The motivation to keep up with your weekly or daily workouts sometimes becomes hard with limited financial resources, depending on where you are with your fitness journey. A long day at the office may have you feeling like just slacking off and staying a little longer in bed and this causes a disruption in the constant dedication that is needed to achieve that ripped body. Getting back the motivation to constantly work out and get back in form after a mental plateau is not an easy thing to do. There are some solutions that can remedy both the mental and financial plateau.
Establishing a home gym is one of the best options available to you when you are on a mental plateau or a financial plateau. A home gym is better for you on the hygiene view.

You can still work out and get that ripped body without a home gym or going to the local gym. Use whatever item is available to you just like people did hundreds years ago when there were not gym machines. You can use a bag filled with books and other heavy items as an effective weight to do squats when do not have barbells. You can also do pull ups from the branches of trees or do inverted push-ups on a staircase to increase the angle. A good workout is about the basics of using your bodyweight and carrying heavy items like backpacks just like they do in army training. That’s one way of keeping fit on budget and keeping your motivation high.
