10 Things For Under $10

14 Jan

In my efforts to make a return to constant blogging, here is a quick little post on 10 things you can buy for under 10 bucks to help you at the gym.

Today I’ll hit you with the first 5, and expect five more tomorrow. 

1. Chalk

If you don’t use it, you don’t need it. If you don’t need it, you need to train harder. 




2. 24″ PVC Pipe

Head into any big hardware / home improvement store and pick this up for $5 and change. It will last forever, and help your body do the same. It’s never let me down, no need to spend 50 bucks on some fancy roller with bumps and divots and who knows what else. 



3. Lacrosse Ball

Another cheap little thing to help with your soft tissue work. As much as I love the PVC pipe, the ball helps you get to some more hard to reach places. A baseball, or any other hard ball should do. I prefer the lax ball because it’s grippy and doesn’t slide all over.



4. Creatine Monohydrate

Honestly the best supplement I can think of for the price. Also one of the only supplements I recommend to just about everyone.

Check this out for a deal under 10 bucks.



5. Training Journal

What gets measured, gets managed. Start writing down your numbers, and monitor your progress. Some of the most accomplished lifters I have met have numerous journals filled up. Other great lifters I have met don’t have any. It doesn’t hurt though, and if you aren’t the latter already I bet the journal and a commitment to focusing on progress will do you well.

    Head to a construction site and get the PVC pipe for a handshake lol. That’s what I did.
