Home gyms have now become a significant part of exercise programs. A gym at home gives you a chance to exercise in the worst weather, and without the worry of having to wait for your turn to use a machine. Home gym equipment has improved drastically over the last few years. Today, a wide range is available, ranging from the traditional weight bench to the multi-station gym. To set up a gym at home, you should start by purchasing the right equipment.
For your home gym to be effective, the following are serious: an apt area of space; A seven-foot barbell; A power rack; A strong bench; Cast iron weights; A calf block; Dipping bars; Chinning bars; And a pair of dumbbells.
A 7 x 10 feet area is perfect for a home gym. It is not mandatory to purchase everything that a public gym has; Most of those machines go unused anyway. The abovementioned requirements should suffice for a home gym. The power rack is an absolute must, a necessity for such exercises as the squat and the bench press. Chinning and dipping bars generally come with the power rack. Also essential are cast iron weights and a seven-foot barbell. Standard bars and weights should suffice; Still, if money allows, there is no harm in going for Olympic weights and bars. A strong bench is essential for bench pressing; So are adjustable dumbbells and a calf block.
Setting up a great home gym is a one off payment and may seem exorbitant initially. However, in purchasing the equipment you would probably be parting with as much cash as you would for a year's usage of a public gym. Furthermore, the exercise equipment is yours for life.
