Having a gym pass is often expensive. Adding to the problem is the travel to get to the gym. On days where motivation is lacking, this can be a large problem to surmount. Building homemade exercise equipment can remove the expense and obstacles to motivation that a proper gym may provide. Dipping bars are an easy place to start for the beginner builder. Use dipping bars to strengthen the biceps, triceps, shoulders and the chest muscles.
