I feel like I’m always on the search for affordable, inventive weights. Here are some of my new favorite weight replacements that don’t cost a ton:
- Tennis Cans: Fill with sand and secure with lots of duct tape for a great weight.
- Water Containers: Leave them “as is” for a secure seal! I learned this after a slight mishap.
- Soup Cans: Raid that pantry, and look for the Family Sized ones to work it. If you need a bit of grip on a can, wear proper lifting gloves or simply add a few strips of duct tape to keep a good grip.
- Bags: Find another use for that ugly weekend duffle! I like to use one filled with laundry for squats, and it’s definitely an inexpensive option (and a reminder to do my laundry).
Do you have a homemade weight trick?
