I knew I wouldn't go to the gym, so I started looking at home options. I was told I could work out every muscle group with some dumbbells. But getting a set of those was expensive! In my hunt, I discovered adjustable dumbbells. I didn't know that was a thing. I found an older model of a Weider 55lb adjustable dumbbell and got it. The newer model looks like this. I picked up a cheap workout bench on Amazon and I was on my way.
Now I had to find a program to follow. I wanted one easy enough for a beginner but could transition into something more difficult over time. I found this program online. I'm doing program one now and will build up to program three.
So far so good
I'm two weeks in now, and I like it. I can work at home with no one else around. I don't have to travel. I can start when it's convenient for me. Most importantly, doing this hasn't gotten in the way of pickleball.
