I was proactive, got a set of Bowflex adjustable dumbells and a bench.  Even got Best Buy to price match a cheaper site, a week later they were all gone.

 

But yeah, a cheaper solution would be a pull-up bar, resistance bands, a kettlebell, an ab roller and skipping rope. That should cover most of your needs on the cheap.

I want those bowflex dumbbells man! I didn't get ahead of timing on those. I did for ammo luckily. Just made an offer on them on offerup, thanks for that idea Dajush.

lol. Bowflex still being a thing is funny to me. I guess, whatever. I don't want those ridiculous complex dumbells.

This why every man should at least have a power tower, some dumbells and a stationary bike/airdyne.

I've made some of this stuff. The medicine ball (I used a basketball filled with sand and a bike tire patch)

I also made the kettle bell using a heated PVC pipe for a handle filled with sand, a basketball filled with cement, fishing sinkers, misc nuts, bolts etc for added weight. Those have both turned out great and lasted me a long time. I use them along with my other equip right now for home workouts since I can't go to the gym.

I also made a grappling dummy. That was damn near worthless, although fun to make. You can't really do anything useful without a live partner grappling. Good luck. If nothing else, your best bet it to work on calisthenics and shadow boxing.

There's a bunch of stuff on Craigslist and OfferUp where I am. It's all ridiculously overpriced of course.

Have you clicked on any of the listings?  All out of stock besides the full machines.

I tried to do this with a heavy chain once. Split my head open and had 14 stitches. I guess the foam padding makes a difference but I'm too XTREME for that.

I've waited a few days or more on delivery with Amazon before, I figured it was standard. Wasn't trying to argue.

Sorry, should have more clear. I meant April 1st, not May 1st. 

 

Edit: yeah I'm seeing more mid April to May deliveries.
