This is a great workout for someone who wants to build muscle at home with minimal equipment.

There are 2 pieces of equipment I would suggest purchasing:

Adjustable Dumbbells: A set of adjustable dumbbells is the most important piece of equipment to buy. Buying something like these and buying plates for them will be the most economical. Being able to add a lot of weight to your dumbbells is important; you can’t do a lot with 40 pounds after a few weeks of training.

An Adjustable Bench: An ideal bench would be one you could adjust from flat up to 90 degrees. Doesn’t have to be anything fancy at all.

    Great information! It’s also a good idea to have the proper flooring or matting in place to ensure the safety of yourself and your home. This can help lower your risk to injury, protect the foundation of your home, and ensure oneself that you are getting the most out of your workout. Thanks for sharing your information!

    Thanks can you make it so the exercises can be clicked on like the 4-day dumbbell ones which links directly to the video of that exercise showing you proper form?
