One of the joys of Taiwan is working-out outside. We get 9 months of summer here. I will get hauled over the coals for saying that, but that's how I see it. I fill 5 liter bottles with water and stones for dumbells + do pushups outside. The best workout equipment I ever bought were 2x250TWD pushup handles. They just lie there saying: "Use me.".

noamchomsky wrote:forumosa fitness, do you know the chinese phrase for those adjustable dumbbells that you linked from ruten.com.tw before? the link is dead now and I was thinking about buying a set of those and an adjustable bench.

Also, do you have any idea where I can get those bands they use in Judo? They use it to emulate the pulling movement.



www.ironmaster.com They now have stock in Taiwan.
