My workouts have been amazing lately. (That's not to be confused with "I've been amazing at working out lately." They've been kicking my ass, actually. But that's what makes them good, right?)
I got some new stuff for the garage. This week, I've been putting it to good use, and last night I was able to incorporate it into a solid back workout.
My most recent workout was this weekend, with a couple goals in mind: Clean up a few particular movements, get in a good sweat, activate a bunch of muscles and have some fun with my training partner (my wife, who has also been sick and wanted to get moving as well).
Christmas and two fantasy football championships meant some new goodies for my garage gym.
At some point, motivation needs to go through some sort of conversion process, where it's refined into execution, for it to mean anything.
What gift should you give to the garage gym athlete in your life?
With limited floor space, I don't want to be cramming equipment into corners or tripping over it. This is a solution that maximizes the space I have.
Few home gyms have leg extension or press machines. Here's what I do instead for my workouts.
Borrowing heavily from Layne Norton's Power+Hypertrophy Adaptive Training (PHAT) routine, I began to set myself up for the coming month.
If there's one thing I think most home workouts miss, it's a good back routine, especially if you don't have any kind of weight equipment.
