PWR at Home uses some key pieces of equipment to help you increase your strength, including:
- Ankle Weights
- Bench (Week 5 onwards)
- Long Resistance Band
- Medicine Ball
- Recovery Band
- Resistance Band
- Resistance Tube
- Skipping Rope
- Weight Plate
- Wooden Dowel
- Yoga Mat
Many pieces on this list you may already have at home, or from previous Sweat programs. Kelsey has tried to utilise equipment that most home gym set-ups will already have available, but if these items are unavailable to you, we suggest using substitute equipment.
If I don't have access to the equipment, what can I use instead?
Some pieces of equipment do not have an exact equivalent, but we do have some suggestions of suitable substitutes you could incorporate into your workout:
- Resistance Tube - You can omit the resistance tube altogether if you have a recovery tube as these two items are interchangeable.
- Bench - Any flat, stable surface will be suitable.
- Kettlebell - One large dumbbell (8-15kg) can be used instead.
The equipment required for the PWR at Home workouts will be used repeatedly throughout the program. Try to think of them as investment pieces — for your program and your health!
How do I choose a weight that's right for me?
When it comes to selecting a weight for equipment, Kelsey always recommend to start small and increase in increments as your strength and confidence improves.
Select a weight that is a 7/10 difficulty (1 = very easy and 10 = maximum effort).
