    My top three gym items I couldn't live without are the barbell (squats, DL and bench..what more could a girl need), the cable machine (because of it's versatility) and the stair master (because I haven't seemed to find a better cardio machine that gets me to sweat quite like that one..even spin class)

    Barbells (plus plates), dumbbells and resistance bands. A close fourth would be cable machine.

    Barbells, dumbbells, cable machine/hammer strength machines. (So basically most of the gym? loool)


    For cardio this summer I have been biking outside several days a week which has been a fun change.

    1) Weights (Combo of machines, free weights and kettlebells)
    2) Elliptical
    3) Treadmill

    I am running on the treadmill right now as it is so hot in Florida during the summer. Once the weather gets cooler I will start running outside again. Spent some time on a stair mill for the first time the other day and it kicked my butt big time so I suppose I should spend more time on that machine.

    - heavy boxing bag
    - tractor tire to flip and smash with a sledgehammer
    - battling rope tied to a sled

    At my gym, it's a lot warmer on the stepmill, because you're higher up and the hot air rises there. That's why i don't use sweat as a metric for workouts. Try comparing heart rate with your spin class. :+1:
