A great workout should not be limited by financial constraints, but on occasion, they get on the way. With limited financial resources, depending on the level that you are on with your fitness journey, the motivation to keep up with your daily or weekly workout plans may go down. Getting that ripped body also requires constant dedication, which can be broken when you are faced with a long day at the office and all you want to do is lie on the bed and rest. After hitting this mental plateau, getting back your motivation to workout becomes hard. So what the solutions available for when you are on your financial plateau or mental plateau?
When your finances are limited or you are on a mental plateau, setting up a home gym is the best solution. From a perspective of hygiene, a home gym is better for you. After use, most of gym owners will in most cases leave the machines and equipment not cleaned up. You are forced to clean up the machines yourself before you start your session or you would have to work out with dirty machines. This does not only waste your time but also exposes you to health hazards. Not having to get into your car to head to the gym saves you a significant amount of time every week. Buying the first batch of equipment is not cheap in the beginning but in the long-run it proves to be a much cheaper option. What’s more, you can keep on adding barbells, treadmills and pull-up bars to your home gym. the motivation to workout will always be there when you have a free gym at home.
Another great solution to working out when you are on a financial plateau or do not have space to set up a gym at home is a makeshift workout. You can still work out and get that ripped body without a home gym or going to the local gym. Work out using any item available to you just like people did long ago when there were not gym machines available. You can use a bag filled with books and other heavy items as an effective weight to do squats when do not have barbells. Use tree branches to do pull ups or do inverted push-ups on the staircase to increase the angle. Effective workout does not require you to spend endless hours in the gym but learning the basics of using your body weight and items to exercise like in the army training. This tips will help you stay motivated and also keep you fit without spending much.
