Don’t be that guy:
Don’t be that guy who bothers their neighbor. If you are building a gym don’t forget to soundproof it. Make sure you have enough mats on the floor and some good carpeting underneath it. This way you can drop them heavyweight bang on the floor without having to worry about your neighbors. You can blast your favorite heavy metal music while you are at it and don’t have to worry if you soundproof your home gym! So do keep these in mind and properly sound deaden your room.
Building your very own gym can be very exciting. And due to this excitement, many of us tempted to buy as much as the equipment we want for it. Let’s face it the gym inside your home is not likely to be very big. You don’t want to stuff in equipment and accessories which you do not need. You might start to feel claustrophobic due to the room being overstuffed. As I mentioned before your home gym should be a secondary gym and you should train in it only during your off days. So just make sure there is a dumbbell rack, a squat or a smith machine and a bench press. Trust me these three piece of equipment are enough to target each and every muscle of your body if you know what you are doing. So make sure you don’t go overboard with the types of equipment.
Know your budget:
Now, the last tip we mentioned about lowering the number of equipment you buy. This tip goes hand in hand with that. Try to think about your budget and allocate it accordingly. You should be getting the three piece of equipment mentioned above. There is no benefit if you have five grand to spend and spend 4 grand on a single smith machine. So do figure out your budget and make sure you can buy all of the main equipment you need. And lastly, there is no need to spend a fortune on gym equipment. As this will be your secondary gym and you already have access to a gym with good equipment you don’t need to have the highest priced items in your home gym. You can even make your own bench press and squat rack and dumbbell rack if you have a tight budget!
