Home Gyms are good, but if you want to build muscle then you need free weights. You can't build muscle with home gyms like the Total Gym. You would do better with the Charle's Atlas Course. Actually there is nothing wrong with the Charle's Atlas Course, you can build muscle with it and you can save money, but it's just not as fun as pumping iron.
Calisthenics and isometrics is what Charle's Atlas was all about, and is the cornerstone of bodybuilding. It's also pretty hard to injure yourself by doing calisthenics. I've hurt myself many times throughout the past 30+ years pumping iron. I injured a vertebrae so bad that I had to get steroid shots and go to a chiropractor for six month.
