Ideas For Building a Home Gym

A home gym isn’t just for the rich and famous anymore. All you need is a little (yes, just a little) space to be able to work out in the comfort of your own home.

Maybe it’s a home office that’s seen better days or a spare bedroom that’s become a storage space. With a little elbow grease, you can turn one of those spaces into an exercise room that accommodates your love of Pilates, yoga, running or whatever moves you.

Here are eight benefits of using free weights:

1.    WORK MUSCLES MORE EFECTIVELY – When you use free weights for strength training, you have to work harder against gravity. This is because you have to lift dumbbells or plates. As you maneuver the weight into different positions, this works out different muscles – including stabilizer muscles that aren’t activated as much on machines.

2.    CARDIO BENEFIT -In the first 4 weeks of strength training with free weights, your body builds muscle by contracting each muscle group. This helps to improve your overall strength while also burning fat

4.    VERSATILITY – Free weights, like dumbbells or weight plates lifted on bars

First – everybody has fat. Yes, even that person you see with a great six-pack – they have fat there as well.  There are two types of belly fat – the fat that is above your abdominal muscles, right under your skin. Then, there’s the fat under the muscle – that fat is called visceral fat. You need some visceral fat – it provides cushioning between your heart, lungs, and liver. But, too much of this fat is a bad thing – too much of it can lead to high blood pressure, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, dementia, and even some types of cancers!

Here’s what’s important to remember. Visceral fat hates activity! So –
