Home Workout Versus Gym Workout

Hallo und Willkommen to German EfficiencyTraining.

I'm your trainer Sean aka.

German Efficiencyand today I want to talk about what is better, home workouts versus gym workouts? I know it's a little bit biased, I am standingin a gym right now so you kind of know what I am going to say.

However, hear me out first.

Home workouts versus gym workouts which oneis better? Pretty much the simple answer is:If you have access to the gym, make use of that equipment that you have and go to thegym.

But also let's have a quick look at home workouts.

What are they good for? Are they really terrible? Should you always skip them? All of these things.

Let's have a quick look at that.

Home workouts have the benefits of you obviouslynot having to pay any money.

Typically you don't need necessarily equipmentat home.

You can do a lot with your body weight.

You don't have to travel anywhere.

So time-wise it's not such a big commitment.

And you are at the comfort of your home.

So you can pretty much do what you want, andyou don't have to feel ashamed or anything.

There is essentially no barrier to entry whenit comes to home workouts.

These are pretty much the major benefits ofhome workouts right from the get go.

However, they have downsides too.

If you don't have access to the proper equipmentyou pretty much can not challenge your body enough for it to trigger adaptation so forit to get better.

So if you just getting started, you can getaway with a lot of doing push-ups, doing sit-ups and you are going to benefit a little bitfrom it.

However, that is not the most efficient andeffective way for you to grow.

You are going to get some adaptation.

You're going to get a little bit of growthbut it is not the most efficient, most effective way of growing.

If that's your goal, if that's what you wantto achieve.

If you have access to the equipment, you couldalways achieve better results, right from the get go.

Right from day one.

You have to be really aware of that.

If you look at high-intensity workouts thatyou typically do at home, so pretty much workouts where you pitch your heart-rate high up, andyou keep it elevated for a short amount of time.

Rest for a short amount of time, and thenyou do that once again over and over again.

You could potentially get into dangerous territory.

Especially if you're not used to it.

Now if you ask me, high-intensity intervaltraining or high-intensity workouts they are easy to do at-home, correct.

That is a good thing, however at the sametime.

If you're just getting started they can besuper dangerous, because you have no relation to what it actually means to increase yourheart rate.

And is it actually necessary for you to increaseyour heart rate by that much? Again, if you ask me.

I say "no".

Throughout my entire fitness lifetime, I havenever really done that consistently as a workout.

That's not how I got fitter and I think Iam in good shape cardiovascularly right now.

And I am also in good shape just musculartoning, and definition-wise.

So I don't really see the need for me to doit.

If I look at the studies about it, it seemsto give you some benefit in terms of muscle definition but that's obviously quiet limited.

Once again, you do not get enough additionalresistance you would need to really consistently grow at highest efficiency and highest effectiveness.

At-home workouts, they can be good if youdon't have access to the equipment, you don't have access to the gym, it's better than doingnothing.

For the most part.

It's good if you are travelling, where youdon't have equipment and you want to do a couple of push-ups.

It's good for that, so just go to the hotelroom.

All of that home workouts are good for.

Gym workouts on the other hand, let's havea quick look at those.

Why are they so much better? Well once again, first of all.

You have the equipment that you need to properlystimulate muscular growth, or body adaptation.

When I am talking about growth, I am not justtalking about big, huge guys.

That's not really what I am here for.

I am always looking for more definition, Iam looking for improving myself.

However I am not here to become the next bigbodybuilder.

If you're looking for that maybe somebodyelse can give you better advise.

However I'm looking for a practical approachto consistently improve your definition and your body composition.

Gyms are not that expensive anymore, theyare pretty affordable throughout the country and internationally.

I started in Germany at a cheap gym, I livenow in the US and there are tons of cheap gyms over here as well.

And typically you have access to universallythe equipment you need.

You don't even actually need that much equipment,pretty much all you need is a good bench.

Ideally a decline bench.

Some dumbbells, maybe barbells, and maybea squat-rack as a bonus.

But not even that you necessarily need.

As long as you have dumbbells you can createsome good resistance and that's pretty much it.

So you don't need the craziest gym, the fanciestgym, you don't need any of the extras necessarily.

If you want that, go-ahead, go for it, howeverI say that should not be the deciding factor on if you join the gym or not.

For gym workouts you have access to the equipment,you can get started from day one.

You don't have to waste any time especiallyif you follow along on this channel and you know what you need to do when you go to thegym.

Gym workouts from day one, give you betterresults.

Hopefully that help answer that very commonquestion: home workouts versus gym workouts which one is better, which one should youdo? If you have questions, please let me know.

Again please understand that I am not fullyagainst home workouts, however I am always focused on what is most efficient and mosteffective and gym workouts definitely outrank home workouts in that regards.

Hopefully that helped you, I'll see you inthe next video.
