1. Pull Up Bar

Imagine being able to do pull-ups from anywhere in your home. Well, with a portable pull up bar you can do just that. The versatility of these products means that you can use it in the garage until you’ve set up a dedicated room in your home for gym activities. Or, even take it outside in the warmer, summer months to keep cool while working out. Either way, this can be a much cheaper alternative to a gym membership that will keep your arms, shoulders and back looking ripped. pu

2. Rowing Machine rowing Picking up a rowing machine can be pricey, but definitely worth it. What could be better than exercising and getting toned while sat down? A quick burst on the rowing machine can work wonders. Stick it in your garage, out of sight and just hop on when you’ve got half an hour to spare. These machines work your back, shoulders, biceps and pecs. So, you’re dealing with a lot of muscle groups here. If you are looking for some rowing workouts here are some great ones:text rowing

5. Dumbbells

Waiting for the dumbbells at the gym can be a nightmare. Everybody wants the same set and once you’ve nabbed them you feel pressured to rush your workout. This doesn’t have to be the case. Get yourself a set of dumbbells for the home that are adjustable.
Any exercise you can do with a kettlebell you can do with a dumbbell. IMO you can also do other things with dumbbells that are not easy with Kettlebells. Love these things.
