You can reach great strength, leanness, and cardio goals with proper strength-training done at varying paces and intensities. The big problem -  most "home gyms" are useless because they do the wrong things. (There's one in the last picture above)  Real results demand major pushing, pulling, lifting and squatting multi-joint movements, while the design type above offers largely feeble isolation, and therapy-style exercises.

One answer -  use a classic power rack.  It permits all the great exercises, with self-spotting safety built in. There's one in the second-last picture.  But there can be a problem here too - the rack has an operating width - beyond the ends of the required 7+ foot bar - of ten feet at least.  In many homes this is too much space.  

The Solution

A set of adjustable dumbbells, and kettlebell(s), a uniquely versatile bench, a high and low cable set up, and a few accessories, give you the variety and versatility of a commercial gym.  With high-quality execution, in a very small space.  Here's how.

  1.  A pair of 75 lb Ironmaster Quick-Lock Dumbbells, which give you the equivalent of 15 regular pairs between 2 and 34 kg (75 lb),  which including cabinet takes less than 2 feet square. Fast change - a partial turn of a (patented) screw, interlocking plates.  Feel like regular dumbbells, but better.  And a kettlebell handle that does the same thing  - 15 kettlebells between 10 and 26 kg.  A bigger range of compound and isolation exercises, from a small a set of tools, doesn't exist.  Check the inventory of exercises on the tab at the top. Note - the dumbbells can be upgraded to 54 kg per side. (120 lb), and the kettlebell to 36 kg.  Important features of the kettlebell handle are the slightly-rough, perfect one-hand or two-hand grip; smooth bell surface for your skin. The bolt doesn't get anywhere near your hand.  There's one kettlebell handle with this offer. Videos below.
  2. But you really need a tough (450 kg and 270 kg for flat and incline loads, respectively) versatile bench.  Goes to any angle, incline/decline.  The Ironmaster Super Bench offers patented foot operation. Movable (3 position) seat that stays perpendicular to the back so you never slide off.  Removable for flat bench use. Comes with a wide variety of attachments:  Crunch Sit UpDip Bar HandlesChin Up BarPreacher Curl Bar, and Leg Curl/Leg Extension AttachmentYou receive the Crunch Sit Up with this offer, because the bench permits such extreme decline angles, you need help to get up!  Great  also for crunches and decline presses etc.  This offer includes wheels.
  3. While the super compact dumbbells cater for all of the big pushing and lifting exercises, the cable tower offers major variety in the pulling/rowing and functional strength area. These include lat pull-downs (the only thing of value the "home gym" in the last picture does) cable rows in many angles and planes, a big range of abdominal twists, crunches, chops, and all sorts of isolation exercises for the legs, arms and shoulders. Videos below.
Summary
This combination brings the biggest variety of the best real strength exercises for a small space, with tools designed for their best execution, and which are high capacity: dumbbells to 34 kg per side - an indestructible bench - a cable tower that takes the dumbbells as resistance.  (Your 68 kg of dumbbells gives a full 68 kg of gravity on this)  or 110 kg if you use plates.   And there is a wide array of further heavy duty add-ons below.

Ironmaster is a Seattle, Washington, family company that's been in business thirty years, and has a superb reputation that's genuinely verifiable.  (Not to be confused with very similar trade names)  Ironmaster equipment doesn't break.
