In this article, we will show you how to add a home gym to Bodyspace. What does that even mean, you might ask? Well, that is the whole point of this write-up.
Anyone who has tried working out from home has had to face one major challenge: Lack of motivation. It can be quite tiresome to work out at home if you do not have sufficient self-motivation.
This is a big issue for many who prefer working at their home gym instead of professional gyms. Therefore, is there a way to tackle this issue? The answer might just be found in the Bodyspace app from Bodybuilding.com.
What is Bodyspace?
Bodyspace is an online fitness network and personal trainer app from Bodybuilding.com that allows you to achieve your fitness goals faster and easier. Apart from offering fitness tools, it is also a nutrition tracking app.
Bodyspace has tons of workout routines and exercises that you can incorporate in your home gym exercises. It allows you to create a workout template that you can follow.
This free app is available on Play Store and Appstore for Android smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy A30S and Apple devices respectively.
When a template is created and saved on the Bodyspace app, you can refer to it whenever you launch the app and continue with your workout progress.
However, we discovered that getting started and creating a template (a workout routine) has been challenging for most folks. That is the reason for this article.
Although you can use the mobile app on your Android smartphone or Apple phone to create a workout template, many have discovered that using the bodybuilding.com website is much simpler.
Therefore, we will show you in simple-to-follow steps how to create a Bodyspace workout template from the bodybuilding.com website.

Is Female Bodybuilding healthy?
Female bodybuilding is healthy when done right and carefully. If not performed carefully could be unhealthy.
Many women lose their feminine shape especially when anabolic steroids drugs are used. While some might be okay with their body shape changing, the side effects of such testosterone drugs on females include enhanced sexual activity, hirsutism, dry skin, and mood swings (including aggressiveness).
Apart from the above which can be avoided by not pushing the body beyond its limit and avoiding such drugs, female bodybuilders have a higher injury risk than male counterparts.
Other issues include the risk of being unable to have children as well as psychological issues with the chief among them being muscular dysmorphia.
