5 Steps to Setting Up Your Home Gym

Fortunately, a home gym doesn’t have to require a lot of square footage or money. For less than the cost of a year-long gym membership, you can stock your space with all the equipment you need to get a great workout, shower, and cook dinner in the same amount of time it takes just to travel to and from the gym.

There’s no question about it: Working out at home with your own home gym equipment has some serious convenience benefits. There’s no need to account for travel time to and from the gym, you never have to pack a bag, and you can blast your go-to workout music.

Having some equipment at your disposal gives you more exercise options, allows you to add resistance as you get stronger, and gives your workouts more variety, so you (and your muscles) won’t get bored of the same old, same old routine.

Of course, gyms generally have a leg up on equipment, and it’s not exactly cheap to stock your home setting with all of those bells and whistles. That said, there’s a lot you can do with just a few cost-effective pieces of home gym equipment.

Here’s how to do it.

Bowflex SelectTech 552 Adjustable Dumbbells – Excellent Design!

There is no better way to begin the dumbbell experience than to start with the Bowflex SelectTech 552 Adjustable Dumbbells. These dumbbells had been one of the top-selling dumbbells since their release back in 2013. It is perfect for the ultimate strength training because of it’s adjustable weight level.

The 552’s offer a reasonably wide weight range. You are starting from as little as 5 lbs to as much as 52.5 lbs (per dumbbell). There are 15 different weight settings to choose from. What’s nice about the SelectTech 552’s is that you can adjust weight in 2.5 lb increments for the first 25 lbs (once you get to 25 lbs, it moves up in 5 lb increments).

For most people, trying to increase weight in more significant increments (like 5 or 10 lbs at a time) is too difficult for your muscles to do. So, you struggle with keeping good form and can’t complete your reps, which means you don’t build strength as well.

Fortunately, because the SelectTech 552’s can adjust in such small increments, you can increase weight at a more steady pace. This allows you to keep perfect form, get your full rep range, and gain strength faster and easier.
