Why can`t I just workout at home for good?
I recently purchased a dumbbell set, maxed at 50 for each dumbbell. I have been doing a sweet workout, that leaves me sore, seeing gains, and helping acheive whatever goals I have right now. After I max out the dumbbells in a few months, I plan on purchasing a barbell and starting Rippetoes.
At home I have an excercise machine, dumbbell set, treadmill and eliptical. If I add a barbell with a wide range of weights, I think I`ll be pretty set?
When I say I`m doing a dumbbell only routine at home, the members here immediatly comment back with get a gym membership -- even after I explain my situation. Whats so special about the gym, that I can`t do at home with the equipment I have, or could have (barbell)?
For Rippetoes the only things I see special that I need are a barbell and possibly a chin up bar (not hard to aquire).
Can someone clarify for me?
