Over lockdown a lot of gym-goers have realised that they actually prefer working out at home than in the gym. No waiting around for machines to become free, no wiping down barbells after someone else has used them, and no gym commute.
So, if you’ve decided home-workouts are the way for you, and you’re thinking about decking out your garage with a home gym, we’ve got some of the key components to start you off.
1. Adjustable Dumbbells
Instead of investing in a set of dumbbells that can end up being expensive, try some adjustable ones.
These dumbbells allow you to only have one set of dumbbells that let you attach whatever weight you need to it. That means one set of dumbbells can be anything from 1kg-15kg.
Not only is the nicer to your wallet, it also saves storage space as a full set of dumbbells can take up a huge amount of space. This also means you only need one set of dumbbells and a few different weights to do a tonne of different exercises.

2. Resistance Bands
These are a no-brainer for any home gym.
Resistance bands add an extra level of resistance to any workout, which is definitely needed when you’re not in a gym.
They’re also perfect to get your muscles warmed up and ready to smash your session.
