If you got:Squat stands (can get them cheap second hand) Resistance bandsPull up bar You'd be sorted for basically everything. Obviously a gym is better in the sense that you have all the equipment but training alone has so many pros. Also pleased to see you have a full length mirror in there for admiring your physique 😎

I'm gonna check out some YouTube vids on proper form in the coming days.Spent a little time in our gym today doing situps, pushups, squats, bicep curls probably and whatever you call it when you're on a bench and lift manuals straight up.Finally using our gym, so will try to do something there every day, even if it's just 10 minutes.It's not pretty and could def use some paint or refurbishing in general, but this is what our cheap home gym looks like.Importantly, and something you don't see in the pic, it has a TV so I can watch Seinfeld while exercising.Otherwise, it's got some second hand stuff in it. The treadmill was too heavy and complicated to get out, so was left there by the previous owners.Edit:Btw, thought I might try out these 3 (as well as other stuff):

But of course it's important to find any little way to keep up motivation and watching the beef grow might help with that 👍
