    Need a gym membership?

    February 24, 2019, 9:11 pm

    Newbie here. . .assuming we properly classify previous attempts in my youth as examples of poor form, insufficient diet, lack of knowledge, etc. (I will blame it on herd mentality 😐 )

    Some basic core stretching exercises a few months back led to some dumbbells, weight bench/basic set of weights, and so on. My trying to do things correctly has certainly paid off so far, and that is why I kept coming back here. 

    It appears many of the workout routines on this site are geared for people at/with pro gym equipment. I am not ruling that out down the line, but I wonder how well I can suffice with what I have?

    If I outgrow the stuff, GREAT. But, I am not running out just yet. And it isn’t so much the cost, but I do like the convenience of having the stuff in my basement. 

    (45, 170#, 5’9”, looking to gain some strength/muscle. While nice, I am not worrying about getting the frat boy image. I want to set reasonable and achievable goals. )

    @jrs8084 If you have dumbbells, a bench, a barbell and the basics like that, you should be able to do a good portion of the Full Body Evolution program. I tried to make that a free weight only program - no machines. If you don't have a squat rack then obviously squats and rack pulls might be a bit difficult, but you should be able to do most exercises and any that you can't do, you can post on the FBE routine that you're struggling with (in terms of exercises) and we can give you some alternatives!
