As I’ve been illustrating for a past few years through this website, working out at home is not that difficult when you have the right knowledge, resources, guidance and equipment. The following is a basic guide to grabbing everything you need if your goal is to workout in the comfort or your own home:
The $0 Budget - Bodyweight Basics
If you have absolutely no money to workout, then you can get started with basic pushups, pullups, and squats. For pullups, since you don’t have money to purchase a pullup bar, then I suggest you find a place to do pullups, such as a playground.
The $50 Budget – Workout Without Weights
A good pull up bar costs around $20-30. In fact, I recently came across these Portable Pullup Handles that you can use and literally do pullups anywhere. These are handles, not the big bulky bars. This way, if you’re going on vacation, you can put the handles in your bag, and slip them over a door to performpullups. So, thats the first thing you should grab.
With the remainder $20, my suggestion is to purchase Coach Eddie Lomax’s “Workout Without Weights.” This basic guide gives you close to 200 high intensity bodyweight exercises, plus over a dozen templates you can use to create your own workouts in a matter of seconds.
The $100 Budget – High Quality Workouts
Now that you have a little extra money in your budget, you can afford the Workout Without Weights Combo Package, which includes Ultimate Gymless Workout. Ultimate Gymless Workout is a 6-Month Bodyweight Training program which helps you easily improve your strength, and allows you to burn fat using just bodyweight exercises.
With your pullup bar and Combo Package, you’ll still have $20 left over. You actually have everything you need for a great bodyweight training program. However, if you’d like to, you can purchase one of those push-up stands. These stands allow you to performpushups without placing undue pressure on your wrists.
The $200 Budget – Bring on the Weights
You will eventually need to grab some free weights in order to take your fitness to the next level. Dumbbells are the best choice. You can grab a pair of adjustable dumbbells for under $100. Cheapest ones are at your local sporting goods store such asModells, Dicks, or Sports Authority.
In addition, I suggest you a grab a dumbbell training guide. The best dumbbell training guide on the market is written by Coach EddieLomax, titled Superior Dumbbell Workout. This ebook features the best dumbbell exercises along with progression techniques to help you designed incredible training programs.
The $400 Budget – Ultimate Home Gym
As I was writing this, I realized that most individuals spend $400 per year on a gym membership. That’s $400 each year, every year, for….pretty much ever. Instead, you can spend $400 at once, and have all the tools you’ll ever need to get into incredible shape without paying anything extra, ever again!
So lets quickly recap all the products I recommended to you to build your home gym:
Wow, that’s turned out to be cheaper than I thought. You can actually afford to spend another $20-30 and upgrade to the Superior Dumbbell Workout Combo Package. This package features Coach Lomax’s Gladiator Body Workout and Extreme Dumbbell Fitness programs.
So, know you have an extra $200 to spend. What can you grab to make your home gym even better? My suggestion is to grab a barbell set. I was able to grab a 300lb barbell set for around $150 atModells. There was a sale going on at the time.
Look out for promotions, and grab the weights when the price is right.
Once you’ve grabbed your Barbell Set, there is one last Coach Lomax product you should grab. It’s called the Athletic Body Workout and is an eBook teaching you how to combine Bodyweight, Dumbbell, and Barbell exercises for extremely intense athletic workouts.
