Homemade TRX

I’m not sure if you are aware, but there is a new trend going around of suspension training.  Tons of people are getting into it….but here’s the thing, to buy the TRX suspension training bands, you’re going to spend $150, $200!  I don’t know about you, but that’s a little out of my price range.  Now don’t get me wrong, there are TONS of exercises you can do with these but is it really worth that much money?  Not when you can make your own.  Here’s what I did.  I had an old bench style swing set that I removed the swing from so it is just four legs and the bar going across (which I use as a pullup bar as well!).  Then I wen’t to a local pet store and checked out the clearance dog leashes.  Luckily for me, I found two identical leashes that both had padded handles (I highly suggest this!).  Just wrap the leashes around the crossbar of the swing set and let the handles swing down.  Here’s an example of what mine looks like:
