hahaha! You even have room to take a picture. I'd need a strong fisheye lens to do that. Or go outside and take a pic looking in. Below is my gym. Just a shed barely large enough to contain the rack. Loading plates is difficult because I can't get next to the bar.

Before anyone comments (not that this toppic is overrun with comments...): no, those plants aren't weed. In fact they are something much better: all kinds of different tomatos, peppers and chilis. Grin

You read in my mind, I tought it was weed...

Anyhow you have nice plates: I keep mines because I purchased them in 1991, when I started lifting weights.

By the way, where are you from PH? I'm from the north of Italy.

I think this topic is not overrun with comments because I think most of the people here train in a gym, and maybe those who don't are a little bit shy to post pics.

On a side note: I do not have anything to warm the room because it's not in my house, so this winter it went near zero degrees (celsius) and in summer it's well over 30...only the brave  Wink

I'm from Holland. Which also explains why I don't have to grow weed myself. Smiley

Indeed, only the brave! As can be seen from the pic, my shed's roof is transparent. Last week saw the greatest temperature difference inside yet measured: 34 degrees on Monday, 10 on Thursday. Just when you get used to one, it changes dramatically. Sad The plus side: I do get a lot of fresh air. I used to train in a basement, which was cooler, but I couldn't breathe because it was so stuffy.

BTW: I know the rack looks a bit crappy. I actually already have the metal for a better one (the dark bars in the far corner), but I keep forgetting to weld it. But that's what I like about training at home: the challenge.
