why set up a home gym? and where to get the best deal in singapore. (part one)

30 Dec

sick of seeing clowns curling in the power rack? tired of waiting forever to use the bench press? feel like giving equipment hoggers who refuse to share stations a suplex?

in this tiny red dot, you don’t have much of a choice of serious gyms. by serious i mean dumbbells of up to at least 100lbs, at least 2 power racks and no machines.

yup, no machines. based on my observations in commercial and neighbourhood gyms, those with the widest variety of machines tend to attract the most clowns. that’s fine if you are there for a laugh but not good if you are trying to train.

the alternative would be to set up your own gym at home. if you can afford the space, this might be a more economical alternative to joining a commercial gym in the long run as your equipment is likely to out-last you.

watch this space. next post will detail the equipment, the price and where to get them. :)

    Wah wah best stunt from Donnie Yan. Hate clowns especially kids performing their best liken stunt “bicep curl” and nothing else inside a crowded gym. If I can master that suplex, I think I will be busy suplexing ppl in the gym : )

    Exercise, specially aerobic exercise, is a great technique to increase your energy. Aerobic exercise lets you preserve an increased heart rate by performing a series of moderate exercises for an extended period of time (15-20 minutes). Aerobic exercise will be as complex as a entire routine or as straightforward as swinging your arms at your sides – anything that gets your heart rate up and keeps it there for at the least 20 minutes.
