Hi. Today I asked you on our Facebook page to share some photos of your home gyms and your workout equipment there. The goal behind this task is to exchange ideas with each other and see what is needed to properly exercise at home. I stopped visiting public gyms around 2 and a half years ago. Ever since I have only been working out at home and only visiting gymnastics halls when I had to record videos.
I’ll start first by sharing what I use in my home workouts.
On this first photo you can see my set of rings. They are attached to the ceiling in my room. It is where my workouts always start(except for the leg workouts). I will begin with several sets of an exercise(levers or crosses usually) and then continue my workout using my assisting equipment which you can see on the photo below.
This is my “assisting” equipment the name comes from assisting exercises. I carry just 1/3 of my workout on the rings to protect the joints in my upper body. For the rest of the workout I am using the equipment in this image. 90% of the time I will be relying on my set of bodylastics to complete my workouts. I will attach them to the front door right behind them and perform a numerous amount of different exercises. In the photo there is also a skip rope(using it very rarely nowadays), another set of rings my sponsors have sent me(still to record a promo video for them), a white rope(used in the One arm chin-up tutorial), a green rubber band(I will show you how to use it in the iron cross tutorial), a sambo belt(for weighted pull-ups), also more rubberbands(which I use for push-ups and some leg exercises), 2 ab wheels(haven’t used them in forever), and 3 pairs of ankle weights(I add ankle weights for when I work crosses or levers on the rings).
This is all the equipment I am counting on for my training at home. Honestly I can go just by my rings and my rubberbands and wouldn’t ever need anything else. But that’s me, I am curious what is your home gym like and what are you most often using in your home workouts? Do you exercise at home only or do you go to a particular gymnastics or climbing gym? Or weightlifting gym?
Take some photos and send them to me on our facebook page or to our email – closetoimpossible AT gmail DOT com
