Muscle-Building Workout and Diet

Hey you guys! Welcome to my side of the
garage. I’m not sure if you guys have ever seen what the garage looked like before, but it was kind of ugly, dark, dingy, didn’t really have much color or
personality, and that’s not me. So as you can see we’ve done a little bit of revamping and brightening it up more towards my style. So I’m gonna take you
through what we’ve done and some of the equipment that I have in here. To start off over here, I have the treadmill and I’ve had this since we turned my
half of the garage into a gym. I use this every day, um, when I come to
work out to warm up, cool down, do my cardio, if I don’t go outside to do
cardio. And I’m lucky enough to have a TV on the wall! To help with the music
or to watch something on TV if I’m gonna be out here for a while. Um, I have this
nice mirror, which I actually found on Craigslist for like 25 bucks, which was a
great steal. So this used to sit down on the ground before we did the remodel or
reviving of this half of the garage and now we’ve hung it up. So that’s nice you
have to worry about it falling over. I’ve got my box step, my box jump down
here and then I’ve got my little bucket that I have for my jump rope, my round
resistance bands, you know my sliders, all of that kind of little equipment I just
keep right here in this bucket. Ankle weights. I’ve got my foam roller
and then I’ve got this nifty contraption. I’ll have to do a review on this
sometime, but it’s called the Activmotion Bar. It really helps a lot with your
balance. Okay, so then one of the new pieces of
equipment that I got when we revived this half of the garage was these new
dumbbells. I used to have just one dumbbell set and it had different plates
on it. I every time I’d want to switch the weight I’d have to unscrew
the end off, put a new plate on, and then screw it back on. Which really made it
kind of hard to do drop sets or anything like that. I’d really just kind of stick
to one weight for a particular exercise. So I got this Hex dumbbell set right
here, which goes all the way from 5 up to 25 pounds. Which is really easy. It’s nice,
it came with its own little stand. Then underneath down here I’ve got my son’s or dumbbells and stuff like that. So if he’s out here with me he can have easy access to it. Then I’ve got my medicine balls lined up across here, all nice and neat. My kettlebells, same way. Then over here I’ve got my Bosu ball. And the big, new piece of equipment that we got is the Marcy Diamond Elite Smith
Press Machine. So I’ll be doing a review over this on another video, but I absolutely love this machine, because the machine I had beforehand only had four
different stations. Which I’d have to modify those four different stations to
do particular exercises. Which wasn’t really safe all the time, but I
made sure I did it slow and easy just make sure I wouldn’t get myself hurt. Then one piece of equipment that I forgot, is I have this piece of metal on
the wall that I can adjust up and down to use my resistance bands. Which is nice, because I can go all the way up here to work upper body or all the way
down to the bottom to work lower body. Okay! So now for the wall! Okay, so I absolutely
love this wall. It was my husband’s idea to use shiplap. And that’s what we did. We just took plain raw shiplap and I picked out five different paint
colors that I liked and that I wanted, and so, as you can see we did two
different colors of purple, two different colors of gray, and black. And it took
about three days of painting to paint all of these pieces of shiplap and then
about another day, day and a half to get it up on the wall. We use the nail
gun and some wood glue to make sure it stayed up there. We painted the ceiling a
light gray, just to kind of get that yellowish taupe color that was in the
garage kind of out of here, and to tie into the wall. And then on the floor, the
matting is not the typical fitness mats that you see at, like, you know, like
Dicks or Academy or Walmart or something like that, that they sell. This is cattle mats from Tractors Supply. I could get a lot more for this square footage, for a cheaper price and they last a lot longer. So I really really like them and
they’re pretty easy to clean. So this is my half of the garage. If you guys have
any questions or comments please let me know. I’d love to explain more and I will
be doing some reviews on a lot of this equipment
that I have out here that I took you through this video. I hoped you liked it! Also, I’m
gonna put links below the video of the equipment and stuff that I have here, in
my home gym, in case you’re wondering what it is and you’d like to make your
own home gym or have some at your house. Also, make sure to comment if there’s
something that you have a question about or you have a suggestion or idea on
something that I could do more in here. I’d love to hear your ideas. And then also, make sure to subscribe for future videos that I’ve got coming out. Peace! Ready? Hey guys, welcome to my garage…

  1. How has your experience been with your treadmill in the garage? I mean, does it not get cold (and malfunction)? Just curious!
