    Lightbulb Working Out at Home

    Hello,

    I have been searching through the various posts in this forum but i was wondering if someone could help me with my situation. I currently own 2 dumbells (30lbs each) and one of those Power Twister bars: http://images.allegrocentral.com/8E/...DIUM_IMAGE.jpg <<< My Dad gave me this lol. My home set-up is basically those 3 pieces of equipment and a yoga mat for the floor. I currently do not own any other equipment. I do not go to the university gym simply becaue it is ridiculously small for the amount of people who use it and thus it has wait times for every machine, unfortunately. I was wondering if someone could give me advice on excercises that i could do. I am just looking for other ideas to work various groups of muscle with the equipment specificed. I would like to know how to work my chest more than the obvious bench press because i cannot do Flys with 30lbs in each arm. As well for the back because i am unable to do back extensions either, because of the weight. Any other cool ideas you guys/girls can think of. And also triceps what to do for them?

    I am open to any suggestions, critcism, or comments you wish you throw at me.

    Thanks

    Welcome to the forum mate.

    With your equipment you will be quite limited.
    There is a few dumbell and barbell ( home based ) workouts on this site, in this section:

    Is there any way you could get access to a gym?
    If you only have two 30lb dumbells you will most likely run into some complications, such as the weight being too heavy for certain exercises, and for others you may find it too light.
    Consistency is the key

    Are they adjustble dumbbells? If they are I suggest you buy a small range of weights for progression and different exercises.
    You can also do a few things with bodyweight, dips, pushups, crunches pullups ect.

    Welcome to the Forum. I train at home as well. You can buy equipment over time that stores easily.

    Adjustable DBLs, Weight Plates, and a Fold up Bench are all you really need to get a good WO.

    There is a complete list of WO's here with videos that show proper form and technique.

    Triceps with DBLs

    Diet is very important so read all of this:

    http://www.muscleandstrength.com/for...questions.html

    Most of all try to do a Complete Full Body WO including Legs. DBL Squats to be specific.

    Here is the DBL Only Split by Frankoman
