5. Power Cage
If you are looking to up your weight game than having a Power Cage is essential. There are plenty of different styles and versions out there but the main reason this was on our team was the pure functionality in most of these Power cages ( and the ability to add on later ). This is why our team chose to leave a Squat racks off this list. if your in the market for a squat rack; your better off just getting a reasonably price Power Cage. you have all the main functions of a squat rack plus more! From performing weighted squats, pull ups, dips, leg raises, etc.. most Power Cages are exactly that; "A Cage to build Power"..
6. Power Tower
Even though we didn't put Squat Racks on the List does not mean that Power Towers are not. Like the Power Cage the are highly functional and versatile. for pullups, chinups, dips, and all the other exercises you can pull off from a hanging position. Should support up to 400 pounds.
7. Adjustable Bench
This goes without saying but you can really bench press without a bench let alone other exercises. Which is why having a versatile adjustable bench is another essential
8. Barbell & Plates
Again, it will be rather difficult to perform bench presses, squats, dead lifts etc without a barbell and some plates. So they will most definitely come in handy. ( Hint: Bench press, Squats, and dead lifts are foundational strength training workouts that increase power and explosion) .
9. Massage Gun
Speed up your Recovery in between workouts through muscle stimulation. Having a massage gun will help with just that.
10. Heavy Bag
If outdoor cardio isn’t your thing, this heavy punching bag is a great alternative for incinerating fat while building explosive power and speed. With the included gloves and wraps, you’ll be ready to rumble right away.

13. Resistance Bands
Having a set of a resistance bands nowadays is a must for any gym. They're versatility and functionality makes it why we feel every home gym should be equipped with them. if they're good enough fro pro athletes then they're good enough for me.
