No matter what your training goals may be, working out from home is almost certainly going to help you to get better results right away. In most circumstances, working out from home offers better advantages than going to the gym. Stay with us and you’ll learn why.
And in fact, if you’re overweight or generally very out of shape, then I would argue that training from home is the only way to build muscle. Likewise, if your aim is to get into incredible superhero shape, then training from home is probably the only chance you realistically have.
Let’s imagine for a moment that you’re very overweight and you really want to get into decent shape. In this scenario, you will most likely have tried numerous different strategies to get into shape and you will possibly have been let down with the various workouts and diets you’ve tried. This is the tried and true story that so many people experience – they buy into countless supplements, countless weight loss programs, diets, training regimes… and they get nowhere.
But the problem isn’t with the training programs. The problem isn’t that they are somehow ‘untrainable’ and unable to achieve the shape they want. Rather, the problem is that they can’t stick to the regimes and they don’t manage to get to the gym enough.
Why? Because people who are overweight are usually tired. They’re normally overweight because they’re not active enough and they’re not active enough because at the end of the day, when they get home from work, they have 3 hours before bed and they spend that crashed out on the couch. Small amounts of exertion make them sweaty and out of breath, meaning that they won’t exactly enjoy training. Sticking to any training regime in this scenario is going to be hard – but when you add in the need to drive to the gym, then train in front of countless strangers feeling very self-conscious… is it any wonder it doesn’t work out? Then you have to shower…
Compare this with training from home, which will allow you to slowly introduce small amounts of training into your regime, to increase your energy levels, your mood and your health. Everyone can fit 10 minutes into their day, especially when the equipment they need is right there and they can train in privacy. You see the difference?
But what about those real athlete types? These are the people with no problem generating the energy they need to train. People with no problem finding the will to train.
But with the best will in the world, even the top fitness fanatics on YouTube only have a finite amount of time in their day. There’s only so much time they can spend training. If they’re going to the gym every time they workout, then that means that they’re going to be spending time and energy getting there – meaning there’s less in the tank for their actual workouts!
Then there’s the fact that they have to wait for the equipment they want to train with to become free. Then there’s the fact that there are some things you just can’t do in the gym – some very basic things in fact.
No imagine that you take a different approach and you build a home gym in your garage. Even if this is just a bench press, this is now a bench press you can use every single day. And this is a bench press that you can use whenever you want to without having to drive there or queue. Or maybe you need something more specific? Like a set of monkey bars you can use to do your own home street workouts.
Being able to train whenever you need to, with no queue and no drive. That’s when you start to see truly incredible transformations. That’s when you truly never skip a day at the gym.
So yes, training from home is the only way if you really want to smash your goals – no matter what they are. But of course there are some big challenges and some big questions that face those who want to start working out from home. Read on and let’s take a closer look at how you can go about building muscles from home with programs that are guaranteed to work – and in some case get incredible, unheard of results.
