Finally got a couple of posters for my home gym. No more bare walls!
Some people have suggested that I get posters of girls in bikini. But nah, there's no value in that.
I was thinking of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Franco Columbu or Bruce Lee posters. I even thought about picking up some mirrors for my home gym, either some used sliding closet door mirrors or huge gym mirrors that sometimes show up on Kijiji.
But I finally decided on these:
If I’m going to have a poster hang on my wall in my home gym and look at it all the time, I might as well learn something. I figure if I see these diagrams all the time, it’ll be a lot easier remembering the muscles, bones and ligaments.
The Muscular System Poster
The muscular system giant chart measures 42” wide x 62” high…which is almost as tall as I am!
It’s pretty durable, and I can write on the surface with a dry erase pen if I wanted to.
There’s 3 holes at the top of the posters to make it easy to hang. I only used the center hole to hang on a nail, and used a pair of neodymium magnets to hold the poster onto the studs in the wall.
The Skeletal System Poster
It measures 16.5” wide x 22.5” high, which is a lot smaller than the muscular system chart. Maybe I’ll upgrade to this giant skeletal system chart in the future.
The lettering is in rainbow color for some reason, and there’s a blue cloud border, but for $1.50 (so cheap!) it really doesn’t matter.
Now, I can lift and learn at the same time.
I’ve already learned something from these anatomy posters. Did you know that the “deltoid ligament” is in the ankle? I would have thought it would be located somewhere near the deltoid muscles (AKA shoulder muscles)!
My other wall is still bare, so I might get:
- Strength Training Anatomy Poster Series by Frederic Delavier
- MobilityWOD posters from Rogue Fitness
- Or maybe a Dim Mak chart to learn pressure points…just in case I need to perform the death touch in order to defend myself.
