Through out my time training I’ve tried enjoyed both bodybuilding oriented and powerlifting oriented workouts. Work and family life have made it alot more difficult to get an in a work out at the gym. My work schedule will go from nights to days multiple times during the week. When I’m on day’s, i get home from work at about 1700. By the time I change clothes, do a warm up and drive to the gym, work out and drive home its now 1900. Enough time to have dinner with family and put my son to bed. An entire day with out spending time with my son.
I want to come up with a workout I can do at home. This way I don’t spend as much time out and my 2.5yo son gets to see me working out and I can role model that behaviour for him.
I have The following equipment at home:
sandbag that i can adjust from 35-145lbs
2xAdjustable dumbells with 4x10, 4x5, 4x2.5
power rings that i have not put up yet
I am willing to purchase more, but only have a 1 car garage so i cant convert the whole garage into a gym.
I’ve done a little bit of cross fit in the past to supplement my work outs, but I am not a big fan of the haphazard workout planning. With out a plan, it feels like just working out/exercising instead of actually training (much the same way you see people go to the local golds gym and wander from machine to machine randomly and then wonder why they dont see any progress).
I’m struggling with changing how I think about training. Does any one have any resources they could share, or tips for developing a program with what equipment I have? Like I said, I’m willing to buy more, but i dont have the funds or space for a squatrack, and as it is i have to pull the wifes car out of the garage to do anything. I’d like to come up with/find 2-4 home workouts using the equipment i have and bodyweight, that I can rotate through. Then after 4-6 weeks, change the programs a little bit much the way I have done in the past.
Thanks in advance for all the help!
