Most people like exercising. But sometimes it can be very expensive to join a gym regularly or to buy costly home gym equipment which you can’t afford. However there is a solution to this problem. If you are innovative you can create your own home made exercise equipment with the help of simple tools. As a result this equipment will be inexpensive than home gym equipment which you can find on the market.
Use pipes for creating home made exercise equipment
With the help of plumbing stuff, which you can buy in a local home improvement shop, and your creativity you will be able to make most of the home made gym equipment. It should be mentioned that you should take good quality stuff for your exercise equipment. For example, a chin up bar which you can hang up on the ceiling may consist of a small metal pipe connected together with a few nuts and bolts. Grips will be useful for doing push ups but if you do everything correctly you won’t need anything else but some smart piping. Such home made gym equipment will be as efficient as the equipment on the market.
Home made gym equipment for resistance training
If you watch the commercial you will probably be impressed of various home gym equipment flashed on television sets as "resistance equipment". But you should also know that it is quite expensive. That’s why instead of purchasing costly equipment you can create your own home made equipment that will also be beneficial and inexpensive. In order to perform isometric exercises you can take ropes and pulleys which are great tools for isometric training. They will oppose the muscles of your body while exercising. You should mount over the rope on the puller in a way that you can pull it through both ends in opposite direction. After that with the help of one arm you can pull it along while pulley provides stiff resistance to the other arm.
You can also use the other tools for preparing home made gym equipment such as rubber tubing and springs. Rubber tubing can be used for the same purpose as ropes and pulleys in order to create resistance. Rubber tubing is also beneficial for stretching. The method is the same: you should just pull it across both ends. Also at shops that sell off material for automobiles you can get springs which are also suitable for resistance training.
How to modify different tools in order to create home made gym equipment?
If you have a set of hand grips which are normally used for work off a spring, then you can try to strengthen the grip of hose clamp looped within the springs for gearing up for that extra bit in order to provide resistance. It will be beneficial not only for creating resistance but it will also save more money which you could spend in getting a new grip for the same purpose.
