Top 5 Home Workouts From The Forum!

Not everyone can afford to join a gym or afford to purchase multiple machines for a home gym. So how do you get in a good workout without the fancy equipment? See what the Bodybuilding.com forum has to offer.

Not everyone can afford to join a gym or have a home gym where they can purchase multiple pieces of equipment or tons of dumbbells. If this is you, then you fit in with a large number of people and aren't alone. However, I bet you are feeling like it is impossible to get in a good workout without all that fancy equipment and machinery.

Not true! You can get in a great workout right in the comfort of your own home by using your bodyweight or even some light dumbbells. Below you will find some great workouts that will be sure to kick your butt into shape!
