How To Build A Home Gym for Less Than $1,000!

How To Build A Home Gym for Less Than $1,000!

Gym Closed Because of Coronavirus? Here’s How To Build A Home Gym for Less Than The Price of a Gym Membership!

A Guest Article by Brian of HomeGymStrength.com

We are all stuck at home these days and can’t even go to the gym because of social distancing. So, this is the perfect time to build a home gym for less than the price of a gym membership!

“YOU CAN’T BE SERIOUS”, you might yell.

Let me assure you, I am very serious about fitness and a home gym is one of the best ways to maintain your physique. 

And yes, a home gym can not only cost less than a typical gym membership but also save you money in the long run.

A normal gym membership costs around $100 a month. This is for a gym that gives you good equipment and facilities. You can count the time and transport expenses on to that and it quickly balloons to a $1200 per year ordeal. 

While this may not seem like a lot, especially if you are getting some quality equipment, that membership can’t be used in the lockdown.


Building a Home Gym

A home gym is not only convenient but it can help you stay fit even during Coronavirus. The best part is, it doesn’t even need to cost a lot.

You wake up, go to your home gym, do some quality exercises and that’s it. No need to wear masks and gloves to drive to the gym that is probably closed or only allowing a few people inside.

How to Build a Home Gym

Building a home gym for Coronavirus is not that hard. You just have to look for good equipment online and have it delivered at your place.

Get Used Equipment

Finding used equipment is going to save you a lot of money when building your home gym.

Sure, if you can afford new stuff, then it is all good. But usually used equipment is not only cheaper but also just about the same quality. Gym equipment is made with durability and reliability in mind. So if someone used the equipment responsibly, it should still be in top condition.

You can find used equipment on Facebook Marketplace, Let Go, and even Craigslist. This guide about the best apps to find used home gym equipment will help. 

Just make sure the items are delivered to your home and wear protective gear when you receive them.

Get a Squat Rack

A squat rack is a good starting point. There are two types of squat racks; the full rack and the half rack. If you have a small space, get the best half racks. If you have ample area, get one of the best full squat racks.

Get a Bar

No, not the one that serves drinks. Get an Olympic barbell. Most are made out of incredibly strong materials and a used one won’t have any problems.

Get Weights

If you are new to lifting get bumper plates. If you already have a padded floor, you can get the best Olympic weights.

Get Adjustable Dumbbells

Some good quality adjustable dumbbells would complement the rest of the equipment nicely.

The Paleo Squat

the daily 30 fitness challenge

By going into the full depth Paleo Squat daily you will help to actively stretch out your muscles which in turn takes the pressure off of your joints.

The full depth position is especially great for spinal decompression, which is caused by bad posture, sitting and age. By simply performing this incredible exercise daily you can help to alleviate almost all of your muscle and joint pain!

Push-Ups

push up proper form

Push-ups are a great way to improve our upper body strength!

It not only works your arms, shoulders, and chest but your entire body from head to toe as you have to maintain a strong body position during the entire exercise. This promotes core strength during movement as you build up your body’s stabilizers.

Just remember, keep everything straight from head to toe! No mountain or valley hips (hips raised high or hips dropped low).

Prone Cobra Exercise

prone cobra yoga exercise for posture

Now, most people cannot do a Pull-Up, so we made a modification to accommodate everyone by replacing the Pull-Up exercise with a Prone Cobra Exercise.

The Prone Cobra is a Yoga Based Movement that works your entire posterior chain musculature helping to set our shoulders back in a better anatomical position while building core strength. This exercise works your entire back while stretching out our commonly tight chest and shoulder musculature, greatly improving our posture.

If you have bad posture, this is a great way to correct it!

Movement-Based​ Exercise

Movement-Based Exercise

the daily 30 fitness challenge

The Daily 30 is a movement based exercise routine that teaches you how to perfect your everyday movements in a simple and effective way.

Learn more about the Daily 30 Bodyweight Workout here!

All of the exercises in the Daily 30 are Basic Human Movements that our bodies already know how to do!

For example, the Paleo Squat is a great exercise to help decrease pain in your lower back, hips, knees, and ankles. This movement builds strength and muscle while improving your flexibility!

We call it the Paleo Squat because it is a movement that has been ingrained into our anatomy since the Paleolithic Era.

There were no chairs back then, and rocks are not always around to sit on, so humans would do a full depth squat, sitting on their ankles for rest.

If you don’t believe me, just watch an infant. When they go down to pick something up, what do they do?

They squat down with their feet flat and sit on their ankles in a perfect squatting position! They look pretty comfortable too!

When they are laying down or crawling, what do they do? A push-up, and eventually push themselves up into a squatting position to stand!

Then watch how they climb things. They don’t jump onto things. They grab a hold of something with their little death gripping claws and pull themselves up, as we were designed to do!

You might notice that some African and Asian cultures maintain most of these movements because they have movement built into their culture. They still squat instead of using chairs, they do physical labor daily and are always being active with their bodies.

It is those that are sedentary (without exercise) that have the worst movement patterns, overall health, and physical pains.

Those that are constantly active tend to have much greater movement abilities, strength, health and the least amount of pain.

Again, we are born with these movement patterns of how to squat, push-up, and pull properly, but lose them over time through lack of practice as we grow.

If we want to maintain or re-ingrain these movements into our body, we have to practice them every single day!

The more often we do them, the faster we will get them back and the better you will feel, guaranteed!
