Your DIY gym – a sledgehammer that has been wrapped in a jumper

Trying to lose weight when money is tight may be difficult – especially if you cannot afford gym membership.

One of the cheapest pieces of home gym equipment you could try is a sledgehammer wrapped in a jumper 🙂

Introducing the shovelglove – from Wikipedia

Shovelgloving is a form of physical exercise based around use of a sledgehammer that has been wrapped in a sweater or otherwise padded. The shovelglove is used to perform shoveling, butter churning and wood chopping motions, amongst others. These natural movements are intended to be part of a functional training program.

The shovelglove has it’s own website, a set of exercises, testimonials and even an online shop where you can buy a sledgehammer.

Cheaper than a gym and more useful in the garden!
