We have completed a complete list of bodyweight or calisthenic exercises you can perform with things you would find around your home. Also, here is your in home gym workout routine. In our workout routine we have added elastic exercises because elastics cost as little at $5-$15 online and can be a great way to add another demension to your home gym workouts.

Exercises: Bodyweight or Calisthenics Exercises, Elastic Exercises

2. $45 - In home gym - exercise bands

This is the next step up in the home gym which includes exercise bands. Exercise bands usually have handles which makes it very easy to complete a wide range of exercises. We have a complete list of exercise band exercises to complete. If you dont have an exercise ball you can do these on a chair.

3. $55 - Elastic bands and an exercise ball

Elastic Standing Row for your BackExercise balls are great for just about everything, you can do beginner fitness moves to advanced pikes or abdominal rollouts. Using the elastics as well as exercise bands will allow you to vary up your home workout routine while still keeping the cost down low. We prefer exercise bands to elastics but they also cost about $20-$30 more.

Exercises: Exercise Ball Exercises, Elastic Exercises

4. $100 - Exercise ball and exercise bands

Elastic Standing Row for your BackThis is a step up from the last one being that now you can get exercise bands which have handles and usually come with different clip on tension bands. Exercise bands usually come with a door attachment so you can exercise from the top down instead of always from your feet up. This will give you a wide range of exercises to try.

Exercises: Exercise Ball Exercises

Elastic Standing Row for your Back 5. $115 - Exercise ball and exercise bands and chin-up bar

The chin-up bar gives you the ability to do wide lat pull-ups, chin-ups and other more advanced back exercises that are harder to do without equipment. You will notice that most back bodyweight exercises require some sort of chin-up bar to perform them.

Exercises: Exercise Ball Exercises

This is what the chin-up bar looks like attached to the door frame:

6. $130 - TO bands and an exercise ball

TO bands are made for stronger people and have over 120 pounds of tension you can put for each exercise. This will allow you to get great workouts in and increase your weight, just like you would do at the gym. We suggest getting an exercise ball with this to completely vary your routine. We have included a bodylastics video to describe to you the effectiveness of those bands:

Order TO Bands: $100

7. Chinup Bar$160 - TO bands,
exercise ball and chin-up bar

With your high strength exercise bands and the chin-up bar, this combo can keep you busy and you probably wont need to go to a gym or get other equipment. This is the combination that we would recommend for most of our clients, readers and fans. Order TO Bands: $100

Dumbbells and Bench8. $650 Quick release dumbbells with an adjustable bench

Dumbbells allow you the freedom to do many exercises working your entire body. Quick release dumbbels are even better with taking up a fraction of the space like a rack uses. This is a great advanced home gym purchase. I would recommend anyone looking to workout at home to get this combination.

There is also the 'powerblock' which has received great reviews:

9. $1000-$2500 Universal and an elliptical

Universal MachineUniversal machines usually allow you to jump from one exercise to the next to complete a circuit training routine. You want to make sure you get one that has a cable attachment, hopefully a leg press and a good vertical press. Other nice to haves are lots of seperate plates. Some home gyms only allow one person to use the 'stack' while others have multiple stacks.

If you are looking into treadmills also check out elliptical machines as they provide just as good of a workout but don't have the impact on your knees. They also get your arms involved into the workout. Costs on these range substantially but if there was ever a time to say 'you get what you pay for' this is it.

10. $3500-$8000 The complete home gym

Universal MachineThis gym consists of everything needed to get a workout in like at the commercial variety. A universal, elliptical machine, exercise ball, mat, TO bands, quick release dumbbells with a bench and don't forget a workout log to keep up with your progress.
