This is one of the best home gyms you can build for the price, it focuses on both Cardio and Weight Training, but needs a lot of space to make it work.
The $1500 Home Gym Workout:
Mon-Weds-Fri – DB Circuit Training
DB Bench Press
Bench Step Up w/DB
DB Shoulder Press
Swiss Ball Crunch
Barbell Calf Raise
The above workout should be done in Circuit Fashion. Start with one total circuit for the first week and slowly work your way up to 3 total circuits in the upcoming weeks.
Tue-Thu-Sat – Cardio
Run, Walk, Jump Rope, Shadow Box, etc… for at least 30 minutes each day. Work you way up to 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Or you can put your newly purchased Heavy Bag or Exercise Bike to good use. My favourite cardio workout is heavy bag training. Check out my other guides on Heavy Bag cardio training to find out how I workout with my heavy bag.
The best Exercise Bike workout I’ve ever used is a high intensity Interval Training Circuit. Circuit training is simple, start out with 5 minutes of low intensity, then push the pace for 1 minute, slow down for 3 minutes, push the pace for another minute, and so on. Keep this up until you’re beat. Just remember to end your workout with a 5-minute cool down period.
