    loss of income= loss of gym membership


    So besides the basics of push ups pull ups and sit ups I have a bar in my garage so I also do hanging sit ups as well as different variations of pull ups. Anyone has any other suggestions?
    I also am in construction so I use material to workout too lol like putting 2 buckets of mud on a price of 2" conduit and can do squats with it... I'm creative

    So, if you can do squats with that set up, I would think you could then do deads, standing on a few concrete blocks that were laying around!? Take some weight out of the bucket and do a few sets of bent rows, take a bit more out and overhead press, take some more out and do a few curls. One arm bucket work could be like kettle bells too for single limb work.
    Get to it dude ;-)

    I would look at the loss of your gym membership as a positive. Now u can try out some different training modalities that u were probably ignoring while training at a gym. U should check out Ross Enamait's website (I can't post a link but it's his name with no space between first and last.com). Follow Enamait's training routines & u will be in the best shape of your life - guaranteed. His book, Never Gymless, which u can download for $12, is a classic. The guy know his sh1t. If u can afford it, u should get it. U won't be sorry. It's worth a lot more than any gym membership. Also, if u search You Tube there are literally hundreds of bodyweight and no equipment routines freely available.

    If you're thinking of going the home video workout route, I'd recommend GSP's Rushfit. It's about 1/2 the price of either P90X or Insanity & it's better IMO. However, if u have some discipline, which admittedly a lot of people don't have, u don't really need these videos.

    Use the back of two chairs to do dips. Maybe sit something heavy on them so they do not tip over. Go on youtube and do a search for home gym. There is many videos of how people created different equipment using parts purchased at Home Depot/Ace/Lowes.

    Thickness looks to be 1/4''. 10k is a 10,000 pressure washer. Like the one at the car wash but it can take of fingers, toes, paint. Lol etc. Also have a 40k that will put holes in cement.

    Lol your more man than I am, no way I would be trying to flip that steel closest thing I'd get to that is flipping a price of core board(1 inch by 2 feet at 12 feet long). Also damn that's a nice pressure washer, I got a puny 5000 psi one I use to get my driveway pretty
