At Home Gym Workout

Recently my husband I put together most of a home gym. We still have a few more pieces to go, but we have the major pieces. Below is the workout that I have come up with that I will be doing with the equipment that I have.

But first I want to share with you the equipment that we have gotten because I am super excited about having a gym in the garage!

Squat Rack

Olympic Dumbbells to use with the weight set we bought.

This weight bench which includes the bench (incline/decline), preacher curl/back extension attachment, leg curl/leg extension attachment.

We had some 5lb and 10lb dumbbells and this dumbbell set already.

Last weekend we did pick up a door frame pull up bar from Play it Again Sports but we found that our squat rack had a pull up bar with it, so we may use that randomly or just not use it.
