Making your garage the get away gym is easy, fun and doesn't need tons of equipment to get a good workout. Neither does your hotel room.
By utilizing a few simple tools you can feel just as good and be just as fit as the gym rats who waste so much time.
The tools below are just right for you. All you need to do is use the equipment and get moving. Its simple!
Equipment hacks for a home bodyweight workout
1. Body: You're thinking, duh! But whether it be walking, sprinting, climbing stairs, plyometrics or doing a push-up routine, you need your body. You can become extremely fit with just yourself as the piece of equipment.
2. Stability ball: Who needs a workout bench when you can use a stability ball to activate more muscles. Push ups, bent over rows, bicep curls, lunges, and triceps extension are all great candidates. Get those stability muscles working.
3. Pull-up bar: The pull up bar is a great tool for your home gym. Because you may sit slouched over all day, you need to strengthen your back. What's a better exercise to do this?
Extra tools for variety. Spice it up.
Bands: Not only do you have more resistance throughout your exercise motion, they're also incredibly convenient. Just think how easy these are to throw in your luggage.
Dumbbells: If you want to step your game up, pick-up a pair of Bowflex SelectTech dumbbells (affiliate). These are the best and only larger investment you should make for your home gym. You can do all your bodyweight workouts with more resistance.
Weighted vest: This tool adds more difficulty to your push-ups, plyometrics and pull-ups. Not essential but nice to have.
Throw away the Shake Weight, Hawaii Chair and Abdoer Twist. These aren't pieces of equipment, they are junk and a waste of your time.
By utilizing the simple tools mentioned you can have the body of your dreams. Sounds silly, but it's true.
