Training and nutrition advice
I love going to the gym. I don't love that it takes time to get there and back. For busy people, sometimes having to make time just to drive to and from the gym is a hassle. Some people would benefit from working out in their homes.
One workout plan I'd like to share with you DOES involve SOME weights. You don't need much, especially if you're a beginner. Some used dumbbells will work just fine. You CAN buy brand new ones, but it's not necessary.
Scooby (not the dog) has been giving great, FREE training advice online for many years now. He's truly an expert in fitness. I came across a workout plan he's put together to help people new to fitness get started in the ease of their own homes. You CAN do this in a gym, but you don't have to. I feel this is an excellent workout starting point for a lot of people who have never tried to be physically fit.
You WILL need a pull-up bar, which are fairly cheap and/or easy to make. You can even get one that uses just friction to stick in a doorway. I have one called "Big Mike's Pull-Up Bar". Having some dumbbells will be a good idea (eventually) for the squat portion of the workout. Some of you may be fine with just doing body weight squats in the beginning. However, you may be surprised how quickly your leg strength increases!
This workout consists of just four exercises: squats, pull-ups, push-ups, and... rotisseries??? Yup!
