This blog is part 2 of our original blog, which goes over the range of exercises possible with home gym equipment. All our equipment is super easy to set up and get training instantly, so check out down below to see what you can accomplish with our equipment.

Exercise 1: Dips

Using the specific dip bar attachment, which is very sturdy, performing the dip exercise has never been easier. One huge benefit of this dip bar, in your home gym, is that you can change the height of the adjustment. In a public gym, the dip bars are usually fixed at a specific height, which may be too short or too tall for you. To achieve the best range of motion, adjust the dip bars to a height where you can perform the dip without your feet touching the floor.

Exercise 2: Pull Ups

Another bodyweight exercise which you can perform on our power racks, is the Pull ups. You can perform wide grip or short grip pullups, to target separate areas of your physique. Being able to perform pullups without being in the way of people waiting for the cables is a great luxury. If you’re on the heavier side, we’d recommend attaching some weights to the power rack when performing pullups, to minimise the movement of the power rack on each movement!

Exercise 3: Shoulder Press

The barbell shoulder press is a great exercise which makes it easy to progressively overload weight onto your shoulders. This exercise is performed within the power rack, using a bench. Thanks to our strong safety bars you do not need to worry about failing a set, simply lower the bar onto the safety bars if you’re struggling. Remember to always warm up before performing any exercise, but the shoulder press as you’ll likely be dealing with a heavy weight!

Exercise 4: Romanian Deadlift (RDL)

The RDL has been recently added to my leg day routine, as it’s a great exercise for targeting your hamstrings and glutes. This can be performed with dumbbells or with a barbell as seen in the image below. Remember to keep your back straight and allow your legs to do the work as opposed to your biceps/triceps.
