View Full Version : I am limited...

I currently have no access to a gym but I do have a home gym. Here are the exercises I am able to do:

Bench Press
Close Grip Pulldown
Front Pulldown
Rear Pulldown
Underhand Pulldown
And a leg extension thing for the quadriceps.

I also have calf raises and squats to do so I'm okay for legs.

I also have two 8lbs dumbells...

Are those exercises sufficient enough for me to get a total body workout?

Just a quick read over and you should add close grip to your bench press...Those hit the tris really nice I think

If you can bench press I assume you have a flat bench (obviously!)?

With a barbell you can try:

Triceps: JM presses, skull crushers/or french presses

Shoulders: push press,military press, up-right rows

Biceps: any curls, or if have something to hang off of do chin-ups.

Back: Deadlifts, barbell-bent over rows, if YOU DO happen to have a place to do chin ups, buy a dipping belt and do weighted chin-ups/pull-ups.

Legs: Your lucky! I don't have a squat rack.

Other movements: Dips, Shrugs, I'm pretty sure there are plenty of exercises you can do at home.

With the light 8 lbs. dumbells you could work your rotator cuffs maybe ??
