I can understand if you think BFR looks stupid and why you would not like to use it, but it's not dangerous if you are careful the first times. Its effectiveness is pretty much proven at this point.
You actually can get jacked legs.

I'm honestly fine doing those hex bar thingys and lunges. I tried doing leg raises etc, but machines feel weird.

I just need to get things in 1-2x a week.

I do chest work 2x wk and tri stuff atleast 2x a wk one session of which is cgbp. Doing flat bench bb, db, and 2x cgbp feels a bit much.

Propane heater for starter's isn't worth it.

I already have flooring (recycled rubber gym flooring).
The main issue is picking up a dumbells and barbells that are frozen. 
If you live somewhere with a mild winter then fine, if it never/rarely gets below freezing then you can train year round in the garage, if you're dealing with northeast winters then you find another way to train in the winter.
I agree.
I had a heater last yr in the garage. I did not open door because it leaks air anyways. A little bit ago I insulate my garage, but not the door. When considering lifting in the garage I was going to seal up the door entirely. I was even considering getting some electric heaters, running 220V lines, or getting some infrared heaters, but ultimately decided it wasn't worth it because the bar would be freezing. Yes, I can bring the bar in, and keep it inside, etc etc, but it's just such a pain. now I can go in the basement and train whenever without bothering about heat. If the boilers are going (which they have been because #winter) it's warm in there for shirtless training. Yesterday I was on my bike in boxers sweating.

You're not thinking about the right kinda heaters. 0-20f is no problem. You get an overpowered heater that blows the garage up in 5 minutes.

Yeah, I am.

It's not worth it, that's what I am saying.

There are multiple ways to make it work but none of them are worth it unless your garage is a dedicated area for your gym, in which case the best option is insulating it, putting ductwork from your heating out there and taking out the garage door so you can seal it. Basically making it another interior room.

All of the other shit - like heaters - are pointless if you use that area for anything other than working out.

Now you're just finding insane problems with simple solutions. Do you tend to over complicate? Because none of that shit is necessary/
post #49179 of 57266

I don't know what you're garage situation is like, but for me a heater isn't going to do shit unless it's a few of those torpedo heaters, which, again, I'm not paying for multiple heaters plus fuel and dealing with storage when i can spend $300 on a short squat rack and put it in the basement.

wish i had a goddamn garage
post #49181 of 57266
Yea same. Planning on buying a house next year, lots of places here don't have garages but I hope I can find one. Not even interested in turning it into a gym, just want a place to park my car and build shit.
post #49182 of 57266
Yea if you are up north garage training is no go

Plus I would still like to be able to use my garage to work on my cars/bikes and shit.

I really envy you up north guys though. Down here nobody does basements because of the water table. Few houses I've seen with basements here need foundation work frown.gif Growing up in the NE we always had basements. I def miss them. Best you can hope for up here is a bonus room in the attic.
