Equipment that you will need as a bare minimum to have a good and appropriate workout at home.
Here’s the list!
Today I’ll be sharing with you what are the main equipment that I get most of my clients who never have any exercise equipment at home to start having.
It’s good enough to have a whole range of exercises to do with these equipment from beginner to advanced individuals.
Of course, you can have more than these listed and fancy gym equipment at home, but I find mostly these equipment that I’ve listed are generally enough for any clients that come to me for any type of rehab.
Can you do strengthening without any of these equipment? It will be very difficult. Surely there are bodyweight exercises that you can do but if you are injured or are in pain, body weight exercise is probably not the best or most appropriate to start with.
It’s either your weight or nothing in between, hence it’s difficult to prescribe any appropriate exercise for individuals when they don’t have any sort of strengthening equipment to help them rehab.
Strengthening is all about progression. If the resistance band or the weight doesn’t change you don’t get stronger. You always have to start light and work your way up, exercise progression can change as quickly as every week or as slow as every couple of weeks. Starting with a weight that is suitable for you now might not be the case any more 2 weeks later.
Hence exercise that you find useful to eliminate your discomfort in the beginning, you might not feel the same benefit after doing them for a month. Hence it is important that you have some sort of equipment at home that will allow your progression for the exercises that you are doing.
The appropriate weight, with the appropriate repetition at the appropriate time of your rehab and it changes as your symptoms get better.
Keeping in mind these tips/advice are of general nature and do not take your injuries/history into considerations.
