best equipment for a home gym?

Post by eatingright » Tue Jan 05, 2016 7:46 am

Hey,
I got dumbbells and an exercise ball. I can do a few workouts with these two.
Can anyone recommend any home gym equipment you've found effective for muscle building workouts at home?

Add a chin up bar first. That's enough to get full workout if you add bodyweight exercises. Next easiest is a selection of kettlebells. Ideally, a barbell and squat rack and a bench and you have all you need.

Weider power tower is really good, it's very versatile it has knee raise station, a multi-grip pull-up station, a dip station, and a push-up station.
