Are you tired of driving back and forth to the gym just to get a workout? Are you looking to set up your own home gym? If the answer is yes, you have clicked on the right article. In this article, I will show you how to set up your personal gym, e.g which equipment to buy in order to make it a gym. Here are my suggestions.
Weight plates and barbell
The exercise combination with this device is endless and, therefore, deserves a first place in my list. You should buy 3 to 5 sets of different weights in case you get stronger. You should also look for a rubber coated, hexagon shaped dumbbell as it will prevent the dumbbells from rolling around and prevent any damage to the floor if you accidentally drop them.
Of course you will need something to attach those plate to and hence, the barbell. You should buy a sturdy one, preferably Olympic standard as this will train you the most. You should also buy a barbell with a diameter suitable for your hands so that you can hold it more easily.
A versatile piece of equipment. With this piece of equipment, you can combine it with many types exercise, from weightlifting, parallel bar to even pull up. Besides, it will be of great help when you want to practice heavier weightlifting or leg exercises since there are no one to help you when you are training at home.
A device great more a diverse range of exercise. You could use it for ab training, weight training or even attach a pull up bar to it and many more. You could choose from the list of the best weight benches on the market or you could just buy used one for economic purpose.
A jumping rope
This thing will give you a hell of a cardio workout with all the up and down motion. It also works on your coordination as well. If you are new to this form of exercise, any type of rope will do just fine. If you are more advanced, get a light weight rope to train your speed and a heavier one to train your power.
A fun and very effective exercise. Rebounding on a trampoline will seriously train your body balance and coordination as you will need to use all body parts to stay standing on a trampoline. It will also train the muscle area from your stomach down to your feet
A stereo system
It does nothing directly but it helps keep you going for longer. Research shows that with the right music playing in the background, you will train much more effectively and much longer as well. This is because your heart will beat to the rhythm of the music in play.
That should be everything you are going to need in my opinion. If you have anything more to add, please leave a comment below. Thank you for reading this.
