In this article I discuss how to build your home gym from scratch and what you ‘really’ need to get great fat loss results at home. The three essential pieces of training equipment needed to get great fat loss results at home are revealed. You may be pleasantly surprised at what fitness equipment is actually needed to forge a dream physique in your very own home gym.
Today I’m talking about a topic that is near and dear to my heart and that is home gym training and really, what is the minimal amount of equipment you need in your home gym to actually burn fat?
Literally, the minimal equipment you need is simply nothing. You can burn body fat and even gain some muscle by doing nothing but body weight exercises only in your – well, it doesn’t even have to be a home gym, it can be the corner or your living room. Literally, you don’t need anything to get started especially a lot of beginning exercises that I do, people spend a lot of time on the floor doing beginner exercises without any equipment.
From there, you’d probably be best if you graduated to getting an exercise ball. I think they’re very, very cheap, You can get one pretty much anywhere. You may spend about $20 or less on one and its probably a good idea of what you might spend, and then that’s where a beginner will move into some more advanced exercises especially for the back of the legs, which are hard to train without any equipment.
For people that are a little more advanced, like even an intermediate, a simple adjustable dumbbell set that you can get from a second-hand sports store along with a bench, it can allow you to do dozens more exercises and literally you could stop there. If you are a little more advanced in your strength training, the next thing I would add is a pull-up bar or chin-up bar that you can place somewhere in your house and maybe even outside. That would be the piece de resistance to the home gym set-up would be having the pull-up bar, but again that would only be for certain people that are strong enough to do those exercises.
At a minimum, I like to see people having the bench, the ball, and the dumbbells because that allows you to do 95% of the exercises in my program. If you have a chin-up bar, then you can do the pull-ups, chin-ups, and even some inverted rows in addition, but if you don’t have the bar you can always sub in plenty of dumbbell exercises in place. That’s what I like to see people have. Again, it doesn’t cost a lot of money because you can get a lot of this stuff at a second-hand sports store, it doesn’t take up a lot of room because you can just store a very small amount especially if you get adjustable dumbbells and that’s it. You can literally have a cover model body with that minimal equipment.
That is the whole premise of what I have been telling people for years when it comes to deciding what home gym equipment to get, stay minimalist. I definitely have minimalist approach too. Stay minimalist and focused on body weight exercises and those big compound core movements that you don’t need fancy equipment for. That minimalist-approach will give you that cover model body if you work the program. Follow a good training program, get your nutrition dialed in, and you just stick with it while constantly monitoring your results. This is a fabulous approach and actually your body will work better than if you try to go to a traditional fitness center and use a lot of fancy isolation machines.
The free weights and the body weight movements will actually work out better for you and just train you in so many better ways than that fancy equipment will and you’ll save a heck of a lot of money too. This is what is truly required for successful fat loss training at home.
