Before planning your home gym workout program it is important that you choose the right style of home gym. There are 2 general types: the Olympic Free Weight style home gym and the selectorized plate models. The Olympic style home gym is more geared towards power lifting and body building. The selectorized home gyms are geared for a more relaxed workout environment and include self spotting safety mechanisms that Olympic systems do not include. This article will cover the 8 basic exercises that should be included when you are working out on a selectorized home gym such as the Body Solid EXM1500S.
I too believed that you have to go to the Residential Gym Management, or at least have a home gym in your garage or basement to be able to get a proper workout. I was very skeptical at first – I thought that this kind of workout may be boring and not challenging enough.
Another toy? How about the jump rope? Manny Pacquiao uses that when he works out and definitely has competitions with his sons at home. So if a world class boxing champ can play with jump ropes, no excuses you can’t either.
Several weeks ago, I noticed a product called The Shake Weight at one of our local stores and asked her if she would be interested in trying it. It was $20. But, after purchasing it and giving it a try, I have to say it is one of the few pieces of exercise equipment I’ve seen that is worth the money.
But what could be the alternative. Time and cash are in short supply for quite a few of us. However it’s a known undeniable fact that exercise can lower stress levels. When the weather is decent, get outdoors. Take the youngsters for a bike ride or walk to the shops rather than using the car. You could possibly head over to the health club but if we are to set an example to the youngsters, we need to allow them see what we’re doing. Purchase some Personal training services, there are even treadmills suitable for kids, and making use of cardiovascular exercise equipment on a regular basis will ensure you are around for a good few years to see the youngsters grow up.
Spin Bike – A spin bike is an upright stationary bicycle. It will have one wheel, the front wheel, and sit on a stationary base. You can adjust the intensity of the workout by increasing the tension on the front wheel. Depending on the bike, you can increase the tension by pushing a few buttons or by turning a knob.
Before starting a home fitness routine, it’s a good idea to get your physician’s green light. Having your doctor check your health conditions will help you identify the types of exercises that will be helpful for you. This will then guide you on which equipment to buy for your home gym. Furthermore, your doctor will help rule out any health conditions you may have that may hamper your performance.
