+ Do I need to join a gym? What equipment is needed?

A basic gym membership is ideally recommended as this will give you access to the full range of equipment needed to execute the workouts exactly as outlined.

That said, training from home is a perfectly acceptable option as well if you have the right equipment available. In order to implement the plan from home with full effectiveness, you’ll need access to a set of adjustable dumbbells (along with enough weight to allow you to steadily progress in strength over time), an adjustable bench and a pull up bar. For those with the available space and who are looking to fully maximize their results, a barbell with weight plates and a squat rack would also be recommended.
