DIY Home Gym – Cheap Flooring

Standard

If you are building a home gym and are going to be doing exercises like pushups, burpees where you are getting close to the floor or you are dropping weights, you will want to have some protection on the floor to help absorb some of the noise and protect the floor from weights being dropped on it.

Gym flooring can be expensive, as an alternative after reading about this on the web, I went to a Tractor Supply store and picked up a bunch of 4’x6′ agricultural mats, these are generally used in horse stables, but the are super sturdy 3/4″ thick and only run about $40 each, a bargain compared to other options.

DIY Home Gym – Crossfit plyometric boxes

Standard

The plain old box is a versatile tool in your home gym. You can use it for box jumps, but it can also be used for weighted step ups, reverse rows and a multitude of other movements. I initially looked on the Rogue Fitness website to buy two boxes, but at $125 a pop for a flat pack box which still require assembly (plus tax + shipping), this definitely seemed like something I could make myself at home to save a few dollars.
