to build a great body at home?
not go a million dollars to the gym
One of the most common misconceptions I hear is that you must have a gym membership in order to have a great physique. While this is true to a certain degree, the opposite is also true. What matters the most is your intensity level and your overall commitment to your program.
Should you hire a personal trainer?)
In fact, most people (including many prominent bodybuilders) started
home. Working out at home is very private and can often help you gain more confidence on your own. Not only that, it saves time and money in the long run. The money you spend on a 12 month gym membership will easily pay for the equipment you need to get great results at home. Below is a list of things you will need:

200 pounds of free weights, either iron or cement
1 barbell either 6 or 7 feet long (40Lb
Standard Barbell Set)
1 chin-up/pull-up bar (Non-Adjustable 48-inch wide
Wall-Mounted Pull-Up Bar)

newspaper or on eBay! There are plenty of people who don't use them. This proves the point that I made earlier on; it's all about dedication.
Getting in shape doesn't have to be expensive or inconvenient.

It might also be wise to purchase a mirror for your workout area. This way you will be able to pose and also watch your exercise form.
Posing in the mirror not only gives you a visual indication of your progress it also serves to motivate you. When you are pumped you look awesome! With regards to form you might think you are doing an exercise correctly but in reality you could be way off.
It might also help to have a
friend, family member or training partner watch you a few times. On that note, I must also address safety. It might be wise on the heavier lifts to have a training partner. Exercises like
bench presses and squats can make you nervous if you are alone. This can therefore hinder your
