How To Make Your Own Weights

Instead of having to purchase expensive weight sets that are cumbersome to carry home from the store, you can learn how to make your own weights using items that are inexpensive or that are available around your own house.

Make Your Own Dumbbells

If you want to know how to make your dumbbells, you can start by recycling containers that come out of your own kitchen. For example, save your empty plastic milk jugs and make sure that you thoroughly clean them out along with allowing them to dry. Now, you can fill them with the substance of your choice to give them whatever amount weight you want. The most popular and easy to find materials to fill them with is either sand or water. The weight you want to lift depends on the level of filler that you add and you can increase this over time as you become stronger through exercise. You can also use empty juice containers, detergent bottles or any other plastic container that has a sturdy handle that is easy to grip.

Make Your Own Barbell

It is also simple to learn how to make your own weights using similar items that are easily found around your home. You can do many of the same exercises that you can do at the gym with these homemade barbells. You can use a wooden or metal pole that is sturdy enough to hold weights. Locate the middle of the bar and measure out the handy length from the center to the right and left and wrap electrical tape around it to create a grip. Then, you can make some weights using buckets. Fasten a sturdy bucket to each end of your bar. You can then put some rocks in the buckets to get them to specific weight that you want. Make sure you have equal weight on each side. As you get stronger add more rocks. By being able to make your own weights, barbells and dumbbells using common materials you can save money and at the same time still get a good workout.
