A power rack is said to be one of the most important equipment for home gym. A lot of people prefer buying their own power rack instead of joining a gym.
Joining a gym does not happen to be a best option for a lot of people since gyms are overcrowded, you have to wait for some good time to grab a dumbbell. Also, if gym is not located near your place, travelling every day is not that easy.
A power rack in your home might save you time, will reduce cost (gym fee, traveling cost etc.) and it can be used by all the people living in your home.
Home Workout Program
A power rack, bench and barbells can let you do pretty much any type of exercise in home. Cage rack is one of the most used equipment in the world. Athletes and professional trainers use it extensively for exercise.
Below are some of the best workout programs that can be carried out easily in home via power rack and related accessories.
The most effective exercises are ones that involve multiple muscles. One easy way of getting most from your efforts is to focus on compound movements instead of less-effective workouts.
Always start your exercise with compound movements.
Some of the best compound workouts that you should focus on are:
- Bench press
- Squats (both back and front)
- Single-leg work
- Military press
- Skull crushers
You should include these workouts in your home workout program to make sure you are going in the right direction.
Supersets are extremely helpful in burning fat. Since most of the people use power racks and exercise to burn fat therefore it is a good idea to take minimal or no rest between exercises.
Idea is to move to next exercise right away after finishing the first one. This is though intensive and needs a lot of effort but you have to do it if you are serious about burning fat.
You should switch exercises too when doing supersets. For instance, do an upper body exercise and then immediately move to a lower body exercise without taking any rest and then move back to an upper body exercise and so on.
If you will keep switching exercises and muscles, it will help you putting in a lot of effort because your muscles relax when you switch exercises between supersets.
Exercises like bicep curls, calf raises and triceps extension should be done at the end as these exercises pump your muscles. Doing these exercises at the start or in the middle will ruin your stamina and you won’t be able to complete sets as these movements will fatigue your muscles.
Having a power rack and other equipment in your home will not help you much unless you make the right use of it. Even if you are doing exercise every single day but without a plan won’t make much of a difference. It is crucial to follow a proper workout plan so that you see results – immediate results.
