Yeah I like powertec as well, jonson...but, no, maybe not available at the bottom of the world.

I looked around, Hits, and it was damned hard to find much availabe in Australia..I mean, I'm assuming the international shipping would kill you. I did find a few things I'll link in a bit that would work quite nicely though.

Another good, reasonable priced make is Body Solid, maybe Body Solid is avaliable in aus?
I have a Body solid comercial squat rack, which is a good solid piece of equipment, might be worth a look.

Yeah, that was one of my suggestions too! I have some body-solid equip and it is very good. Sturdy. Etc...

Yeah, they are available but the only reasonably priced one is the half-rack which is one of these two links..I use a half-rack and it's suited my fine, btw..but my ceiling is low. I'd rather have a power cage if I could but it's not NEEDED.

But the first is a power cage and it looks good to me. They got some benches to link to on that page...

And they have a powertec rack here a bit more expensive:

And I want one of these:

DE Bench Day

Had a sweet day today, speed was great at 50%, really flying off the chest.Tried the CG 3 board next but with no one home to spot or hold the board is was too hard to do so I did some heavy JM presses.I will do something similiar next week maybe a cg 2 board floor press, that should be a similiar movement .HORSE does that sound like a plan?.Finished with some tate presses and Hammer grip pulldowns.Great pump.

DE Bench Day 11/10/08
Bench @ 50% 50kg 10x2
JM Press 4x5 30, 32.5kg
Tate Press 3x15 12.5kg
HG Pulldowns 3x 8,6,6 115kg 1x8 80kg

Certainly could. Any grip for 1-2 boards would work great. I personally just keep it simple and use a medium grip for everything. That's usually the second grip during your speed sets. I like maybe 2 finger widths away from the smooth, which for someone with my girth IS a closegrip LOL. I prefer it that way because I hate using many different ME lifts for upper body. So I can progress steadily with a closegrip (which makes you a stronger bencher w/ the additional triceps work), then if I stall out, I have the option of moving my hands out a bit more for brand new records. Just don't forget to record every PR and with what grip. I have tons of notes depending on a lot of things. Today's max effort for me I recorded the hole, grip, what bench I used, as well as exactly which hole the back was adjusted to.
