Gym Equipment

Recommendations for a home gym

In most cases, a gym will have the equipment necessary to complete the ATP strengthening and flexibility sessions. If you are planning on building your own home gym or sweatbox, check out the recommendations below.

PULL-UP BARS

You have many options for pull-up bars. If you want a serious home setup with the ability to expand, then consider a squat stand. If you want minimal, portable, and inexpensive, then consider a pull-up bar that fits over the door.

DUMBBELLS

When picking adjustable dumbbells, I have had success with Bowflex and PowerBlock. In my opinion, PowerBlock is a more solid choice but Bowflex is more economical.

RESISTANCE TUBES AND HANDLES

The plans included in the APT app are designed for someone with one to two years experience in recreational racing, with the exception of the “Walk to 5K” plan. This plan is designed for someone new to running. The following are the included plans at this time:

The following are the tubes and handles I purchased based on my strength, so I could easily combine tubes to overload my body.

PLYO BOX

Your exercise program will require a step for you to jump onto when doing plyometric exercises. At first, you could use a step in your house or an old chair if you are not part of a fitness center. If you want to get fancy, the Stamina X Adjustable Height Plyo Box is a great choice because it is adjustable.

TRIGGER POINT BALL

When selecting a ball to use to work out trigger points, you have many options. Start with a tennis ball. If the tennis ball doesn’t hit the spot, then consider a harder ball, such as a TriggerPoint therapy ball or a lacrosse ball.

TRIGGER POINT ROLLERS

If you know you have a history of trigger points (aka muscle knots), then consider the TriggerPoint Therapy roller for durability. If you are new or find that you don’t need to use a foam roller, consider a more inexpensive foam roller made by Optp.
