Where Should You Store Weights at Home?
Lifting weights at home offers more than just convenience. Sure, being able to lift weights whenever you want, regardless of time of day, is conducive to sticking to your routine. But having your own set up at home will also save you money on gym membership fees and transportation costs. And for those who feel self conscious exercising in front of other people, a home gym offers a sense of freedom that can be hard to find when surrounded by buff and experienced bodybuilders. If there is a drawback to having a home gym, it’s probably having enough appropriate space. Proper storage system can help. But where should you store weights at home?
