Equipment Guide

13Aug
13Aug

Our aim of writing this guide is to touch on the important parts to look out for when buying a treadmill, and we will keep it short and sweet!

Motor

Make sure to always find out the CHP (continuous) as some may use peak HP to make the motor seems bigger than it actually is. In general, higher HP will allow the motor to run with less strain and thus able to use for a longer period of time with less heat generated.

Incline

With speed being constant, a higher incline level will burn more calories and have less impact on the joints. 

Running Area

The optimal area we advise is at least 50 x 140cm. This is so that the user do not have to worry so much about running out of track and can focus on the exercise. For example, when the user is tired, he/she will tend to sway left and right.

Basic Features

Strength

The main purpose of having a power rack is safety. Thus it is important to choose a rack with high weight rating. These values usually represent the static weight load, so a safe gauge will be to have the rating double of what you can lift.

Hole spacing

Narrow hole spacing is required for setting the safety bar at the correct height. For example when doing bench press, if the safety bar is too high, it will reduce the range of motion when benching, and if it is too low, it is the same as not having it. Recommended hole spacing is the most 2 inch apart, and of course smaller will be better.

Width

The rack must be wide enough to allow enough room for workout inside. However it cannot be too wide that when re-racking, you need to be precise to make sure the inner bar fit in ...

Identify your goals and constraints

These are the question you should ask yourself before making a decision:

Folding or Non Folding

For people with space constraint, folding bench will be a better choice as they can be folded to be kept away. However folding bench offer less stability and functions as compared a non folding bench. At homegym.sg, we have taken these points into consideration and offered folding bench which are as stable as non folding bench as well as non folding bench which can be kept in a compact manner.

Here we will compare some of our most popular benches:

Deluxe folding bench

Pros: Light and compact. Stable enough for most usage. Able to use as decline, flat and incline. 

Cons: Seat not adjustable. Backrest can only go up to about 70 degrees max.

The Problem with Dumbbells.

Progressive Loading Impossible.

The key to building muscle & strength is progressive loading. Beginners can easily add 2.5kg on the bar each workout. With dumbbells you’re adding 2.5kg per hand. Systematic increases of 5kg (both hands) lead to stalling sooner.

No Quality Leg Workout.

Dumbbell Lunges, Step-ups & Dumbbell Squats will never stress your legs as hard as Squats & Deadlifts. Furthermore, as the weight gets heavier, it will be harder to grip the dumbbell while doing the workout. 

Time Consuming. 

 For adjustable dumbbells, changing the weight on these takes longer than changing the weight on a barbell. Unless you have tons of dumbbells, you’ll lose time adding & removing weight. 

Harder to get in position.

 When you're pressing a lot of weight, barbells often p...

An adjustable weight dumbbell set is most suitable to be used in home gym. It is because the amount of weight one can handle will vary with different routine, therefore you can perform more routines using an adjustable dumbbell as compared to a fix weight dumbbell.

They come in plates of different weights and handle to hold the plates. A typical set comes with plates of hole diameter between 2.55-3cm. The handle also varies in diameter to suit the plates. In addition, you are able to purchase and add new plates to your existing set when you become stronger in the future.

Recommendation:

  • Dumbbell with rubberised plates to reduce noise and protect floor
  • Rubber handle to provide comfort
  • Thicker grip (thicker diameter handle) to provide more intensity and result from workout

Suitable product: 20kg D...

Before setting up your home gym, here are some of the points you have to think about:

1) How big is your available space? How much extra space can you create?

This will determine what kind of equipment you are able to put in your available space.

2) What is your goal?

Again, this will determine what kind of equipment you will need to achieve your goal.

3) What should you do when you are on tight budget?

Having a home gym is a lifelong investment, it can be built with time. Limited budget will only hold you back temporarily, but will never hold you forever. You must plan on the most suitable equipment to get currently, and also slowly plan on growing your home gym.
