New Titan bumper plates are here! mikew 2 1 yearwannabemuscular (33216): Ahhh, jealous!
Noise: Home Gym DL w/ Rubber Bumper plates mikew 2 1 yearwannabemuscular (33216): Looks good @mikew. You seemed to put it down hard and it wasn't too loud at all. Is that just carpet on concrete? I know you plan to build a platform, but will you leave the carpet over the rest of the area? My basement gym room is very tight carpet on concrete and I like it.
Bumper Plates - Rogue Alternatives mikew 15 2 yearsmikew (11493): @wannabemuscular yes! I need to document everything from top to bottom and explain strategies for buying/financing the equipment. Even picking out the right collars is challenging because there is a maze of choices ranging from $10 to $50 to much higher for calibrated/competition collars. The top contenders are these bad boys from Amazon: Quick Release Pair of Locking 2" Olympic Size Barbell Clamp Collar Great for Pro Training by...
Trap bar Hambo 3 2 yearsmikew (11493): @Hambo your question makes no sense. Why not just poke around the web? It appears that the terms are used interchangeably. Here is a video of a Trap Bar *and* a Hex Bar... it's a Hex Trap bar:
Rogue Bumper Plates - Cost Analysis mikew 6 2 yearsmikew (11493): @wannabemuscular I much prefer metal/steel plates... the look, the feel, the even the sound. You're right that a good set will last forever. I would definitely choose metal/steel over bumper if I could. But in this case, I'm compelled to go with rubber/bumper plates to limit/reduce noise. I watched a ton of YouTube videos last night and the loud metal clang was too much versus a duller thud. The metal/steel plates are less expensive but would...

A Dream~ Gen's Log TimmothyGen Jump to first page145Jump to last page 4 yearswannabemuscular (33216): Don't worry bout the numbers. It'll come back quick now that you're eating more again. Don't worry about a little fat around your stomach. You're in your prime years now for growth. Don't waste it. Eat and lift and get good rest. Just keep looking forward. :)

power cage Hambo 10 4 yearsSOLARSUPLEX (8314): you can do jumping jacks
Can you workout ith just a barbell? foreverbulking 3 4 yearsjja0016 (829): you could use it for biceps and triceps easily. for chest I would just do push ups shoulders I would burn out with military press after push ups. back you could hold it pointing behind and in front of you and do 1 arm rows. for legs you could do 1 leg lunges with the bar on your back
Cutting while only doing body weight workout As4do6 5 4 yearsAs4do6 (37): If each session of training I'll do the maximum. More sets , harder angels , more difficult exercises. Will it be enough for "overload"? I just managed to do my first hand stand - push up a week ago. Don't want to lose it up already ^^
Gym with limited Equipment nine0seven 3 4 yearsFrostshock (13324): no DBs that go to a high weight πŸ˜– @nine0seven shit what did you do get a job at Planet Fitness or Muscle Auschwitz? Honestly I would just bite the bullet and only use the smith for squats/bench and use the machines/cables/dumbbells creatively for accessory work.
gym closed down, now what? forgottenpass 24 4 yearsSalokin (877): Pounds of fat??? If you ate 7,000 calories over maintenance than theoretically you could gain 2 pounds of fat in one day. (yes, 7,000 cals is the actual figure) You can easily weigh 3-5lbs more one day than the day before. Carbs hold water, salt holds water, water=weight. You do NOT gain pounds of fat by over-eating 1 day unless you are a fat pig that ate thousands upon thousands of calories.
Fitness Sanctum simeonrice 1 4 yearssimeonrice (1): Has anyone heard of them? I found out about them on Facebook through a friend and I gave them a quick look as I was interested in stocking my new home gym. They seem to have a lot of cool workout equipment that lets you train at home or outdoors or whatever. Plus they have some really neat workout apparel. Check them out if you wish. )

6 x 8 lifting platform vs. 8 x 8? thetoolbox 9 5 yearsNorIda (46957): Sigh. 'Twas sarcasm.
How is this home gym platform plan? See pic thetoolbox 12 5 yearsthetoolbox (1): @_RudeCrew If I were to adapt my current plan to have the top layer be rubber and wood, then I'd have a center piece of 4x6. Do you think this is sufficient/doable? Which exercises do you normally do outside of the rack? I figure most exercises I'd be doing inside the rack for the sake of minimizing noise/floor damage.

what would you do or thinking about buying d BaiTu 3 5 yearseknight (58109): Various curls and extensions for arms; lunges; weighted sit ups; DB flyes; lateral raises and side laterals; Arnold's; calf raises; W and Y raises; rear delt flyes. Bro it's endless what you could do. And 15kg each is enough to to almost everything except the very basic compound movements. Once they start getting too light, slow your rep timing down. -3X

Which of these weight benches should I buy? xGabriel 6 5 yearsKnifeHands (5569): I would get an adjustable squat rack and an adjustable bench. Two separate pieces, most versatility possible.
maintaining while being away GRAL 3 5 yearsTyrannosaurusFlex (2641): Do bw excercises, eat a lot, and you should minimize the strength loss. I was in Kenya for 6 weeks ΓΆast spring, didn't get nearly enough protein and could only do bw exercises. Still came back nearly as strong as I had been when I left. Good luck!
HOMEGYM TRAINING RHGF 9 6 yearswannabemuscular (33216): Heres a link to a spreadsheet that you can use. It calculates all your %s automatically after you input your stats and numbers. 5/3/1 spreadsheet
Resistance bands ryan_929 19 6 yearsFiremanSi (42406): They've changed the colours so i had to measure mine. But i have the red band for shoulders and the Purple(mines Green) for the hip openers like bryce and ogus. Those of u from europe and the states can check this out also they give the measurements so u'd only need to convert them and compare.

Newbie Question.. manletofsteel298 8 6 yearsjonharder (1): you can shop for routines that what your db can combine, but honestly, that won't be too many. And I suggest you don't use dumb bells for routines that are for barbells. You may also try to check on body exercises and some stuff in the CrossFit training.

Muscle Building Home Workout? djbyrne 2 6 yearsSwoleAnimal (5971): If he has enough plates and dumbbells I suppose he could do everything he needed to do to have a complete workout. Just tell him to bench, deadlift, squat and throw in some curls for the girls.

Yeah my shoulders be weak. :( When i started lifting i only did curls and progressed from there. I remember one day when i first started lifting i got in argument with someone in the weight room so to prove i was stronger i curled the e-z curl bar with 10 lbs each side for 1 set of 1000reps to prove i was stronger. No brakes counted out loud to 1000 took me...

Off to military camp in a month cassious 7 7 yearsNJA82 (154): You will lose muscle, i dont know about coming back shredded, the food they serve at the mess is usually not real healthy and i actually put on body fat during my rookie training... It was disastrous towards my bodybuilding/strength training the first 6-12 months in the military because you hardly touch the iron and bodyweight stuff simply doesnt cut it, nor does 3 meals a day containing approx 30-40g protein each if your lucky. Just do what...
Is this a legitimate routine? myruin 3 7 yearsbrian12 (9495): Looks like quite a brutal workout - especially if you try to set a fast time. He looks like a seriously dodgy dude though - I wouldn't be surprised if he had a methlab in the back... might explain all his energy. lol

home gym vs gym JustinVoise83 2 7 yearsFuturevision (142): As far as i am concerned a gym memebership cost around 100 Euros for half a Year. (Atleast where i live) The things you need to do a proper workout at home will probably cost around 1000 Euros. That being said you can train around 5 years at a gym with all the equipment you will ever need.
body exercises ? tony989 6 7 yearsMrMailliw (4494): Adding to what @BaiTu said, do exploding BW squats - try and jump as high as possible and go ass to the grass on them!
PHAT home workout stewie 1 7 yearsstewie (442): I'm going away on business quite a lot, and the town I usually go to doesn't have a gym (WTF?). Any advice on what equipment I can get to workout in my hotel room, that's also easy to take with in my car? I am doing PHAT if that matters.

Dips McQueef 10 7 yearsMcQueef (2982): So I changed my approach regarding Dips based on all the advice, and the results have been great. I found some sturdy fold-up chairs to do hanging dips. I also started using a shorter ROM on the bench dips, and I have been able to get a nice muscle contraction without any pain in my front delts. Another adjustment that helped fix the delt strain (I think) was changing my split. I used to pair chest with tri's, so by the time I finished...

TBAR Rows @ Home GYM . FFS ... Ethan7X 8 8 yearshurricane92 (3699): You should be able to buy a holder like they have at gyms, but whether your family lets you mount it on your garage floor or not would make or break that option.
