Both get you stronger, but one form of training gets you stronger stronger where the other gets you bigger.

Ordered a set of wooden gymnastic rings and some bands today. Here we go $100 home gym. 

Currently doing the Bond training program 2x days a week in a real gym so getting proper deadlifts and squats there. Home gym will be for targeting the vanity stuff ie my non existing chest / shoulder / arms.

If I ask you to take a dump on my chest, will you?

Team America is still so relevant, I think it stands the test of time. If we're watching it now we'll definitely be watching it 15 years from now. 

I don't do workouts but I go to the climbing gym and it is way more fun.

Assuming you didn’t know this already, the Lindy Effect is one of the coolest things I’ve learned.

So I'm setting up a home gym.  Anyone know of any other haunts that sell used weights?  Specifically dumbbells.  (A pair of 150 pound dumbbells for $1200 CDN?  WTF.)

Kijiji, CL, FB Marketplace are the ones I know of.

Check Value Village, Sally Ann and other stores like that. Still have to be there at the right time but it is amazing what people drop there. Grabbed a couple of 5 pound Olympic plates someone gave away at the local Value Village.

Also check the Habitat for Humanity Re Use it stores. Again seen weight stuff there.
