So now you have all these milk jugs around. So what do you do with them? You
can recycle them of course. But it wouldn't hurt to leave a couple around.
In this article, I'll tell you why.
Most people workout at a gym. Sometimes, it might not be possible to get to
the gym. For example, say there is a severe snow storm and the gym is
closed. What do you do? If you have equipment at home, you can use that. If
you don't, you can use my workout:
The Milk Jug Workout
This workout can be done with milk jugs, preferably gallon jugs. The jugs
can be filled up with water or sand.
You can do dips using chairs and push ups for your chest.
If you have any type of bench (ex: wooden)
Flat Flies X 12-15
Flat Jug Press X 12-15
Preform Four super-sets, alternating starting exercise

Elevated Push Up:
body straight, lower your body by bending your elbows. Go down until your
chest almost touches the ground. Return to starting position.
Wide Push Ups:
Diamond Push Up:
Same as standard, except hands are positioned under the middle of your
Basketball Push Ups:
Put your hands together so there looks like there is a diamond in
between them (Index fingers touch each other and thumbs touch each other).
This helps develop your inner pecs.
Three-Point Push Up:
Same as standard, except you put one foot on top of the other.
Deep Push Ups:
Try adding a couple of these between the sets of your chest workout.
