Jim wants to start working out on a regular basis. He’s really excited about it, and has got the equipment that he needs – he’s chosen a barbell, dumbbells, and a stability ball. Now, where can he find a home gym workout routine that will use the equipment he has?
Magazines Up The Wazoo! With Home Gym Workout Routine
Maybe you haven’t noticed – there are so many magazines available, about almost every topic you can imagine. Fitness magazines are no exception. There are magazines for hard core fitness buffs, and for those just starting out on the road to fitness. There are ones designed for women, and others geared for men. Whatever your niche – whether you want to become a competitor in the weight lifting arena, or the new Lance Armstrong, or any other specialty, there’s a magazine for you.
And these magazines have workout routines – usable in home gyms. If the magazine has a specific focus, it will specialize in the exercises that will increase the muscles primarily used in that sport – but all of them will also have just general, good, all around muscle fitness types of routines. Just take a look.
Home Gym Workout Routine At The Gym
If you have been going to a gym in your neighborhood, you can look around. Some gyms will have available information about workout routines. Home gym equipment also works for these routines. If your gym doesn’t make routines available, ask around. Others may have a source for their routine that they’d be willing to share, especially if they are using equipment you like using.
Internet Sources – The Motherlode
There are many sites on the internet that have workout routines suitable for home gyms. Just use a search engine, type in “workout routine” and possibly “home gym” and they’ll come up by the pageful. Take a look around and you’ll probably find at least one that uses the equipment you want to use in your home gym workout routine. You can also include in your search the specific piece of equipment you have – for example, include the search term “stability ball” and more specific results will show up on your screen. Many sites also have charts for home gym workout accountability. You can keep track of how you do in their online or printable chart.
You can also check the web site for any of the fitness magazines. Most – if not all – of them archive information from their magazines on a regular basis. If what you wanted wasn’t in this month’s printed magazine, but you liked the tone of the magazine, check their web archives. There’s a good chance they have a routine that you’d like right there on their website.
