- Recommend me a multi-gym for home
as above, free weights are way more versatil than a multi gym. If you are bored – look around for a programme that will keep you interested. I am doing a Mon/Tue/Thur/Fri programme that keeps to 5 excercises per day, but to exaustion. Never gets boring, and can be done with dumbells, barbells, bench and chin up bar.Posted 9 years agoShandySubscriber
Maximum you need is a couple of dumbells and a long bar, although you could probably get a couple of kettlebells (and a book about them) for under a hundred quid. A punchbag is good craic too.
The key is to mix up what you are doing to avoid boredom, and to read up a bit on different types of training session and exercises involved.
In comparison training on a multigym would actually be more boring. A variety of exercises with free weights, maintaining good posture, will give you far better gains in terms of shape and functional strength.
If you get easily bored stick some music on and work it into a circuit split between upper and lower body.Posted 9 years agoBillOddieSubscriber
Yep freeweights, get your diet right and maybe use a protein powder to top up your protein intake (you need to be taking in 1-1.5g of protein per kg of bodyweight.)
Though you will be limited to upper body as you will struggle to do you legs properly with out a squat rack and lots of plates.
But from your post that doesn’t appear to be the issue.
Also, not convinced that heavy weights on legs is compatible with regular cycling anyway. If you train your legs properly your legs will be sore for a week afterwards.
The split I use for upper body:
Dunbell Bench Press
Close Grip Bench
PullPosted 9 years ago
Reverse Grip Curls
