    but not really a joke.




    i bought a 300 lb weight set and a bench with an attached squat rack. I was wondering if anyone has any resources on good home gym type workouts if you lack access to normal gym type machines.


    I was wondering what some good exercise rotations were besides deadlift/bench/squat that you can do at home with a barbell.

    Where and how much?

    You can replace almost of your entire workout:
    Legs:
    squat, deadlift, lunges
    Back:
    power cleans, RDL, SLDL, T-bar, BB rows
    Shoulders:
    military press, Bradford press, upright row, shrugs, lat/front raises (with plates only)
    Chest:
    pushups :dunno:, flies (with plates)
    Tris:
    skull crusher
    Bi:
    curls

    Pick any exercise and there is probably a way to do it with only a barbell and a 300lb weight set.

    bench, squat, deadlift, barbell rows, etc etc etc

    You can do almost everything you need.

    I've been working out exclusively at home for just about a year now.

    in for pics of traps.

    and for 2 years I had no access to a gym but i carried a weight set around with me and i was able to get a pretty good workout with just that. although when I got to go back to the gym progress started much more rapidly again.

    i used to lift but i also used to have free access to a rec center at my university and didnt have to worry about beign creative with a barbell.
