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.

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.

What are the views of regular gym-goer on setting on home gym?

Many people may argue that why pay so much for the equipment when you can just pay $2.50 for clubfit entry. However what they have missed out is the travelling cost and time. A home gym is a lifelong investment, it is definitely more worth to build your own gym rather than wasting the time to travel and squeeze with the crowd.

Some may say that you are wasting money on weights as you will always outgrow them. First of all, here are some facts:

1) Newbies to weightlifting gain muscle much faster than people who have been lifting a long time.

2) As you train, you will get diminishing returns until you reach your genetic maximum.

As such, many of us who trained non competitively will never have a chance to reach our maximum. On average...

The Benefits Of Thick Bar Training

There has recently been something of a re-discovery of thick bar training; a training style which Old-Time Strongmen knew all about and used to great effect but which has almost been forgotten in modern times.

In this article, we will examine how thick bar training works, why it is now used by bodybuilders, NFL teams and Special Forces soldiers and why it can make a BIG difference to YOUR muscle and strength gains.

What Is Thick Bar Training?

If you are not familiar with thick bars, they are simply barbells, dumbbells and pull-up bars with a much thicker handle. A standard barbell, dumbbell, or pull-up bar typically has a handle with a diameter of about 1 inch. A thick bar will often have a diameter of more like 2.5 inches (some look more like truck axles) an...
