If you’re looking for the ultimate upper body workout that keeps you (mostly) off the floor, the Iron Gym Total Upper Body Workout Bar is it. The bar hooks over a door jamb. It comes with a clip that holds it in place.
The bar is designed to allow you to do pull ups placing your hands in a number of positions: narrow and wide grip, the classic chin up, and the classic pull up. You can also do a hammer grip by grabbing the forward-facing handles.
By removing it from the door jamb, you can use it for dips and crunches. You’re also able to narrow grip push-ups with it too.
It uses simple leverage on the door jamb to support your weight. There are no screws, nails, or damage to the doorway.

Rather than needing to use the hotel gym which gets cleaned whenever someone gets to it, you can work out in your room with a system that works incredibly well.
It comes with a training app that will guide you to the best workout you can get. Not only will the app show you positions to use, but it helps track your workout so you can be sure to get the most out of the TRX over time.
One of the TRX Suspension Training systems most powerful attributes is that it works your core the entire time. Every exercise involves your core. That’s what puts this on the list of the best home gym equipment for 2020.

The OYO system uses resistance to train the body. There are handgrips attached to nylon-coated stainless-steel cables. With FlexPacks that restrict the cables at 5- and 10-pound intervals, each cable can provide up to 25 pounds of resistance.
This is one of those amazing technologies that arose out of the needs of NASA. For over a decade, this technology has been used by astronauts in orbit to keep their bodies strong. Dr. Leroy Chiao, who spent 6 months on the International Space Station, said that he came back stronger because of the OYO Gym technology.
For anyone looking for a space age way to get stronger, leaner, and fitter, the OYO Personal Gym is the right answer.

The bow – as in bows and arrows – has been around for thousands of years. Today, Gorilla Bow has put that iconic shape to a new use: fitness.
The idea is so simple it’s amazing: put resistance bands on a bow and get a total body workout.
Weighing only 3 pounds and only 48 inches long, you can work your entire body with a bow. For example, by laying down and pushing against the bands you can work your legs. Stand on the bands for a simulated dead lift. Pull up a little further and you have a vertical row. This is a genius idea that will make working out a lot easier.
The bow is made from aircraft aluminum to make it incredibly strong and light. The bands offer variable resistance. You’re able to add multiple bands to increase resistance.
The Gorilla Bow’s unique design and quality construction make it an ideal addition to the Best Home Gym Equipment 2020 list.
Attention all soccer players: increase your leg strength the simple way with ankle weights. Baseball players use these weights on their wrists to increase their arm strength by gently swinging their arms.
The Da Vinci Adjustable Weights use Velcro straps, so they stay on your wrists and ankles securely. They’re also available in various weights, from 1 to 5 pounds, so you can gradually increase your strength and not risk injury.
Using weights on your ankles, especially for athletes whose sports require a lot of running like soccer, rugby, and ultimate disc, will help the legs grow stronger, particularly the smaller muscles that control forward and backward movement. If you’re looking to up your game in a sport with a lot of running and quick changes in direction, wearing ankle weights will strengthen your knees and hips, elbows and shoulders.
Sometimes the simplest exercises can have the greatest impact. The New Hand Grips are available in strengths from 100 to 350 pounds. Having a powerful hand grip is vital to almost every sport and even for your overall health.
Grip strength affects your ability to lift weights, for example. A stronger grip will help you increase in weight on your bicep curl and do more pull-ups, especially weighted pull-ups. A dead lift without hand strength is just standing up. At these strengths, these are for more advanced users.
Football, baseball, and tennis are all sports that require powerful hands to be successful.
There’s also medical evidence that hand grip exercises can lower your blood pressure, naturally. If you’ve been told your blood pressure is a bit high, consider getting a set of these hands grips and see if you can take it down a few points. (Here is a link to an article on the subject.)
New Hand Grips are the easiest way to improve at many sports and be healthier. Grab a pair and see what this simple exercise can do for your life.
If you’re not ready to try to squeeze 100 pounds, grab the FitBeast Hand Grip Strengthener Workout Kit to get started adding strength in your hands, wrists, and forearms.
More than just grip strengthening, there’s also a finger strengthener that will help you strengthen the muscles that open your fingers. This can be a great place to start for rock climbers, baseball pitchers, and quarterbacks. It’s also a great way to overcome arthritis by working the muscles in your hands every day. Be sure to talk to your physician before starting this or any other exercise regimen.
The FitBeast Hand Grip Strengthener Workout Kit comes with an adjustable hand gripper, finger exerciser, finger stretcher, grip ring, and stress relief ball. This is a complete set of hand exercises for everyone from athlete to couch potato.
Bonus: The whole thing can be had for less than a single dinner and a beer at a restaurant.
