My wife and I decided to save time and money by working out at home. In the mornings, we do WODs consisting mostly of sets and Tabatas of body weight reps (pushup, pullups, situps, burpees, etc.).
With our $$ savings vs gym membership, we've purchased some equipment like: Kettlebells, a Power Tower (for pullups, knee-ups and dips), and a Roman Chair for doing back raises. I thought these items were a great value (Power Tower: $109, Roman Chair: $79, Kettlebells: 75¢ / lb) -- considering how many exercises can be done with them.
But, other items like Plyo boxes and good quality medicine balls seem way over-priced. I went ahead and made my own Plyo boxes. And, I'd like to make other items as well.
Before I start hitting Amazon and Craigslist for more stuff (need some heavy stuff to move around)...
Anyone have any luck building their own equipment? How'd you do it? Also, what are your favorite at-home exercises / WODs?
