When it comes to working out at home, there are countless different resources you can use to ensure that you achieve optimal results. From dumbbells to treadmills (if you’ve got the money to spend), most equipment you can find at the gym can also be purchased for your home. However, here’s one piece of gym equipment that’ll cost you no more than $30, and is perfect for home workouts.

Resistance Bands

Not only are resistance bands super cheap, but they’re also incredibly space efficient. You can keep them in a drawer in your room and take them out when necessary. Even more convenient is the fact that they’re incredibly lightweight, so you can easily carry them around wherever you go (unlike dumbbells, for instance).

The kicker here is that resistance bands are also super effective. They essentially allow you to use your own weight as workout fodder. They do come in different weight formats, but your own weight will also play a big part in the tension that gets generated when using them.

The best part about resistance bands is that there are so many different ways you can use them. Fitness influencers are always posting new and interesting methods for how to best utilize these babies. But honestly, even just keeping things simple will get the job done.
