Minimal Equipment Strength Training

Minimal Equipment Strength Training

Who knew that in the second half of 2020 exercise equipment would become the new toilet paper? With the world forced to change their workout routines, fitness equipment manufacturers can’t keep up with demand. There's now a shortage of dumbbells, kettlebells, and most other fitness equipment.

However, you can still get your strength training by filling up a backpack with items around your house. This is a great way to put those textbooks you kept from college to use.

Add more weight to your backpack with water bottles, snow tire chains, or even rocks.

Use our minimal equipment strength training routine listed below for inspiration and a starting point!

All movements are shown in the video above.


3 rounds
15 Alternating front plank reach
15 Alternating cossack squats

Strength & Balance

Every 90 seconds x 12 sets (18 minutes total - one move per 90 sec)
1st - Tall kneeling shoulder press 8-10 reps
2nd - Deadlift 8-10 reps
3rd - 20 seconds/side single-arm weighted plank (hold single weight)

Every 90 seconds you are only expected to complete one exercise ( both sides of the body). At the start of the clock, perform the 1st exercise listed. At the 1:30 mark, you begin the second. At 3:00 you begin the 3rd. At 4:30 you will restart the 1st and so forth until each is completed 4x each.
