I have saved up $500 to buy some equipment for my home gym. I am asking what you suggest to buy.
Here is a list of what I already have:
550lbs + in iron (no bumpers)
set of rings
rubber lifting platform
1, 20lbs dumbbell
1, 40lbs dumbbell
set of 3lbs, 5lbs, 10lbs dumbbells
2, medicine balls
homemade tire sled

2 sets of chains
I can get in all my training with that, no question. If you're looking for more info, just let me know. This is a slow growing process, and I'm in your exact shoes so I know how tough but excited you are about the situation.
Best of Luck!,
