No Free Weights, No Problem

March 03, 2014 2 min read 1 Comment

My perspective on working out is that I've never really wanted to do it in the past. Most of my teens and in through half of college I pretty much preferred to sit around on my ass and eat what ever the hell I want. I realized I couldn't keep up the lifestyle if I was just being a potato all day. So I forced myself to get to the gym and work off the pounds I've gained. Reach a kind of equilibrium if you will of free eating that's earned through hard work. There was still the problem of getting down to the gym. Sometimes it was laziness holding me back, other days I was just too busy. I decided I didn't need to necessarily be at a gym to get some workouts done. I set myself a minimum requirement of 60 pushups a day, broken up into 3 sets of 20. Looking around my apartment I started to get ideas about new ways I could used furniture to help with my regime, like tricep dips. I still missed what I got from using free weights. Unfortunately I don't own any free weights, so I decided to get a little creative. Cast Iron Pans castironskillet Though kind of awkward to handle, these have a nice weight worked great for military presses. I grab the top of the handle, that connects to the pan, and grip the rest of it firmly. Cans of Food dr pepper beans ingredients Great for light free weights. Choose a can size that works best for the size of your hand. Old Juice/Milk Containers Header_applejuice This is great, because I hate taking out the recycling. Take an old 2 L jug of juice, clean it out, and fill with water. Now you got yourself a makeshift kettlebell. Paint Cans PaintCanWithHandleSilverMed_x Pretty self explanatory. They have good weight and come with handles! What more do you need. Amps and Equipment (for any musicians out there) Epiphone_professional_1963_top_am-_detail_1 I realize this is for a smaller demographic, but I've been a musician for years, and have used that as my excuse for not working out. "Oh I can't work out now, I'm gonna work on a song instead! That's a version of productive!" Well its not a good enough excuse. Guitarists, lift your amps, Drummers, your kick drum, and everyone else just get creative with your instrument. Flute players you might have a bit problem finding a way to utilize yours for fitness. Basically what I'm getting at is, if you are unmotivated, or don't have a lot of time to get your arse down to the gym, think outside the box. Size up your room or you office, and when you have some downtime see what you can use to give yourself a little workout.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
