When you first make the decision to begin weight training, it can seem a little overwhelming. Especially when you begin to look at the weight training equipment required and begin pricing various weight machines. It will probably seem cheaper to go to a gym, or easier not to start weight training at all. But it does not have to be an overwhelming, cost prohibitive, or confusing experience. In fact, you don’t even really have to leave the comforts of your own home. You can easily create a private gym for yourself that fulfills your weight training needs without breaking the bank on weight training equipment.
You will need to start with a weight
The next piece of equipment is the weights. You can get a set of dumbbells that has a variety of weights, from something relatively light for beginners, to heavier dumbbells for more advanced users. You will also need a weight bar, as well as free weights to put on the bar. Remember the bar itself could weigh as much as fifty pounds, and keep that in mind when you are selecting your free weights.
