POWERBLOCK Travel Bench (Silver) $133 Prime Shipped
I checked my purchase history, it's this one: Power Block Travel Bench (Silver) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000XEAUDK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_P.7PBbEJDEW43
So far it's worked fine for myself and the husband. Granted we're only lifting a hundred extra pounds max on top of our bodyweight, it's been pretty solid for a couple years.
I have dropped a blanket over it & used it as spare seating for guests, too.
I really prefer working out at home to working out in a gym. It's very relaxing to not worry about someone else needing the equipment, germs, music selection, or appearance judgement. Lets you focus on form and breathing.
I have one of these I was just about to list on facebook. Not sure if you wanted one with a rack but looking to sell this for $100.
The sit-stand desk I put together once I started WFH as I had one at my last job and it was nice not sitting all the time. I still sit more than I stand, but being able to switch it up means less back pain in the long term.
The exercise equipment kinda happened organically, and it's something I've had since before the pandemic and WFH. I used to have a full gym at my workplace but wanted something I could do at home if I couldn't make the gym and all I had at home was some cheap adjustable dumbbells I didn't really like. I was space constrained (whole house was 640 sq/ft). So I bought a this folding bench I could collapse and shove in the closet, and ditched my standard weights (except for one 5 lbs plate I use on a rope and handle pole for wrist rolls), and I bought the Powerblock Elites, mostly because I hated changing plates on adjustables and the quick change keeps me going into my sets quicker. I got the folding bike later because my wife wanted one and we were both lacking cardio stuff.
I spent most of my time when at the gym doing the big three lifts (deadlift, squat, bench press) and jogging on a treadmill, so I just accounted for the basic lifts, cardio, and convenience, don't need much else. After a while I found I just much preferred working out at home, being able to listen to music without headphones, talk with my wife between sets, etc. Now that I'm WFH I can also sometimes squeeze my workouts in throughout the workday.
It can take longer than with a bar and a rack since with dumbbells you have to do more isolation exercises (like doing lunges and goblet or bulgarian squats instead of back squats), but it's fine. You can do interesting variations with dumbbells, and I'm not some body builder, just a guy approaching his 40s trying to be fit and not turn into a blob. 😁
Now I'm in a bigger house and will probably consider getting a folding treadmill in the future, but I'm also living in the rurals now so running outside on dirt road and grass isn't murder on my knees. I'd also like to see if I can get my hands on a tractor tire to squat and flip, and a sledgehammer to go with it for tire work.
portable workout bench that's somewhat decent and folds to a manageable size.
For cardio, just go out for a decent jog or quick paced walk!
one decent pair of adjustable dumbbells that goes up to 52 pounds each. Not really all that heavy, but enough for a moderate workout daily and can still add up to an intense one if you incorporate calisthenics.
No excuse now! :p
Not broke anymore, I've been in good shape financially since... maybe early 2014, well over a year now. Still have some of the habits though.
I do everything at home. Back when I couldn't afford a gym membership and was weak and fat to start:
I just gathered all that stuff over time as needed.
When I stopped being so broke I bought a full length barbell, some 25 lbs plates, and a yoga mat to deadlift on. Also bought a collapsing weight bench (capacity approx. 550lbs) that fits in my closet when folded.
As for food... Well, I ate a lot of cheap stuff. Beans, lentils B-grade tough meats, liver, lots of eggs, bulk sausage, and grits. So, so much eggs and sausage and grits (don't care, I freaking love eggs). Got food at bulk dry goods stores and leaned heavily on cheap seasonings for variety.
I can't really do rice, bread, and so forth since I'm a T2 diabetic, but I did my best to keep it cheap. Meat was a luxury, but I did what I could. My wife helped a ton with that, she's an amazing cook. She made a lot of stews to stretch what meat we got at the time, and a good stew pot of beans, lentils, and some meat could last 4 or 5 days.
I sometimes use protein powder, but mostly try to get my protein in my diet. I take creatine now, it's cheap and effective. I also started eating these protein bars recently, they've got a pretty good macro profile for a small meal or snack.
So no major extremes, but even now that I've got the money, I still prefer working out at home. I get privacy, exercise in my boxers, and my wife gets to make comments about dat ass whenever I squat. :P
