    This is more of a request to RJ team but comments and replies are welcome from other members.

    I have a stability/gym ball at home, a good set of dumbells and a yoga matt.

    I'm not able to go to the gym as much as i could because of my busy schedule.

    Can the RJ team please post a good Full-Body Alternative Work-out Plan based on this.

    Comment's from other members are most welcome.

    Sounds like a good idea, unless they dont have such workouts and it takes a lot to make them up, or there are so many possibilities that it isnt practical.

    It could be a whole new section: Alternative Workouts.

    Hey, that's what i have at home and got started with at the beginning of this year.
    I looked threw there 12 week plan and some other workouts on here and just picked out the ones that catered to the equipment that I have and put together a great routine for myself.
    There are some really good exercises on here and it really gave me the jump start i needed to get to where I am.
    I did go out and by a bench also...

    I'm in the same situation as you rolekz; I often work late and don't have time to go to the gym; so I set up one room in my house as a home gym. I work out pretty much with barbells and dumbbells and body weight routines.

    You can do most things at home that you can do at the gym with things like free weights, chin up bars, etc. and some ingenuity.

    The only thing missing is a spotter to help be safe during heavy lifting. I'm looking for a handsome "live-in" spotter and workout buddy if you would like to apply.icon_wink.gificon_lol.gif

    Dumbbell routines aren't all that unusual. I have a number of clients who travel extensively, and I put them on all-dumbbell routines because that's the one class of equipment they can expect to find at any gym in the country - or around the world, for that matter.

    Rolekz - you'd be better off, in my opinion, getting a good local trainer to design one for you AND show you how to do it safely and effectively. Workouts are not "one size fits all" - no matter how tempting the books and canned routines may be.
