MegaBar weight training

Pullup – MegaBar – Now here is a new item I tested recently. It's not even on the market yet, but I liked it so much that I am adding it to the list.  This is not just your standard door jamb pull-up bar, it is actually much more sturdy and doubles as an Olympic barbell (curl bar).  No kidding, it handles 200lbs easily if you can.  See Kickstarter links and videos.

 

Rubberbanditz gear

Rubber Bands and Other PT Accessories - Rubberbanditz.com – If you need help with pull-ups and don't have machines or weights, these rubber bands can actually help you with negative repetitions and assisted pull-ups.  But they can do so much more, like work the legs with squats and lunges, and work the chest and shoulders with pushups and chest presses.  These easy-to-use accessories to your PT workouts are even easier to pack and take in your travel bag for a great hotel room workout too. In fact, the site is loaded with programs, video exercise ideas, and tips on how to master the bands of fitness.

There are many great ideas on fitness programs, accessories, products, and events that may help you rekindle the spark if your workouts have gone stale.  Hang in there and make 2015 one of your healthiest ever.Stew Smith writes about fitness and acing physical fitness tests and is the founder of Heroes of Tomorrow Fitness – a FREE local and online fitness resource for people seeking military, law enforcement, and firefighting professions and testing tactical fitness gear and equipment.
