That's pretty much what I do. I have some PowerBlock dumbbells, a pull up, a yoga ball and an elliptical that I use for just about everything. I thought the extra cost of the PowerBlocks was justified by how little room they use.Jsw wrote:(In regards to your post)He's also a big advocate of going the cheapest route possible in terms of home-gym. His opinion is all you need is a set of used dumbbells and a pull-up bar. And his videos prove it.
If you live in a cold climate, a quality cardio machine probably wouldn't be a bad idea though.(Treadmill, Elliptical machine, Row machine).

This guy is absolutely ripped, and hasn't done a single bench press in 20+ years. He smashes a lot of the myths about bodybuilding and just fitness & healthy eating in general. Its full disclosure and 100% free. I've been following his work-out plans for about 3.5 months and I can tell you first hand it works.
He's a little goofy but if you can get past his voice and cheesy sense of humor, he has a ton of excellent advice and information.

I'd look for pinch points and destructibles on the weight machine and compare that to the free weights or adjustable dumbbells. Either way you'll probably have to teach your kids to keep away from the equipment. As a kid I remember monkeying around with several home gym/cardio machines (the row machines were the best) but didn't really play with any free weights I found. They don't look as much like play equipment as the home workout systems do. Moving parts = fun. Heavy stuff = not so fun.dgdave wrote:I'm probably going to grab this and a total gym. It has 200lbs of weight. My wife doesn't want free weights or dumb bells because she doesn't want the kids to get a hold of them.
