Ah January! Tis the season where many people are looking to switch up their exercise routine a bit. Not into the gym thing? I get you. I do all of my strength training at home and only go to the gym for spinning and swimming. Over the years, I’ve built up a nice assortment of equipment to keep me motivated and excited about my home workouts. Not sure where to start? I rely on a few of the same pieces of equipment over and over again. Sharing a few of my favorite pieces to Stock Your Home Gym for success. This post contains affiliate links.
Stock Your Home Gym With These Must Haves
Probably one of the most versatile pieces around! I use it for every workout for everything from deadlifts, to hop overs to pushups. They last forever! They even come in a cute pink color now too. Check out one of my Bosu workouts here.
I use both the figure eight and the long resistance bands for all of my Home Gym workouts. The figure eight band is perfect for resisted squats, butt kicks and side walks. The long band easily hooks onto a door or banister for rows and chest flyes. They are also great to travel with.
Another crazy versatile and very affordable piece of home gym equipment. I use mine for crunches and all kinds of ab work. I also use my stability ball as a unstable bench to do upper body work and planks.
Another extremely versatile and much used piece of equipment in my Home Gym. I like this medicine ball with side handles for squat throws and side lunges.
Don’t be afraid to have a set or 2 of heavier weights at home. I use a set of 15 or 20 pound weights for dead lifts off of the Bosu and walking lunges. You can also use one heavier weight for “goblet squats” and other variations.
These are a few of my Home Gym Must Haves. They have served me very well over the years and last forever. Tell me-What are your Home Gym Must Haves?
