Working from home was kinda cool in March when we created our home offices, got to sleep in, and wore sweatpants every day. But it’s June and working from home is getting a bit old, to say the least. Your dad has spent a lifetime sitting for work. If his posture slumps, an exercise ball can help. It’s something he can use in his home office or in his makeshift home gym.

If you’re really into the idea of an exercise ball as a way to clean up your posture but you don’t like the idea of it rolling around your living room, you could swap out your office chair for an exercise ball chair. It’s a little more sturdy than the just exercise ball alone and could offer dad some more back support. The exercise ball chair is also a great for physical therapy.

A normal ping pong table will cost you at least $400. If you don’t have a ping pong table now, you probably were never going to get a real one. BUT you can DIY a ping pong table for under $30 bucks. Turn your kitchen table, coffee table, whatever table you have really, into a ping pong table. The ping pong noises will probably annoy the hell out of your significant other, but they could let it slide on Father’s Day at least.

There are a ton of pull-up bars to choose from, but FEIERDUN’s is a best seller on amazon and gets rave reviews. If you want to spend hundreds of dollars on another piece of metal between a door go for it, but it’s not necessary.
