Sometime and decided to try to just work out at home for easability sake and I find I’m more likely to work out if I can just head down stairs. I have select-tech weights, allowing the weight range from 10-52.5 lbs, an adjustable incline bench and a treadmill.
My quesiton is, how can I maintain my strength and muscle gains, with out the wide range of equipment to mix up my routines. I’m about 215, in pretty good shape and have good strength. I just want to gain more lean muscle and trim my body fat.
I do have a question. I really did get alot of information from your books. That is why I wanted to purchase them. My question is, I am not currently involved in a fitness gym.
I have no weights at home at this time ( I do plan on purchasing some ). My goal is to lose weight and get fit, period. My question is how can I do want I want to do if I have no access to a gym or mainly the money, and then what can I do right now with no weights at home? Any advise you have will be definially helpful to me. Like I said before I looked over the book and it had alot of information and I liked it. But alot of it delt with being in a gym or at least having weights. So any information you have I will use until I can purchase some weights. I am just ready to get started and I don’t know where to start or how to get started.
Thank-you for your time,
While this is a multi-part question the answer remains the same.
#1 Priority is nutrition
You can burn quite a lot of fat, and keep lean by eating the right foods. And you’ll know what these foods are by listening to this podcast, reading the Top 12 Beginner’s Mistakes eReport and of course, if you’ve read the Beginner’s Guide to Fitness and Bodybuilding.
However, your second priority should be to focus on body weight exercises. A quick Google search will reveal some super sites that show you how to do pull ups using a door in your house, pushups, crunches, various cardio exercises, workouts for legs and push-ups variations.
If your goal is to get BIG! Well free weights and the variety of machines where you can overload the muscles is still a requirement.
But if your goal is to get muscular and lean. Fit and flexible, you can do quite well by eating correctly and knowing how to handle your body weight thru various exercises.
Keep in mind that just becuase you do not have a gym or access to equipement doesn’t mean you can’t be creative to do all kinds of exercises with your own weight.
- sissy squats
- calf raises
- tricep dips between chairs
There’s a lof of exercises you can do without a gym, and without any equipment other then your own body!
Do a quick Google search for “body weight exercises” and you’ll be amazed at how much you can do.
