Re: No Money...No Gym...WODs?


If you have a garage, it will be a lot easier as you might not have room in your bedroom or living room or be allowed to. A patio/backyard help but it depends. The closer things are, the more convenient and more likely you'll use them but sometimes when they are at home, we put them off since they are so easy to access and we are using our home for other modalties (relax, cook, play, work, etc)

Get a door pullup bar. You can do pullups and leg lifts on them, skin the cats, levers and use them as an anchor for situps and floor glute ham. Hopefully you have chairs or barstools or use the corner of a kitchen counter for dipping.

Get an ab-wheel/roller or make one.

Get a piece of rope or a stick as a stretching device. Cheap SMR roller is a piece of 3" PVC and a baseball for finer work. That's about maybe 5 bucks there together.

Make a set of rings.

Get a basic barbell set from the sports store (100lbs for 100 bucks) or preferably a CL special. Make a set of squat stands.

Make one of those basketball medballs if you care.

Get a big enough KB or DB that it will last you. I'm not too fond of the idea of swinging around one that is adjustable.

Stopwatch. My ipod has one as do most cellphones or use a program on a computer.

It's a little pricey, but you may want to invest in Zach Even-esh's Bodyweight University DVDs.

Re: No Money...No Gym...WODs?

I'm in the exact same place your in except I'm going back into school...long story there but I'm broke.
I made parallettes from the CF Journal (so simple)
When this summer class is over, this week, I'm going to make a few different weight sandbags to put into a duffle and backpack for different things and some rings
Jump ropes are cheap and great
I use the playground and local HS track/bleachers

I reference that link with all the BW metcons often, but doesn't do much for programming or substituting the whole mainsite WOD
