The (Little) Fitness Equipment I Use to Exercise at Home

EquipmentPic

My primary mode of training is bodyweight training.  This includes calisthenics (push-ups, pull-ups, etc.), running, sprinting, plyometrics (i.e. box jumping), stretching and so on.  I firmly believe that anybody can reach any fitness goals they desire with only their body weight as resistance.  This is why I train and develop exercise programs for others with only bodyweight exercises.

Using Bodyweight is The Most Economical Way to Train

You know what one of the coolest things is about bodyweight training?  It’s very, very economical.  Often, it’s free.

Yes, I can train in a gym, but I don’t need a gym.  In other words, I don’t have to pay gym membership fees.

That’s the luxury of bodyweight training.  You can do it at a gym, at home, at the park, at work…pretty much anywhere.  My personal preference is outdoors since I get the additional benefit of fresh air and sunlight.  Give me a playground and I’m good.

Hanging Arm Stretch - Great for stretching the arms, lats and "little lats"

If you train at home, you really don’t need much equipment either.  I do have a couple of things I use here and there myself, but most exercises such as planks, push-ups and sprints require no equipment at all.  Dips, chin-ups and pull-ups are a different story, which leads me to the point of this series of posts.

The Fitness Equipment I DO Have

Because I like to work out and I train others, I have invested in a few pieces of fitness equipment.  I personally don’t like to spend a lot of money (A.K.A. I’m cheap), so I try to buy only when – and what- I need to.  Below are links to posts I’ve done on other pieces of equipment I use for home training for those of you who are interested.
