Hey there! Today I thought I’d share a few great strength training ideas in honor of my home gym coming together!
Yesterday Adam ordered a power cage (with pulley) . He got a great deal – it’s on sale for under $400 with free shipping! We also went to Dicks and got a barbell and weight set since it’s also currently on sale. If you’re looking, now seems like the time to buy!
Okay, now onto the workouts!
None of these require expensive gym equipment. If you have some dumbbells and a stability ball at home you’ll be all set! If you don’t have dumbbells you can pick up a set at any sporting goods store or even Target. If you need a stability ball you can find them almost anywhere too – this is the one I have. You can also do a lot of these without any equipment at all!
Can also be done with dumbbells or a plate.
Complete 30 reps of each exercise with a 30 second rest in between. Do 3-5 reps depending on comfort level.
