Due to this journey of creating a budget home gym, I have faced some issues, and researched a lot, on various products available in the market.
Before creating the home gym, I have been going to professional or commercial gyms for practice.
And even from my teen years, I have been doing bodyweight workouts as well.
I have successfully gained 10 kgs of muscle in 10 months of time while visiting the commercial gym!
All those years of going to a commercial gym have given me enough knowledge regarding fitness gear and workout routines.
when I started doing office work, I could not bring myself to get ready and go to the gym after a 10-hour workday. 😫
Now I focus on compound movements, stretches, and a proper warm-up.
The older you get, your body recovers slowly, so while working out at home I prefer doing a mix of compound workouts, stretching, and some Olympic lifts.
If you are in my shoes of mine, age 30+, doing a desk job, then you can skip the Olympic lifts.
I like doing snatch, clean, and press, thus I do it.
But it is not needed for an office worker who wants to stay fit.
I have taken quite a lot of supplements over the years as well.
For me, herbal supplements like ashwagandha etc has a very slow effect or no effect at all.
As the research says, creatine and whey protein worked the best for me.
If you can not buy any other supplement, then you should start with creatine alone.
Since I am not into pro bodybuilding, sports thus simple supplements, easy workout routines, and a simple home gym work well for me.
