It can be difficult to get into a workout regime. Sometimes it's the hardest step. D:
Whether you've forsaken exercising at the beginning of this year, dropped out during the middle, or just never started, now's the best time to plan your fitness goals with the new year rolling around.
Once you get sweaty and your oxytocin levels start to increase, it makes it all worth it.
To help motivate you before the new year, here's a list of affordable home workout equipment you can get online:
1. Dumbbells (5kg / 7.5kg) | RM79 – RM99
There are plenty of YouTube workouts you can do with a pair of dumbbells, or sometimes even just one.
If you're struggling, start with a lighter one and work your way up slowly to heavier weights.
2. Wood gymnastic rings | RM55
3. Iron gym pull up bar | RM23.90 – RM27.88
This multifunctional iron gym bar can be used for chin-ups, pull-ups, crunches, tricep dips, and more.
The best part is that you don't need to drill or screw it permanently to your door frame, as it uses levers to hold and can be removed easily if you want to do floor-based exercises.
4. Yoga / fitness mat | RM52.40 – RM97.80
5. Adjustable skipping rope | RM7.29 – RM15.90
A jump rope is one of the best forms of getting your heart pumping and your cardio for the day. There are plenty of different ones online.
These 9.8ft rope steel fitness jump ropes come with sponge cushion handles and are perfect for you to get a good sweat!
6. Elastic pull ropes | RM4.90 – RM15.20
7. Resistance bands | RM16.30 – RM17.12
Resistance bands can be a great way to take your squats, yoga, or pilates to the next level, and improve your core strength. There are latex and non-latex types, depending on what you prefer and they come in a variety of different colours.
