5 Mass-Building Home Gym Workouts On A Budget!

There's no need for fancy equipment when first starting out. Here are equipment ideas and 5 home-gym workouts for beginners and anyone wanting to train on their own time!

By: Richard Choueiri

Setting up a home gym is a great alternative for people who can't afford a gym membership, are short on time, or just don't like exercising in public. With the right equipment available, a mass-building workout can certainly be implemented.

In fact, many champion bodybuilders began training in their homes using only basic equipment and many still do today. There's no need for fancy equipment when first starting out, but as time progresses, more equipment will be needed for continual muscle-building.

Home Mass-Building Workouts

There are five mass-building workouts below. Depending on home equipment availability and your current level of fitness, you will need to choose the workout that suits you best. No matter which workout you choose, make sure you take two to three days off from the gym to rest and recover from all of the training.

Since the workouts are for mass building, the amount of reps per set for most exercises will range from medial to low. However, proper form must be maintained during the execution of all exercises to avoid injury. Also, to further prevent injury, the first set of each exercise is to be performed with light weights for warm-up purposes. The only exclusion to this is the push-up, pullup, and crunch, none of which need a warm-up set.
