So within a space of a conservatory, whats the best machine to have? for all parts of the body mostly arms,legs,chest.
Reasonable prices no £400+
The ones that I like the most are the treadmill and the cross trainer, out of those two I'd say the cross trainer does the most and it's a hard but good workout!
A bench, barbell, squat rack and some weights.
Best machine? I guess a squat rack kinda fits in to that category, so yeah, a squat rack.
A rowing machine is quite a good cardio and upper body workout? But to be honest get a pullup bar they are very good. And then for legs do squats etc.
You can pick up a complete set on ebay for £200-300 used. They're iron plates and stuff, who cares if they're a bit scuffed up.
Thanks guys, i want a mix of cardio and weights. So far i have a treadmill and dumb bells.
Think i will add a rowing machine or cross trainer and definitely a bench and barbell with more weights.
You don't need to spend money to do cardio. Running isn't less effective if you do it in the street. The opposite in fact.
The most useful single piece of home fitness equipment is a pull-up bar. But if you want to spend >£400, go for a squat rack and plates and you can use the rack to do pull-ups.
bench and squat rack with bar would cover you as others said but they take up alot of space imo (if you get decent ones)
IF the space and money of those was a problem id say just get dumbells and a pull up bar, combine the pull - up/chin up with some dumbell excersises (can realisticaly cover most of the body if not all)
and perhaps even bodyweight to assist
obviously its hard to do a dumbell bench or flies without a bench but you could find a wall in your garden or somin similar and use that (fitness doesnt have to be expensive)
Failing that you probably dont wana go to a gym but if you can afford upto 30 a month you will have your whole body covered, plus extra weights once you get to the max of your cheap set, and extra equipment if you fancy a change,
also liklihood of a pool or other facilities!
WTF do ppl need treadmills, do you have social anxiety or are really insecure or something that you cant go outside and run? especially in this time of the year.
