Any advice is welcome, to include diet changes, exercises and/or supplements(though more cost is a factor).
You’re willing to buy supplements, but not a gym membership or some basic home equipment? There’s something wrong with that.
Where do you live? You can find a 300-pound barbell set for $150-$200 in most of the U.S. Look on Ebay or Craigslist to sometimes find cheaper used stuff. Also check out the “Poor Man’s Equipment Thread” for some ideas.
But if you still want to train on the cheap, no worries. Grab a backpack or duffel bag, there’s got to be one laying around your house somewhere. Now stuff it with everything that’ll fit. Not sweaters and t-shirts, but heavier things like textbooks, phonebooks, boots, whatever can fit.
Congrats, you just built a weight. Search the web for info on sandbag lifting, and you should be able to do most of the exercises with your bag. Some of the easiest ones: Bearhug it and walk. Bearhug it and squat. Press it overhead with one arm. Press it overhead and squat. 1-arm row. Swing it to different heights (chest level, eye-level). Snatch it overhead. Basically, take the weight, pick it up somehow or move it somewhere, repeat.
Sorry if I confused you, I live in Korea and most apartments(like mine) are quite small. I can’t afford, or have the room, for any large equipment(barbell set wouldn’t even fit).
Things like dumbells and other smaller items are not a problem. The closest gym would take me at least an hour(if the traffic is nice, which in Seoul it normally isn’t) to get there, and then another to get back. Hence currently from home is the only option.
Thanks for the replies so far.
