Hello, all. It's been a while since I posted here. My family and I are in the process of moving to another home nearly a 1,000 miles away. This is rough, dang. I hope I never have to do this again. At any rate, we're going to be in a new home that's big enough where will will be able to create our own gym. With COVID still lingering I've given up on commercial gyms. I haven't been able to work out since March. Ugh! I'm wondering if anyone has tile flooring in their house that they covered with rubber mats like you see in gyms on the floors. They can come pretty thick (3/4" or even more, if necessary) so I'm wondering if this would be sufficient. We don't have the tile down just yet. And to be honest, I'm actually wondering if it would be a bad idea to install it in the room that will serve as our gym. Some of the equipment we're looking to buy needs to be bolted/secured to the floor like a leg press and some cable type machines. We're going to go all out and create a pretty serious gym. Does anyone have experience with protecting their floors with thick rubber mats or is it not possible? I don't lift super heavy. I can dumbbell bench press 130lb dumbbells and usually try to be "gentle" when releasing them onto the ground. Ahem...okay, I do drop them but I don't throw them like quite a few guys do. I can only deadlift about 460 but when using bumper plates it's not as bad of an impact as it can be when using uncovered metal 45lb plates. Any input, guys?
