What's a Home Gym? I mean, is there a specific device you're discussing, because the name is extremely broad.
I'll tour my friend's office again soon, we'll see if there is a place he can row off of. His condo is small, so getting an apparatus in is out of the question, there's no room. No exposed pipes or bars or anything of the sort. Walls are either thin or extremely solid, so wall mounting stuff is a problem (either it'll break off, or it's drilling into outer walls of the building complex. Think "small, modern apartment with 2 adults and an infant." Worse comes to worst, I may have to get him to buy a dumbell set (expensive here but small and available) so he can do one-arm dumbell rows plus pushups and squats. But I was hoping to keep to the three simplefit exercises for him, especially because doing a proper dead-hang pullup is something he specifically mentioned as a goal. It's just a matter of a place to hang from three days a week...and with the summers here being very wet and hot and the winters being long and snowy, outdoors is not a long-term option.
And thanks, I'll pass the "good luck" wishes onto my buddy.
