What’s the best home gym equipment when you’re on a budget?

I’ve got a gym membership, but truth be told, there are days when I don’t have the time to go to the gym. So I’ve been wanting to have some basic equipment at home to do something for those times when I don’t just want to do a bodyweight workout.

In this video, Jeff Cavaliere from Athlean X shares his recommendations for building a home gym:

Here’s the summary:

A utility benchDoorway Pull-Up Bar

He says the cost anywhere between $10-$30.

Resistance Band / Tubing

He recommends getting something that you can step on with both feed and then pull it up all the way above your heads with a good amount of resistance. Get with handles if you find it easier to grab, but even without is fine (which is what I have, since that takes up almost zero space when I travel).

(Adjustable) Dumbbells

If your budget allows for that, get adjustable dumbbells so you can do your progressive overload. If not, just get whatever level you’re currently at.
