   Invest your money in some home gym equipment that stays there
   Your MMA Home Gym is super convenient, affordable and easily accessible.
    Check out some of the best, affordable equipment that I have used over the years with great success.
      1. Pull up bar for getting that wide back and "V" shape to your body. Develop massive upper body strength with pull ups and chin ups. My pull up bar is the one on the left from "Rogue" its as solid as they come, attaches to studs and wont go anywhere. If you are beginning pull ups can be hard. Start with a flexed arm hang for as long as possible, gradually lower yourself to do 1/4 rep  pull ups. Then after doing those your strength will build , soon try going down to do 1/2 reps for several sets. Finally it may take a few weeks but progress is steady soon you will be able to lower yourself all the way down from the bar for a dead hang full rep, repeat as many as you can. Incorporate 1/4 and 1/2 reps for variety in the future. 
The Bread and Butter of my home gym is a solid pull up bar
for back, biceps, rear delts, forearms. 

2. Resistance Bands come in many varieties and strengths. Here is a link to a review I did for Stroops Son of the Beast Battle Ropes, top quality product that has lasted me for over 5 years, has up to 300 lbs of resistance, extreme versatility and portability to workout anywhere.
 I highly recommend the Stroops line of Slastix resistance bands they are the best on the market. Makes an excellent addition to any home gym set up. Made in the USA, high quality, Great for developing explosive strength and speed. Awesome for core strength in the battle rope mode which engages all 3 planes of movement for stronger punch in trunk rotations. These ropes are extremely versatile the amount of exercises you can do with just one set is mind boggling, you can get a FULL BODY workout at home , not to mention training with the Stroops Son of the Beast battle resistance bands is incredibly FUN!! Take them to a park or any outdoor area with a solid object (tree, park bench etc) and you are good to go.

3. Dip bar. Gotta have one of these for chest and tri's. I have used one of these fold up walkers for dips and they work just fine. I got mine for $10 at a second hand store. Still use it regularly. Low tech but does the job. If you cant do full rep dips start out with short 1/4 reps at a high volume. Gradually lower yourself and explode upwards fast. every couple of days try going a little lower with a 1/2 rep, go to failure, do as many sets as you can. Stay at this rep range for a week or so ... soon you will be able to go all the way down for a full rep sets. 

4. Punching Bag. The one I have is a water filled base by Century. Its been a staple in my home gym for over 20 years and still works great no problems! It's fantastic for punching and kicking drills, or even if you need to blow off some steam.
