Are you getting sick of bodyweight training? We found some home workout equipment that’s still in stock, but we advise you to act fast…
When the gyms first closed their doors due to lockdown, online fitness retailers were bombarded with orders. Since then, many sites have struggled to replenish stock, as gyms have been closed and reopened and closed again. Unfortunately, that means that many have missed out on purchasing equipment as it flew off of the virtual shelves and, as a result, have been relying on bodyweight exercises for their home workouts.
That’s not necessarily a bad thing: there is a lot you can do without equipment. But given that we’re coming up to a year of on-off lockdowns, you might be getting your hands on some kit to really power up your strength gains.
