I currently own a treadmill, one of those machines where you sit and pull the bar toward you while pushing out with your feet (never use this machine), and I have a couple pairs of small dumbells, around 1-3lbs I think.
I would really like some good exercise items to have on hand at home. Preferably small things that can be easily stored...dont have much room for another big machine.
Ive heard a lot about kettlebells on here? Ive never used them but is this something good to own?
When im doing at home workouts I seem to like to work on my abs or my arms the most...but I will take any suggestions for some good items to own.
TRX because of it's versatility; you can hit an body part in a number of different ways AND take it anywhere (hang it up from a tree and workout outside).
Pull up bar b/c IMO pull ups and push ups are the two most basic/important upperbody exercises.
Superband(s) are my favorite resistance bands. You can wrap them around your shoulders to add resistance to push ups, hang them from a pull up bar to do assisted pull ups, do tricep pull downs, bicep curls, and they have a variety of uses in lunges, sprints shuffles and other movement/agility exercises.
Other fun toys I recommend are a jump rope, a foam roller, cones or a ladder (for agility training), a battle rope, kettle bells, a Swedish ball and/or bosu ball, a box or elevated platform to jump on and, of course, a good pair of running shoes.
