What's the minimal amount of equipment I need if I want to lift at home to get a Zyzz-tier body instead of a gym due to social anxiety or whatever
Hard mode: no drugs
I have some bad news for you m80
>people can look at Zyzz's before and after pics and think that's doable natty when he roided hard for 4 years straight
because he was on juice and some fat burner and shit and just went into a sauna
he also never did cardio + had heart problems
dude didnt give a fuck and paid the ultimate price
no ability for progression.
OP recently i went to sports authority with interest in starting a home gym, so i can maybe chime in on this.
for $300 i got a 45lb barbell (not a great one, but with a little lube and love, i was able to set a PR on my babby weight snatch) and 335lb additional weight.
if you set the weight down on all your lifts (no excuse not to, as nothing you are lifting will be heavier than your deadlift, and you should always set your deadlift down - catching a clean in the hang position then setting it down is not that hard tbhfam) you don't even need a bumper platform or bumper plates..
just a floor.
that will allow you to OHP (by cleaning the weight up to the rack position), floor press, and deadlift.
following an actual routine.
for squats you will be fucked, but you can definitely clean some weight and then front squat it.
much much better than nothing.
also changing your foot position on hip thrusts can strongly target either your hamstrings or your quads (closer to your body for hams, farther away for quads).
you won't look like zyzz, but it is probably the best way to make natty gains on a budget.
looking back on it now, i am kinda regretting not having done this last year... feel like my gym subscription was a waste... but the access to cable machines was nice.
Check amazon. Also note these are aint power cages. Squat stand / simple chinese rack. Obviously not the best solution, but lightyears ahead of nothing.
Most of these guys are meant to take over 150kgs.
