Essential home gyms thread.

Thoughts?

If you do L shaped pull ups, you can probably skip the ab roller.

        Usually those that expensive are those fancy blocks or they include some plates.

        Maybe its leafland that has fucked up prices

          That has a lot of plates included. Only the dumbbells would be like $20.

    Ab roller isn't essential. Regular ab calisthenics and weight incline setup on the bench is enough

    This is unironically all you need to get huge. Deadlifts are a meme and you can do everything else with this.

        Those aren't really that beneficial tbfh with you, you need deadlifts with a barbell to load them up real heavy like otherwise why deadlift when you get better results from squats and ohps with same weights.

          I can load mine with 40 kg each (4x10kg), empty dumbbells weigh 2kg, so that's 84kg total. I mean it's not as good as a barbell, that I admit, but if you work your way up to 20 reps, it's still quite decent. Especially considering dumbbell deadlift requires more ROM. Once you max out you can do one-legged deadlift for hamstrings and balance.

      Just buy some gymnastic rings, put them on the inside of the dumbbell, put on the plates and you'll have handels to do deadlifts, of course you can't go as heavy as with regular barbells but it's a fine substitute for a home gym

        Only if you are lazy and don't tighten them. I have a set that goes to 100 pounds per db. The rubber rings in the screwlocks still do a fine job of keeping friction which prevents them from moving, unless I am lazy and don't tighten them every couple sets. Even then, if they start to come loose they have to rotate many, many times for anything to come off the handle. So it's still pretty safe unless you're doing something really wacky. The set I bought even came with a backup set of rubber rings that I've never had to use, and I've had it for three or four years now.
        The problem is that this sort of thing costs twice what it did pre-pandemic. I paid a dollar per pound for my set, so just about 200 dollars. I see similar sets on Amazon right now (they're not the easiest thing to find, they all want you to buy even more expensive adjustable sets with lots of moving parts and less weight) for almost 400 dollars. I checked Amazon because that's where I bought my set, maybe other places have better prices.

              To prove that this one time 5 years ago I fell and hurt my knee doing pull ups was due to a design flaw on the equipment's part and not my 110kg fat ass? I'd rather you just think I'm fat.

      Stop suggesting power towers, what the fuck?

      Get suspension training. Either gymnastics rings or TRX. You just need a good place where to hang them or a screw and harness in a nice beam.

      The TRX thing you can even make yourself with some safety strap if you already have it

      Like I said in the OP, you can skip it. However, it's such an amazing tool for abs that if you can't do L-pullups and don't want to do situps, which suck balls, buying it is a bargain.

    And that's literally all you need.

    You can find a ton of ways to get into inclined position without le specific angle changing chair for 3000$.

    Bars can be found in abundance.... OUTSIDE JUST WALK OUT OF YOUR APARTMENT moron

    Abs don't even need to be trained but can be trained WITHOUT ANY FUCKING WHEELS IT'S CALLED LEG RAISES/SITUPS

    For DL just do single leg DL with dumbbells
    OR JUST FIND ANY HEAVY SHIT OUTSIDE AND LIFT IT

      I bought mine for $120.
      And having a stable support is essential to lift safely. It's very easy to slip and injure yourself with heavy dumbbells. Spend those shekels, garden gnome.

      >bars
      Where I live there are no bars or branches fit for pullups. There used to be in a playground, but some nog broke them so they removed them.
      Also, it's much more convenient to be able to just put up the bar in my own home instead of having to get dressed and leave the house. 5 seconds and I'm ready to go. They're like $15 on amazon, Moshe.

      >abs don't even need to be trained
      Post body.

      >leg raises/situps
      They suck major asshole. I hate doing them, and they take way too long. I get much better results with 3 minutes of ab wheel 3 times a week. That little bro is miraculous.

      Crunches are gay as fuck. Slow and boring. An ab roller is going to murder your abs in 2 minutes. You've never had abs doms until you've tried an ab roller.

      My set is actually 1.15", which is basically 3 cm. I would think the thicker the bar is, even if just by a little, the more it can hold. I've never loaded one of mine to more than 100 lbs for heavy single leg dls and lunges, but they seem to be holding up just fine.

    What do you think of pic-related for starters? I don't want to do bench or heavy squat since they could be potentially dangerous alone.

    The best advice I can give is just get olympic plates. It carries over to barbells and trap bars. Plus you can buy olympic sleeved dumbbells from Rouge or other places if you want those exercises. I have a lot of wasted space from having a 200lb set of standard and a 300lb set of olympic plates now

    The best bare bones home gym would be the trap bar and a pull-up/dip tower. The trap bar deadlift, pull-ups, and dips cover most of the major muscles in the body.
