It’s common to believe you need lots of fancy gym equipment to train strength and conditioning effectively…

You don’t!

To carry out World-Class training, you’ll only need a minimal amount of training equipment. It’s how you use them that makes all the difference.

All you need is at least the following items…

  • Barbell and plates
  • Dumbbells
  • Squat rack
  • Weight bench
  • Somewhere to do chin ups
  • TRX suspension trainer (or similar)
  • Ideally, some kettlebells too.

Barbell & Weight Plates

Eventually with plates totalling up to 2x your body weight, but you certainly won’t need that much to get started!

Dumbbells

Various pairs, depending on how strong you are.

Squat Rack

Just a simple squat stand like the one shown is just fine. If you have access to a more sturdy power rack, then even better… you’ll usually get a pull up bar with those too.

Weight Bench

A flat bench is all you need. An incline bench will give you even greater flexibility in the future.

Somewhere To Do Chin-Ups/Pull-Ups

A chin up bar is awesome, but anything you can hang from will work just fine.

TRX Suspension Trainer (or similar)

Any suspension trainer is ok, it doesn’t have to be an expensive TRX!

Ideally – Kettlebells

Although strictly speaking, we can get away with just using dumbbells, having some kettlebells will make things easier.

Everything I discuss in my Optimal Fight Camp Blueprint can be achieved using just this equipment.

If you want to set up you own gym at home this year, this is what you’ll need!
