    Hello, new guy here. Well, it just depends I try to do as much strenght training as I can (have dumbells,bench, bar etc...) but i usually get caught up doing cardio and bodyweight! at least for now...I really enjoy working out at home but i get more distracted than what i like to admit!

    U dont be worried about that,its okay to train at home,but dont avoid world because u have some belly fat,just step out from home,go to run and train with someone,i have people who train with me and want to lose fat,that is not problem at all...problem is when u feel that other guy's loking on you with sneering,but no!! Thet not be happen....trust me!! :)

    Hey Ivan! welcome to the site brotha!

     

    and I hear you. It is very hard to not be distracted when at home.. but it sounds like you are doing well. When I was a kid I used to lift in my basement. I had ONLY my weights and a radio so it was very easy to get lost in the workout and not worry about distractions. Maybe try that! #HTH

    How u like to train at home?

    January 12, 2014, 8:57 am

    I've only recently tried to get in better shape, but this is what I've been doing at home the last few days anyway. I always try for 10 reps per exercise, and am going for 3 sets right now. I haven't been doing all these exercises each time, but have been picking 3-4 to do.

     

    Pushups

    Dips (using coffee table)

    Bicep curls with curl bar (both outside and inside grip)

    Lunges with curl bar (more comfortable than straight bar on my shoulders)

    Overhead presses with curl bar or dumbells

     

    I'm wanting to try hammer curls soon, but I don't have enough weights to make my dumbells even. I have two 10lb plates, and two 5lb, as well as four 2&1/2lb plates, but I've weighed the dumbells seperately, and they are a couple of pounds different in this setup. I've ordered a bench which should be ariving soon, so I can be adding dumbell bench, barbell bench, and hopefully flyes to this as well.

    thanks for the reply. I'm not entirely sure what supersets are, unless you are talking about doing all the exercises in one set, then repeating. if that's the case, then I need to learn to comprehend what I read better I guess. also, since I didn't list as many lower body exercises, could anyone give a few suggestions? I'm a little limited on space to move around, which is why I haven't tried stepping lunges yet. When my bench arrives, I also plan on starting to do hamstring curls like Scott did in at least one of his videos.

This is what i do at home.

    All I read was sissy squats, and stopped there....AWESOME thing to add to legs, and not a very well-known exercise with most people, since I saw a "10 commandments for leg workouts" and it NEVER mentioned "Sissy squats are NOT for sissies" XD.

    In my condition right now, its so nice to train at home. I do basic trainings using body weights for triceps, calves, abs, and chest. I do have some few equiptments ( ab rocket, combo bench set that can be use for bench press, incline and decline chest workout ) at home but I only use them to pumped my muscle during rainy season and if I'm not in full condition to do heavy lifting!.

    thanks for the reply and tips. I'm doing legs today, and will try to incorporate some of these suggestions. I'm planning to do, in no real order yet:

     

    Bodyweight lunges

    Jump lunges (these sound cool)

    Barbell lunges

    Squats (these will be tougher though since I don't have a squat rack to use)

     

    I wish I had a way to strap dumbbells to my feet so that I could do leg presses.

    Thanks  I don't think I've ever had a problem with being motivated. Call me weird but I can't wait to lift weights. Okay..I'm less excited about cardio lol but I love lifting weights. 

    lol @strongismysuperpower I just complained about cardio today! I also lift at home and have never been to the gym, I dont think I'd be any more motivated by joining one either. Plus my husband lifts and he's all I really need for help with form and spotting 😄 not to mention watching Scott's YouTube videos 😌 It makes me nervous to think about lifting while strangers watch lolololol
