In this article, we are going to take a look at the advantages of building
muscle from home. We will cover how to set up an inexpensive home
gym as well as discuss what equipment you will need. And we will
take a look at which muscle groups are most important to exercise in
order to build muscle.
When you build muscle at home you gain many advantages over the
bodybuilders and fitness enthusiasts who trudge off to the gym every
day. One of the main advantages is the time you save by doing your
workout at home. You can do your workout in about the same time that
you would have to spend traveling to the gym and getting ready to
workout. You will not have to wait your turn to workout on a piece of
gym equipment during the busy times. By building your body at home
you can workout at your convenience.
Memberships at a gym can be expensive. If you build muscle at home,
then you do not have to pay those high monthly fees. The privacy you
have when you workout at your home is another advantage when
compared to doing your workout in a crowded gym. If you are self-conscious about your physique,
building muscle at home can simply be more comfortable.
Any open area in your home can serve as your workout space. I use an
open space in my computer room that is about six feet wide and twelve
feet long. I also use an area in the garage to do pullups. As you can see, a
fairly modest area will be just fine for most workout routines. If you have
an elaborate home gym you may need more space, but if you are using
basic equipment such as dumbbells and barbells most any clear area will
You will only need a few basic pieces of weight lifting equipment in
order to build muscle at home. I use dumbbells, barbells, resistance bands,
and an overhead beam in the garage. You could even build muscle without
any equipment by using your body weight as resistance. At the other end
of the spectrum, you could invest in one of the popular home gyms and
do a great variety of exercises.
In order to build muscle, I believe you should concentrate on the large
muscle groups. These large muscle groups include the chest and back,
the biceps and triceps, and the legs and gluteus muscles. Work these
muscles with heavy weight to exhaustion. I also like to add variety to my
workout routine. I do yoga to develop my entire body and core exercises
to strengthen my core muscles.
As you can see, there are many ways for you to build muscle at home.
We have looked at the many advantages working out at home holds
over traveling to a gym. We explored how much space you will need to
properly do your workout program. And we discussed exercises and
exercise equipment. Setting up a workout space at home is a great
choice for many of us. You can successfully build those muscles in the
comfort of your own home. I wish you good luck and good results.
