I can put you onto a cheap, lightly used Nautilus system. Part of the workout benefit of this particular system is the “delivery” itself. Guaranteed to get your blood flowing and a challenging workout just to get it out the door.

let me know...

I have.an Inspire FT2, it is three years old, and it works like the day I got it. I moved a few years ago and disassembled and reassembled it myself, it is a quality piece of equipment. For me, the only downside is all the fasteners are metric, and it is made in China. Not sure of your timeframe, but Inspire had a Black Friday sale, I think it was 10 or 15% off.

That’s what we did. Nordic Trac stationary bike and those goofy dumbbells that you can change the weight on. Going to get a simple incline/decline bench but there are a lot of flimsy pieces of shit out there so I am taking my time finding the right one.

Something like this, but check out fringe sports for cheaper prices.

X3 Bar - easy to travel with it and up to 350 lbs resistance for the big gym rats...

https://www.jaquishbiomedical.com/x3-bar/

I have been been using it for 3 months and have been impressed.

Follow the daily routine and commit 15-20 mins a day. That simple.

Concept is: Time under variable tension, working to muscle exhaustion at 15-40 reps depending on bands selected. HIIT with meaningful cardio benefit too, if real work is being done. Lots of FB user forum posts for those on FB.

Good luck.

This ^ I use to go to a gym and use the machines and do a little cardio on a stationary bike. Quit going for awhile as I hated the crowded gym and waiting for the machines. Converted one of the bedrooms in my house into a home gym. Got a descent bench, some dumbbells with a rack and a stationary bike. I actually get a much better workout with the dumbbells than the machines even though I was using heavier weight on the machines.

What are you trying to accomplish? Build muscle? Maintain? Lose weight?

Where do you hang the 20' rope and gymnastic rings?

Take roids and go jogging every once in a while. Takes up considerably less space, easy to clean and maintain, and you don't have to work out.





























Just kidding. Its tough to beat a rogue/valor/Prx/fringe garage gym if you're serious about working out. If you're coming from a globogym type workout plan, any of the typical gym-in-a-box setups are a dime a dozen and will get the job done.

This. For more variety, buy a second 20kg kettlebell.

If I want to use that I would hit the gym at work that has those and caving ladders. If I wanted that at home I would put them in my garage or build a rack in the back yard out of 8x8s.

Barbell, bumper plates, squat rack with pullup bar, adjustable bench. Add kettle bells, assault bike, and/or rower if you want a little more.
