    Need help with a workout plan in my new apartment's gym

    Hello Everyone,

    I just moved to a new apartment and there’s a great fitness room with all sorts of equipment to use. The two most important ones I plan on using are the dumbbell sets and “Matrix” machine that allows me to do all sorts of exercises. I have attached some images to show what what the setup looks like.

    I used to do a lot of bodyweight fitness which was great for a while but I’d like to build more muscle mass. I’ve decided that I wanted to transition over to lifting weights. I've been doing a lot of research on workout routines and what exercises to do. However, all of the guides I’ve seen require exercises that I don’t have equipment for such as deadlifts and squats. I’m really confused as to how I should proceed since those kinds of exercises seem irreplaceable. Does anyone have any recommendations on what workout routine I can follow with the equipment shown in the album above? I plan on working out 3 times a week.

    If you need some background about my current physique I’m 5’7 and weigh 140 pounds. I’ve got a bunch of whey protein ready to go, all I need is the correct workout plan. I’m really excited to start my journey of becoming stronger. Thanks in advance!

    Fitness room doesn't sounds that great if it doesn't have a basic barbell and plates. You can do squat and DL variations with dbs, but if yours only go up to 50 you'll outgrow them pretty fast. Fierce 5 has a db-only program.

    Assuming you have other machines than those pictured, you can still get a good workout without squat and DL. But yeah, at some point you should just join a real gym and use your fitness room for bad weather days or cardio on off days.

    The Fierce 5 workout program sounds interesting, I will definitely check that out. Thanks!

    I would be very happy if I can get to 50 pounds on dumbbells, that will be my first goal. Once I do get to that point I can definitely go get a gym membership.

    In the meantime though I would love to make use of the dumbbells and Matrix machine in the fitness room. The only other machines in the room are for cardio, such as a bike machine and treadmill. With the tools I have available is there a good workout routine you can recommend without the squats and deadlifts? If not then Fierce 5 seems like the way to go.

    As a beginner, Fierce 5 novice db full body is a good fit (link below):

    It has db substitutes for squat and DL. Follow it as written and don't try to add volume. You can use the Matrix machine for certain exercise substitutes (pullups, cable reverse flies/face pulls, rows), but might be better to start out with all dbs until you get used to it.

    Awesome, I will definitely do that. Thanks so much for your help!
