Bring an element of craftsmanship to your daily workout regimen with Do-It-Yourself fitness hacks. Looking good doesn’t need to cost you a toned arm and leg—especially when you can recycle, reuse and repurpose household items.
No-Leak Ice Pack: Frozen peas are so old school for your bumps, bruises and sore muscles. Create your own no-leak ice pack with a common household sponge, a Ziploc bag and some water. Soak the sponge in water, stick it in a secure bag, and place in the freezer.
Throwaway Arm Warmers: Those chilly mornings can warm up quickly. No need to buy expensive arm warmers when tube socks will do the trick. Take tube socks and cut 1-inch off the bottom, then cut a small hole for your thumb to keep them secure. These are great for cold race day mornings to keep you warm, and you won’t feel bad for tossing them.
