Home Gyms are a great solution to at home fitness. They provide a variety of strength training exercises all in one machine, eliminating the need for multiple pieces of equipment. Boston home gyms are ideal for those who enjoy staying in shape and using strength training exercises, but don’t always have time to get to the gym. This all-in-one machine allows you to get a full body workout without the hassle of purchasing a variety of weights, bands, or other equipment.
When choosing a Boston home gym from the professionals here at Fitness Equipment Northeast, it’s important to know what you’re looking to get out of your workout. Although all machines offer basic strength training exercises, some are more specific and can offer exercises just for sports performance or rehabilitation.
Like we said, these machines are ideal for whole body workouts. Your main arm muscles are your biceps – located on the front of your upper arm, and your triceps, which are the ones in the back. Working the biceps involves pulling weight towards you, like performing bicep curls. To work your tricep muscles, you must push weight away from you. Home gyms typically come equipped with a cable-pulley system that’s ideal for these exercises.
Also utilizing your home gym cable or tension rod system are chest exercises. Chest presses work both the chest and triceps, and can be performed either horizontally (if your machine has a bench), or standing or seated.
Back exercises typically involve pulling weight towards you. These are best performed using handles or a bar attached to a cable. Pull ups, which utilize your body weight, can be performed on a home gym system. Other back exercises include lat pulldowns and rows.
Sometimes they don’t get the recognition they deserve, but your legs have some of the biggest muscles in your body! Make sure you include them in your full body workouts. You can perform leg or hamstring curls, leg presses, and squats on a home gym system.
You can do some of these exercises using body weight. But Boston home gyms can add the resistance necessary to make your workout more efficient. Give us a call at 978-854-5393 to learn more about which system is right for you.
