A friend shared this link to a news article about women who climbed mountains wearing long skirts. It has some pretty cool pictures including this one:
I like the photo a lot, mostly because it reminds me that women were doing cool fitness things more than 100 years ago, and they did them with basic equipment.
It occurred to me that we invest a lot in equipment when perhaps we don’t need too. My favourite workaround to kettlebells is to fill empty detergent bottles with water. Later, when I get more ambitious, I can fill the bottles with sand to increase the weight. I have also recycled a broom handle to help me with certain back stretches.
What is your favourite workaround for home-based gym equipment? Let us know in the comments.
