I’m sure that it is not just me because everyone else who goes to the gym experience this. Going to the gym is not that pleasant. Before going to the gym, we have to shove gym clothes in the gym bag. Dig out your gym card. Then we go to our locker and change our clothes. Wait for the machine to be vacant.
An easy way to exercise is to do it at the comfort of our home. We can just grab our shorts, pick the dumbbells and start our workout.
Which do you think is more pleasant? Doing strength training is simpler at home than going to the gym. But is that really a good option? Maybe, working out at home is not ideal if you are one of the hopefuls who will represent your country in the Olympics. However, if your just like everybody, this can be save time, gas, energy, gym fees, and frustration.
The first thing that you will need is little space and a mat. You can watch DVDs or online videos so that you can learn home workouts.
The longer you exercise, the more you will want some equipment. You can start with resistance bands or tubes since they are effective, light and compact. When purchasing resistance bands, remember the darker it gets, the stronger the resistance.
As you move on, you will need dumbbells to up your routine. They are sold as sets. As you notice that your strength increases, you will need more dumbbells. However, that will be a problem since they take too much space.
The Bowflex SelectTech 552 dumbbells or their bigger brothers the Bowflex SelectTech 1090s can help you out with your problem. They have many weight options as at least 15 pairs of regular dumbbells. In just 20 seconds, you can switch to any weight you want. Most nonprofessionals are going to need one set for all their weight training for the rest of their lives.
If you need larger weight range to train, you will need barbell, but they need extra space and are expensive, aside from being dangerous. It is hard to control as it gets loose easily.
Incline/decline bench also needed to use the barbells most safely.
Some people feel the need to buy home exercise machines. They can help you if you have the space for them. Do not also forget, that they are expensive. If you have the money and the space, consider finding a home trial option to be sure it fits your space and personality. The maintenance cost is not a joke since they will need special maintenance. If the store has these options, then get them, as well.
