Best Home Workout Equipment From Amazon

With gyms currently closed, what better time to invest in some home workout equipment?  The good news is this investment will still be helpful in the future to encourage your workouts at home on days you are too busy to get to the gym. 

I have put together a few home workouts for my personal training clients to do while we cannot meet for sessions at the gym. The following are some equipment recommendations to support those workouts along with a few exercises that I have included in their programs.

First, I always recommend warming up with a foam roller.  In fact I wrote a whole blog post about it here.  I suggest getting a 36 inch long, high density roller like the Amazon Basics High Density Foam Roller

Adding weighted resistance training to your home workouts will help you increase your muscle strength and size. Dumbbells are a great way to do resistance work at home with out taking up as much space as other strength equipment.  I suggesting investing in one or two pairs of dumbbell weights somewhere between 8-30lbs, depending on your strength goals and current fitness level. These CAP Barbell Sets of 2 have many different weight options available.

For adding a challenge to some core work I like to include a 8-12lb kettle bell.  I like a vinyl coated one like the Amazon Basics Kettle Bell.

To add some resistance to glute and shoulder work I included exercises with loop bands in my clients’ workouts. This 6-pack of Vive Loop Bands includes resistance levels from light to extra-heavy.

Here is a sample workout I created that uses these pieces of equipment.
Keep in mind this is a sample workout for healthy individuals with no medical conditions. As with any workout program if you have any concerns, consult your physician before trying any of these exercise.
