Best home items for gaining muscle
Going to the gym on a regular basis can get difficult with the busy schedules that we all follow. Working out at home seems like the only option that a few people have. Building your body at home isn’t a difficult task. All you need is the right equipment and a good energy rich and high protein diet and you will be able to gain muscle.
Building muscle is not an easy task and it does require a routine workout every day. Building muscles are best done with weight training. But before you begin your weight training it is always better to improve your fitness and stamina with some good old cardio. Once you have sufficient stamina you can begin exercising towards gaining muscle. Now to gain muscle you are going to have to get a few things.
The first thing you are going to need is a set of weights. A full set of dumbbells should be high on your list for giving your arms and shoulders a good work out. Solid rubber encased dumbbells with chrome handles which do not chip should be on your list. Initially you should choose lower weights and then move up to the heavy weights once you are used to them. If you have the money to invest it would be great to get yourself a commercial dumbbell rack with all the weights. This way once you get use to a weight you don’t really need to keep going to the store and buying new ones.
Weights cover only your arms and shoulders. To make use of them to exercise your chest and abdominal regions you are going to require a good work out bench. With a work out bench you could use your weights and exercise your chest, back and even your abdominal muscles. Most workout benches can be adjusted into different positions, building muscles in different parts of your body. These workout benches can be folded and kept aside when not in use, this way you save quite a bit of space as well.
There are a few workout benches even help you exercise your legs. Workout benches for legs like the Powerline leg extension by Body Solid is perfect for building muscle in your legs. You can add and remove weights to the weight post to increase or decrease your work. The diameter of the weight post is about 1 inch which is standard.
So get yourself some muscle building equipment and work out at the luxury of your home!
