How is having a home gym compared to going to a regular gym? Posted on May 3, 2023 by Anonymous How is having a home gym compared to going to a regular gym?
I'm thinking more and more about buying a homegym because I hate going to mine, it's always crowded and there's nothing left to use.
What should I need for a home gym? Rack/Bench/BB/ adjustable db and that's it no? I don't see what i can add, I should be able to do most exercise no?
A big mirror
Lol true i should get one to look at my forms during exercise
Might go for a plastic one so I don't break it accidentally
cable machine, and everything you listed.
Just checked, this shit is at least 600€
Way too expensive, I'm already at ~1200€ with everything I listed including weights
Its fucking wonderful. You can go whenever you want. You can flex and fuck around like you want. I often just browse IST and do sets for 3 hours, its cozy af. Also miring myself after every set in the mirror.
It's so much better than going to a commercial gym
>can work out wearing as little clothing as I want
>can listen to any music I want
>never have to wait for equipment to be free
>don't have to plan my entire day around going to the gym, I just get home and work out
Wtf I was not expecting that.
Its cheaper in the long run. But you also have less equipment, so it works best with a minimalist routine focused on barbell/calisthenic-style stuff rather than machines. Not having to commute to the gym is convenient, but personally I find that homegym workout sessions take longer since I'm more likely to goof off and do other things between sets rather than focusing on getting in and out.
Also a downside is you don't get to mog people at the gym.
>Its cheaper in the long run
Lol no. A gym membership costs $20 per month where I'm at.
Home gym doesnt Haß to cost more than 1k so after 4 years it's cheaper and iron lasts forever.
Do you only intend to exercise for the next few years?
>you are a gym
More convenient but it depends on your ideal home gym setup. I would start off with a minimalist home gym setup so you get an idea what you're expecting. Mine is a pull-up/dip tower, plates and a dip belt so for weighted calisthenics.
