Your goals with home exercising

Your goals with home exercising

Consider what you're trying to achieve.

  • If your goal is general health and well-being, a pleasant stroll is sufficient.
  • If you want to lift heavy weights, there isn't a minimalist setup that can replicate a barbell. While a barbell and weight plates would let you do almost everything, you need quite a bit of room to use them, ideally an outdoor area or a garage.

Heavy kettlebells

Heavy kettlebells

Two heavy kettlebells are the next best thing to a bar and plates. A weight of between 20 and 24 kilograms (45 to 52 pounds) is recommended.

By using the kettlebells individually or together, you can focus on almost every muscle group by squatting, swinging, pressing, pulling, or pushing them.**

Resistance bands and a stick

Resistance bands and a stick

Two kettlebells might not be enough resistance for movements like squats and deadlifts. Some resistance or pull-up bands can increase resistance when you do "sumo-style" squats and deadlifts by looping one band around your wide-spread feet and through the handles of the kettlebells.

Add a wooden broom handle, and you have a wide range of new exercises. With a stick and a band, you can do many pulling exercises.

Gymnastic rings or suspension straps can be used to do pull-ups and rows. They are also used for some ab exercises.

Expanding your gym

There are always pieces you can add to your gym, depending on your goals.

  • If you have space, a barbell is the best thing you can buy. Up to 225 pounds is suitable for an average person.
  • For cardio, you can run outside, add a jump rope, or use a bicycle.
  • Sandbags and slam balls allow for more high-intensity workouts outdoors.
  • A yoga mat makes the floor movements more comfortable.
  • More kettlebells or a set of dumbbells can also be added.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
