Home/Garage equipment suggestions

Looking for some suggestions to add to my garage setup.

Currently have the following equipment:

Jump Rope, Abmat, Rings, 35# KB, 3 in 1 Plyo box, 20# and 30# slam ball, adjustable DB set and agility dots(skill work)

Already on to add list: 53# KB, Parallettes

Aside from rack, bar, bumpers, and a rower, any suggestions for items, ideally relatively inexpensive?

Thanks!

Don't know how inexpensive we're talking, but my vote goes to a prowler or sled.

Re: Home/Garage equipment suggestions

There is a thread here for a DIY prowler that seems pretty worth while. Maybe a GHD?

Re: Home/Garage equipment suggestions

^^ agreed. A sandbag system is infinitely useful, and pretty fun. It can be a bit easier on the joints too, and fit nicely in with those "odd" shaped training philosophies. Also, a climbing rope? Great for your grip, fun, adds an element of danger since you're climbing 10+ feet... good times.

Re: Home/Garage equipment suggestions

A sandbag sounds like a good idea to me. Any suggestions for a sandbag?

There are a lot of DIY suggestions out there, but my experience has been that sandbags aren't expensive enough anymore to warrant trying to make your own. If you're even remotely rough on your homemade bag it's going to break sooner rather than later. Real sandbags are constructed very well for a specific purpose and you'll be happy with them. The handles that come with real sandbags also make them very versatile. You can get the filler bags if you want and that will make it easier to adjust weight, but you don't have to.

I've heard good things about Brute Force sandbags. My next equipment purchase is going to be one of their Strongman sandbags.

Re: Home/Garage equipment suggestions

My personal prefrence is sandbags without handles. It is great for the grip and is a much better stone alternative.

Re: Home/Garage equipment suggestions

Anybody use the Again Faster bag by chance? Narrowed down to AF or Rouge. Leaning towards AF due to cost.
