Top Three Pieces of Equipment for your Home Gym

Best Equipment Must-Haves For Your Home Gym Workouts

So you're in the market for some equipment to get your home gym started, but you’re unsure where to start. With an abundance of choices available, choosing the right home gym equipment can be a daunting process.

Luckily, we've teamed up with Again Faster to put together a list of the top three must-haves for any home gym. We laid out specific criteria to make sure you get the most bang for your buck, and these were:

  • Affordability
  • Versatility
  • Durability

With over a decade of experience supplying commercial gyms all over the UK, and a strong presence in the home gym industry, it’s fair to say the guys over at Again Faster know what kind of equipment can take a beating without sacrificing on performance and versatility.

Top Three Pieces of Equipment for your Home Gym

There’s a near endless list of things you could have in your home gym, but you have to start somewhere, right? So let’s get into the top three pieces of equipment to give you plenty of workouts to get going.

1 - Kettlebells

Hands down one of the most robust and multi-functional pieces of gym equipment has got to be the kettlebell - and that’s why it sits in our number one position. There is quite literally an endless catalogue of exercises you can do with these. So don't worry, you won't run out! Here are a few of the best ones:

Kettlebell Exercises

Kettlebells are great for those keen on keeping a consistent strength and conditioning regime. With lots of available weights on offer, there's boundless opportunity for progressive overload.

With quality-made kettlebells, you won't have to fret about getting a bit rough n’ tough in your training. Again Faster have a fantastic range of affordable and incredibly durable kettlebells which are made from single-piece iron casting, they’re designed to combine functionality with unmatched durability. Get your own set and you’ll soon find out why thousands of home gym owners agree on them being a must-have piece!

2 - Dumbbells

No home gym is complete without a set of dumbbells, so they deservedly sit in 2nd spot. Virtually all of the major compound movements that will bring you the most muscle gain can be done with dumbbells. Much like kettlebells, there's no limit to the number of exercises you can do with a set of dumbbells, and here are some of our favourites:

The Six Best Dumbbell Workouts

We recommend buying two pairs, one light and one heavy, to make sure you can broadly cover all bases. Whether for toning or building strength, a couple of pairs should have you covered. Or, you can go a step further and kit your home gym out with a full set to maximise your options.

Again Faster offers a stunning range of well-crafted hex dumbbells, featuring an end-to-end knurled grip for maximum grip and comfort.

3 - Adjustable Weight Bench

This list would not be complete without an adjustable bench. Often regarded as the Swiss army knife of lifting, the flexibility and lifetime value a quality bench provides you with is sure to set a concrete foundation for your fitness journey. The only reason it’s sitting down in third is that you do need to pair an adjustable bench with at least one or two more bits of kit to really unlock its potential.

You can isolate pretty much every muscle using an adjustable bench, helping you maximise growth and tone. Here are just a few of the best exercises you can do:

Best Bench Weight Exercises To Do At Home

A hard-wearing bench is a perfect companion for your set of dumbbells to help level up your home gym. Again Faster's adjustable gym bench showcases nothing short of phenomenal craftsmanship. The robust blend of durability and performance is what makes this bench one of the best sellers in the fitness community. It’s available in black and blue as well! A more than worthy investment for anyone looking to start taking home workouts seriously.

Final Words

It's no secret that nutrition is a huge slice of the fitness pie. Through countless research papers and clinical studies, it has been proven that to fully optimise muscle repair and growth, you should consume between 20g-40g of protein approximately 30-60 minutes immediately after a workout.

If you ever find yourself rushing to get that post-workout meal in, you might want to consider taking a protein shake with you to the gym - even if the gym is in your garage or spare room. Protein Package has got you covered, with a huge range of options and some truly mouth-watering flavours. Alternatively, Battle Bites are a favourite over at Again Faster HQ for a quick protein fix!
