A Sturdy Chair or Platform (or Plyo Boxes)
If you don’t feel like splurging on plyometric boxes, any sturdy* platform will do. Box jumps are an incredibly effective (and draining) leg workout. Chairs are perfect for tricep dips because they offer full range of motion.
*Be aware of the limitations of your improvised equipment.
This little-known trick might be the best kept secret in the world of fitness. Yeah, we know you already use a towel to wipe your sweat, but this cheap and compact piece of equipment does more than that. A towel on a wood or tile floor will slide; use it under your hands or feet to get a killer ab workout. If you happen to own a cable trainer, switch out the grip for a towel to work at a different angle that will challenge different muscles. Your tricep pull down will never be the same.
Most people know a foam roller is a great way to follow up your workout, but this tool serves dual purpose in your limited gym space. Foam rollers can assist in your workout as well. Doing push-ups with your hands on the foam roller will help those with injured or inflexible wrists and there are dozens of ways a foam roller can work your abs.
