3 Reasons Why YOU should Workout with Odd Objects

Whether it be sandbags, kettlebells, kegs, tires, rocks or a bag of potatoes

Odd objects are all around us and you can use them as workout equipment

Most of the times these odd objects are free or very low cost to make (compared to buying barbells and dumbbells)

But before I go onto describe some of these things that you can use as workout equipment let me give you 3 good reasons to train with objects:

Elliott Hulse Sandbag Loading#1 – They don’t have an even load so they force you to workout extra had, using more stabilizing muscles & activating more muscle fibers

These object don’t have to always be just heavier in order to increase their difficulty…you can just use a bigger, thinner or different material item

For example fatter sandbag (a lot harder on the grip), thicker bars (you can even use trees), or using towels & ropes

#2 – Odd objects are everywhere & will make you open your mind to working out anywhere and with anything

Working out at a gym is not always a necessity if you know how to use the tools in your environment to your advantage:

Use chairs as dip stations, walls to do pull ups, push cars for conditioning, etc

Doing this will also save you a lot of money on workout equipment…for example you can make a 100 pound sandbag for less than $20! (compare that to 100 pound dumbbell that might cost $70+ just for one DB)

Pro Tip: Buy used workout equipment on Craigslist & garage sales to save a lot of pennies

#3 – They are Fun & will make you Free

Free from always following rules & doing things like everyone else

When you use odd objects not only will you get stronger but will also be captivated by the challenge of using something uncommon to workout brings

  • You will walk out onto the world & see fences everywhere where you can do dips & pull ups at
  • You will see stop signs and try to do flag poles on them
  • You will see a heavy rock & wonder how much it weights, but curiosity & wonder won’t be enough so you will approach it, pick it up & start doing squats, lunges & overhead presses with it
  • You will pick up heavy things when you go shopping just, like front carrying a car battery all around Walmart just so you can get a massive biceps pump while everyone else doesn’t!

And perhaps all of those were personal examples, but either way your mind will be open to seeing everything as an opportunity to workout once you regularly use odd objects in your training

If you try working out with a rock for example you will feel your grip having to work extra hard – the uneven rock will force you to stabilize your whole body & you will unconsciously be freeing your mind form always having order and rules to workout

When you know you can use anything in your environment to workout you become free to explore the world & get stronger anywhere and with anything…

Life becomes your 24/7 Strength Playground!

My good friend Elliott Hulse was one of the first persons to ever introduce me to odd object training & ever since I haven’t looked back

I remember the first time I purposely pushed my car to workout, it was tough but fun

It was a different kind of energy & it made me realize that everyday things can be weapons for strength building – You just gotta be open minded & let go of always doing things “the right way”

Today Elliott’s program Lean Hybrid Muscle is on discount, but only for 8 more hours as of writing this

I’ve learned a lot from this program and this method of training is one that I personally use & will continue to use because it works
