Home Gym Ideas for Bodybuilding
I have spent the last 6 years working out at my home gym.
I belonged to commercials gyms before that but when my first child was born in became more convenient for me to workout at home.
Thus the need for some equipment to workout with.
From working out in commercial gyms for some 12 years, I had a good idea what I would need to get a good workout and build muscle at home.
A squat rack, along with a flat bench and some Olympic weights, was my first home gym purchase.
I believe everyone should have access to a squat rack whether it be at a commercial gym or at home. They are invaluable.
It not only provides the ability to do all the compound lifts, it allows for self spotting.
Over the years I have continued to add to my gym. Below are further additions to it.
The dip bars and bench were both purchased from Body Solid. They have been excellent additions to my gym.
The bench allows not only incline, flat, and decline positions, but also inclines straight up for supported seated dumbbell presses. It also has a leg extension/leg curl attachment.
I have had a treadmill for 6 years and is still working great. This is what I do my morning cardio on.
I purchased micro plates online a few years back and truly love them. They allow very small weight increases. They range from 1/4 lb to 1 lb.
These are a few of my lifting accessories. My lifting belt, my dip belt, and my APT lifting straps.
These are a few of the pictures I have hanging on the walls to motivate me. Everyone can use a little motivation from time to time.
I can say that I am happy with where my gym is at right now. It provides me everything I need to keep getting bigger and stronger.
