Home GymBuuuurrrrnnnnn! Can you feel it? Thats what my biceps feel like right now, and i haven’t even been to the gym. I decided, that instead of paying $50 a month to go to they gym and que to use a sweaty piece of equipment, i would just buy a home Gym. To some, this may seem a bit extreme, but actually, it’s really quite cheap, and you can use the equipment whenever you want, even at 3am.
So what are the advantages of having your own home gym?
- No queuing for equipment
- Works out as cheaper than a Gym membership
- You can use it whenever you please
- Can fit in your bedroom. Killer Abs whilst watching Family guy anyone?
- Other benefits which i will mention in the article.
To get the same results as you would by going to they Gym, you are going to need more than one bit of equipment. You’re going to have to train legs, upper and lower body, and maybe even do some cardio if you’re into that. Of course, i always say that when it comes to doing cardio, the world is your Gym.
Whatever you do, do not buy an “Entire Home Gym” as it will set you back thousands. By individual pieces that work and only buy what you need, and what you will use. The first thing that i bought, were adjustable dumbbells.
Bowflex SelectTech 552 Adjustable Dumbbells
They are essential to working out, and take up very little space. Because you can add and remove the sections, there are over 80 weight variations to these dumbbells, so its like having an entire rack of dumbbells, like in the gym, but for a fraction of the price and strength. You can start off small and increase the weight as you go along and get fitter by adding the segments onto the adjustable dumbbells. Im not going to write a full blown review for these, as you can see over 800 reviews on Amazon here, so it would be a waste of my time and yours.With free Dumbbells, you can train almost any part of your body. You can do squats, biceps, triceps, calf raise, and weighted sit ups. They also only cost $240 and of course will come with free shipping.
Its commonly known that free weights provide more value to your workout, by “silently” training your core, and other muscle groups, because you need to support yourself when doing the lifts. I like it this way because you start seeing muscles popping up in places you didnt even know you were training. Its all good for getting that ripped look. But you still need one more piece of equipment in your home Gym. The weight bench.
Cap Barbell Fitness FID Bench
The Cap barbell Fitness FID bench is perfect for home gyms, as its only $50 and can be flat, incline, decline AND upright. Its suitable for just about any weightlifting technique and has been purchased over 500 times on Amazon. Its a bit of an American favorite. Its cheap and it works. You can set this up in your bedroom or a spare room and its all you really need for working out at home. This particular home workout bench has been sold more than 400 times on Amazon, and it has rave reviews. Because it has the bars to put your feet under, you can take a plate from your adjustable dumbbells and give your Abs a killer workout.
Because average monthly gym membership costs are so high, you would be waaay better off just buying the equipment yourself and saving yourself costs. You never have to wait for equipment to do your sets, and you can go at whatever time you like. Please, if you have any comments, questions or anything else, comment below and i WILL reply!
