think of the gym directly when they want to have a full body building
workout. But do you really need to go to the gym to have this?
The answer is no. At home, you can easily have a good full body
building workout either with body weight exercises or if you want
to get more serious, you can add a small home gym with only free
weights like dumbells, a bench and have a full body building workout.

Have at least
two dumbells with adjustable weights or if you have the space,
you can buy a dumbell rack for different dumbell sizes and weights.

up bars which you can easily fix without any bolts and drilling

you can achieve your exercise goals.
