OK so with the bench and deadlift cage you can do chest, arms, back and legs; I guess abs too... How much weight do you have? Your goal is to tone and get in better shape; what do you do for cardio?

Calisthenics are a great way to mix it up and grow strong functional muscles. HiiT is High Intensity Interval Training. It helps with tone and shredding. Check it out.
