    This is mine, it's an unfinished room in my basement. We call it "The Manmaker". Ladies are welcome too.

    Him and his three year old sister both have a 2kg Kettlebell which keeps them entertained whilst I'm training usually

    Love this thread. The “Anti Man-Cave” - a space for work and becoming a better man, not play and leisure to revert to boyhood.

    Nice! Is that a home made pull up bar? I've been looking to get a freestanding one like that, but everything I see online has bits and pieces dangling off it.

    Hello Augustus,

    This is the link to the pull up stand : Elite XL Freestanding Pullup Bar

    I personally love it. It's able to be adjusted down, so you can do australian pull-ups. It's extremely lightweight as well. They also offer an option to get a seperate bar that has neutral grip handles and can double as a dip station.

    I don't think the bar would be good for anything kipping or anything explosive like muscle ups. I have seen people weigh the base down though and be able to do muscle ups but I wouldn't recommend it.

    Let me know if you want more pics or if you have any other questions.

    This is my courage corner, from 6 am to 7 am. Then it transforms to the building swimming pool. Brand new 24 and 32 KB, and a home made 19 kg KB I used before. Still very modest, but it's letting me progress to Simple.

    Not pictured is about 600lbs in standard plates, steel bar and horse shoes for bending, hammers and a mace for swinging, a battlerope for breathing and an isometric device.

    I am inspired by @Geoff Chafe to organize a but instead of throwing everything in dufflebags where I have to dig for it.

    @Sauli, I can't really argue with you. We put an addition on our house almost 20 years ago, and I asked for a basement with 9 foot ceilings to the bottom of the rafters. It's a great space.

    That’s a lot of iron. Cinder blocks just for bada** factor, or do you swing those around?

    Trying to figure out where to fit a barbell and some plates ...

    Store the bar vertically. Lean the plates up against the wall.

    The only option I guess and sufficient. Always thought I needed rack or squat stand as well. Just read a couple days ago that PTTP, and of course DDD, does not require one at all ... The 2x2m of space would also be fine if I place the bar diagonal? Would that be okay, @Steve Freides?
