Whether you want to maintain a healthy body, get in shape, or build some muscle, consistency is the key. However, the extra effort it takes to go to the gym every day can make it harder to motivate yourself to work out. The solution? Home Gym.
On paper, this idea seems perfect, doesn’t it? However, you have to get everything right for it to work, especially the design. A boring incomplete home gym can just as well demotivate you.
Here’s your guide to creating a perfect home gym.
Cardio and Aerobic Exercise Equipment
Cardio and aerobic equipment is essential for every gym. If your goals are to increase your lung and heart health and get in shape, you should first focus on getting cardio/aerobic exercise equipment. Cardio/aerobic exercise also delays the onset of many diseases, including type 2 diabetes. Even if your goals are to build muscle, you need cardio/aerobic equipment to lower your fat percentage and bring the muscles out.
You have several choices in cardio/aerobic exercise equipment to choose from. You can get a treadmill, a stair climber, an elliptical, or something else along those lines. Cardio/aerobic equipment mainly focuses on your thigh muscles; they’re the largest in the body and can burn the most calories. If you don’t want to invest too much in cardio/aerobic equipment, you can get away with a jump rope. Alternatively, you can go out for a run every day.
Hypertrophy and Endurance Equipment
Hypertrophy and endurance equipment include dumbbells, medicine balls, kettle bass, suspensions, and other weights. Hypertrophy and endurance exercises mostly focused on building muscle. This equipment can also burn calories—all exercise consumes energy—but you can’t burn calories with hypertrophy and endurance exercise as fast. You still need cardio/aerobic equipment.
If building muscle is not one of your goals, we’ll still suggest getting some weight and doing some weight training. You naturally lose muscle mass as you age, which results in frailty and vulnerability to accidents such as hip injuries. Hypertrophy and endurance exercise can prevent it—so it does have health benefits.
