Build Your Own Bodyweight Home Gym With Cheap PVC Pipe

If you’re not looking to dump $1000 on a home gym system, The Art of Manliness has a guide on how to build your own bodyweight gym at a fraction of the cost. All you need is some PVC pipes, rope and a little grit.

We’ve mentioned plenty of gymless workouts before, but if you’re looking to step up your game, this system adds lots of new exercise options. It’s a 24-step process, but since you’re just piecing together PVC, it’s simple enough that anyone can do it.

When the gym is complete, you have a powerful little system where you can do handstands, chin ups, dips and lots more. The PVC home gym isn’t pretty, but most exercise equipment isn’t anyway, and this DIY version saves you lots of money.

The Art of Manliness also highlights a full workout routine you can do on your new gym. The video above guides you through some of the various exercises.
