Get A Dip Station or Use Elevated Objects

Resistance training makes your at-home cardio workouts much more effective. Use a weight that allows you to maintain proper form, but also challenges you on each exercise.

If you don’t have a dip station, try to find a suitable elevated object around your house. You can use a couch or bed frame to elevate yourself for some of these exercises.

For the Chest Flys, if you don’t have dumbbells, you can do push-ups. Of course, you will want to swing one arm further out at a time. This will help to mimic the dumbbell Chest Flys. The goal, here, is to work the outer areas of your biceps. If you can’t find anything, have Amazon ship a dip station to your door. It’s worth it!

  1. Good Workout. Tougher than it looks. I didn’t have an equalizer, so I just did dips between two desks at work.
