You don't have to use a lot of different equipment to see results. Use household items for strength training, like cans of soup or water bottles filled with sand. Research calisthenics and yoga exercises you can do on your own to increase flexibility and range of motion. Get creative. Remember that exercises like sit-ups, push-ups and pull-ups are also components of strength training. If you want traditional weights, invest in a basic set of dumbbells or weights with easy-to-use bars.
