Want to dabble in working out but not quite ready to commit to a gym membership? Want the perfect gift for a #fitchick? I’m building my home gym one piece of equipment at a time. So far, this is what I regularly use and love:
Abs, arms, legs and back. You can do so much! Also, you can just use a towel on hardwoods. But, if you’re feeling fancy, here are the sliders I use. I’ll share workouts with these soon.
Great for glute work on a cable machine. I can never find this attachment at the gym. The one I linked above is fancy. I like that it doesn’t strap on your ankle because I’m a baby and I don’t like that scratchy material rubbing off my spray tan, ya feel me? But for those of you that don’t care, THIS is a great one, too.
I don’t know many girls that want rough man hands. Ewe. I have been through 4 pairs of Nike gloves and they always end up with holes in them. “Macy, why would you buy 4 sets of the same gloves that always get holes in them?” Because when you’re a brand-snob like me, you have to use everything nike or lululemon. I wanted them to be great, but they weren’t. So I use these and, turns out, non-brand name gear is just as good. Who knew?
You can only do one movement with this, but it is tough. You feel it after only a couple of reps. Works abs, chest and lats.
Planning is EVERYTHING. You gotta have the right containers. You can freeze, microwave and throw these in the dishwasher.
Don’t have that cash money for a massage? Foam rollers are (kind of) just as good. After you roll it out, make sure you drink plenty of water to flush out the toxins that have been released.
Jump rope 100x, 10 rounds. That’s a quick HIIT session for ya! (HIIT: High Intensity Interval Training – we’ll get more into this later.) This one is great because it’s adjustable.
Lemon water is so great for digestion. I’ve put berries in this, too! I love it.
