give me much space to do various workouts.  So I decided to relocate everything stored in the room and create a dedicated space for the gym.

The first step was to clear out the room and apply Drylok Masonry Waterproofer to the walls.

I then put down foam tiles over the concrete.

I then added an 80 lb Everlast Heavybag that I found on craigslist for $15.

These were some great improvements.  I now had a dedicated place to workout with some space for things like P90X, yoga, etc. The heavy bag was a great addition to add some cardio at the end of my strength training workouts.  But I was not satisfied.  Stay turned for Version 3.0!
