7 Apartment Gym Workouts – Full Body Training with Limited Equipment

Many workout routines use a vast amount of equipment and machines. But those routines can only be done at big commercial gyms. They’re great because they allow more variety in the exercises, but going to such a gym isn’t always convenient or worth it.

For example, if your apartment block or your student housing has its own gym, you can save time and money if you go there. The same happens if you’re spending your holidays at a hotel or aparthotel and want to train.

And, of course, in the moment I’m publishing this post, we have the problem of lockdowns due to the coronavirus pandemic… In many places it’s forbidden to go to the gym or it’s become very uncomfortable, and more and more people are opting for buying minimal equipment and train at home.

I’ve created this 7 full body workouts so you can reap all the benefits from training, with limited equipment!

Each of them has 10 exercises in total, sometimes grouped into supersets or circuits.

Sometimes I say the barbell is optional because it can easily be substituted by dumbbells. You can also choose another handle for the cable machine if your gym doesn’t have the one stated.

The number of repetitions in unilateral exercises is by side.

*Some abbreviations used: BB (barbell), DB (dumbbell), RDL (Romanian deadlift).
