Many people who do HeavyHands/Longstrength/Panaerobics/IsoTonoMetrics or some combination prefer to work out at or near home. Especially those doing “Longstrength Bodyweight” work want to know about replacements for Dr. Schwartz’ “Pan-X” machine.
Some replacements are “Suspension Trainers” or “Gymnastic Rings”, “Bariatric Walkers” (don’t get the ones with wheels!) and many other home made or relatively simple devices. But there may be other options you need to consider that you’d prefer.
One of the best resources for creating/improvising/setting up a home based workout environment is the ebook “Never Gymless” by Ross Enamiat.
It’s 230 pages covering many different types of exercise, possible workouts with no or minimal equipment, and how to train without an expensive gym.
All of his material at Ross Training is very low priced (usually under $13!) but densely packed with information, so you may wish to check out his other resources.
One caveat: From the “Panaerobics” perspective of Dr. Schwartz, Ross doesn’t speak “Panaerobics”… but as far as telling you how to build a home gym, he really can’t be beat! His training forum can be helpful from time to time too. You’ll just have to take his information and realize that to follow Dr. Schwartz’ prescription for exercise, you need to be working as much muscle mass as possible at the same time using all 4 limbs at one time if possible.
On the other hand, a simple set of $10 furniture sliders used for “Ab Rollouts” can be used to create a high intensity workout that exercises most of your arm, trunk, core, and back muscles in one movement. You could use an “Ab Roller” for this of course, but these sliders have other uses too. You might, for instance, be able to use them for “Jogging Longstrength Style” which can use sliders as well.
In other words, you never know where you’ll find some panaerobic inspiration when reading Ross’ work! Ross is a boxer by training so he certainly shares Dr. Schwartz’ interest in all around strength and endurance and knows how to build workouts that can help accomplish that when read with a discerning mind!
So check out this book if you’re trying to figure out how to set up a home gym for your workouts. There’s lots of interesting information there!
