Being fit used to be just a hobby, but now it has become a lifestyle to millions of people. However, not everyone has the time to go to a gym three to five times each week. The idea of a gym at home sounds great, right? Well, it is easier than you think to make one. All you need is a spare room or the garage and some equipment.
You cannot have a gym without Dumbbells. The amount of exercises you can do with them is endless and they will justify the expense immediately. Purchase a set of adjustable dumbbells as they don’t take up much space and you can adjust the weight in case you feel stronger.
Pull Up Bar
Remember that kid in middle school who could not do a single pull up? Well, he could have used a pull up bar! Before you purchase one, look around and see if you are actually able to install one in your home gym setting.
Another item on our list, which any home gym should definitely be equipped with, is the barbell. Try not to go too cheap on a Barbell, as it needs to hold a lot of weight, also take into consideration the diameter of the bar. You should be able to grab comfortably on the bar so you do not hurt your wrist or worst, drop the barbell.
Bonus tip: if you are going to take working out with weights seriously, ensure you invest in a groin strap.
There are a lot of exercises that can be done on a Plyo Box and many more which can be made more difficult with one of these. Professional ones are recommended as they can support your entire weight and a lot more and they have a non-slippery surface. However, if you have what it needs to make one, go ahead! Anything that can support you jumping on it would do just fine!
Each of us has played with a jumping rope at least once. Well, it turns out people are using it for exercise, and it is great for cardio! Any rope that you can grab comfortably on to will do just fine. If you want to step it up a bit get something lightweight to speed things up or even a weighted rope to work on your strength.
Not necessarily a sub woofer, but something to play music on, because you need blast some tunes when working out to keep a rhythm!
