Home Gym

I am such a lucky girl
- I got a home gym from K Mart for $118 and it is fantatic. Especially as it has leg extensions, decline bench and lat pulldown which I could never do at home before. This is the actual model
On top of that I got a spin bike for the amazing price of $63. Add that to my weights, barbell and dumbells I already had and I am set for under $200.
Nothwithstanding the fact that it took about 30 minutes to put the bike together and over 3 hours to assemble the gym - it was an excellent bargain. I am very pleased.
Was excited to get up this morning and workout. Did a full body workout of single heavy sets alternating upper and lower.
If your interested it looked like this
- squats
- lat pulldown
- lunges
- incline chest press
- pelvic thrusts with feet on bench
- decline sit ups
- military press
- tricep dips
then intervals on the bike
- 4 min warmup
- 4 min steady
- intervals 20 : 40 secs x 6
- recover 2 mins
- intervals 60 : 60 sec x 3
- cooldown
Feel great - YAY home gym!!

    Wow great bargains!

    I got my treadmill from Target for $600 a couple of years ago, its a good one so was well pleased!

    I feel tired just reading your list of what you did, sadly I still hate exercise so I admire those who like it :)

    Nice job on your weight loss, good for you!
