Improve your home fitness routine with these 5 equipment must-haves that are less than $50 each.

With many parts of Australia now either in lockdown or under heavy restrictions, home workouts are returning in force.

If you don't want to spend a fortune to get your heart rate up though, there's plenty of affordable equipment out there if you know where to look.

We've tracked down the cheaper-than-average deals on everything from battle ropes to yoga mats below, so you can keep up the pace without blowing your budget.

Dumbbells are some of the easiest weights to incorporate into your home gym routine, but they can be quite costly. These Meteor anti-slip models from Amazon, on the other hand, start at just $14.95 a pair and include free delivery for those with an Amazon Prime membership.

Given that most retailers charge extra shipping fees for heavier packages, this is an offer worth taking advantage of.
