Rock Weights are a company that sells DIY concrete dumbbell and kettlebell molds. I came across this when I was in the market for iron dumbbells and thought it was a cool affordable option. Currently, you can only purchase a 40lb or 80lb dumbbell (gray or black) or a 40lb kettlebell. The company ships you the casing or mold and you fill it yourself by purchasing concrete from your local hardware store.
The BC T-Bell is a plate-loading training device (up to 400lbs) used for elevated exercises such as Romanian Deadlifts, Straddle Lifts, Squats and Bent Rows. All you need are standard Olympic plates.
Monkey Feet created by Animal House Fitness is a shoe attachment designed to hold dumbbells (think ankle weights but with dumbbells). If you are looking for a way to complete exercises such as the leg extension, leg curl and even donkey kicks and don’t have access to a machine, this is a cool option to have at home. It can even fit in your gym bag.
Do you only have dumbbells at home? Consider purchasing the HYPERBELL. This attachment has two versions: Kettle & Bar. You attach your dumbbell(s) and can get a versatile workout done at home with minimal equipment. The kettlebell attachment holds up to 100lbs and the barbell holds up to 200lbs (each side).
This option isn’t equipment but since pre-workouts are a popular supplement in the fitness industry, I thought it was worth including. They are usually a powder substance that you mix in your water bottle and drink prior to working out or training. They are known to give you a boost of energy which increases performance. I’m personally not a fan of them but for those of you who are, you might like this company that created pre-workout popsicles. Branded, “Pre Workout Pops”, a single pop contains 200mg of caffeine and 2000mg of Beta-alanine A variety pack of 12 will cost you $29.99 or you can try a sample pack for $10.
SnapClips are a spin on the traditional barbell clips that you use to secure your plates to each end of your barbell. Remember the nostalgic 90’s snap bracelet…that’s exactly how these work. Snap them on each end of your barbell and your plates are safely secure with no more hassle.
