Hello T-Nation! I have been a lurker for the past six months that I have been working out and this site has been a great resource for me. Unfortunately I have hit a problem when it comes to working out. I am in a situation where I will be very poor and not near any gyms for the next six months until my new job begins.
But luckily enough for me a friend of mine gave me a bar, 400 pounds of weight and two adjustable dumbbells.
I have a bench but no sort of support for bench pressing/squatting, and the plates dont really work out in a way that would allow me to use both at the same time with even weight.
Is it possible to progress from where I am at with a barbell, only being able to use one dumb bell at a time and a bench?
I can do a lot of things with this setup but I am mostly worried about legs and chest.
With just a bar and one dumb bell I can easily take care of my back/hamstrings/biceps/triceps/shoulders but I am worried about my legs and chest. Anyone have any ideas for me?
I would like to progress until I can afford a gym membership in six months time.
Stats if useful:
19 year old male.
200x5 bench press.
Also if possible cheap bulking food ideas would be very much appreciated!
Thanks in advance for the help!
