The first thing is to figure out what success looks like for you. What are you looking for in a home gym?
*stuff I can use relatively easily
*I can sell relatively easily
*will actually allow me to work out
aerobic kind of power stuff - kettlebells seem to be the thing that everyone is going crazy over. you could also do bodyweight exercises and burpees to get started.
1 set dumbbells 25
1 set dumbbells 50
if i still could use more weight - 1 set dumbbells 80
1 set kettle bells 25
1 set kettle bells 50
exercise bicycle - properly adjusted
the main thing, though, is the work, and actually doing the work.
warm up well
stretch a lot afterwards
Another thing that would work would be to have a squat rack and plates. That is kind of the gold standard for leg workout stuff. I do not think I could do heavy deadlifts without that gear. Theoretically, you could do those with heavy kettlebells, but you could also injure yourself with any of those things.
Anyone have a home gym and workout routine that they find effective?
My stuff is mixed in with running during the day and strenuous interval training twice a week.
