Home Gyms (18)

Home Gyms are a very convenient, compact, easy-to-use, and safe way of exercising with weights. Weight training is an extremely effective method of burning fat, toning muscles, building joint strength, and warding off osteoporosis. After the age of 30, bone and muscle mass start a natural decline. Home gyms allow you to lift specific amounts of weights by pulling or pushing on a bar or handle attached to a system of pulleys. Most home gyms offer the following stations: chest press, shoulder press, leg extension, lying or standing leg curl, triceps extension, triceps pushdown, arm curl, low rowing, lat pull down, pec deck fly, upright rowing, and heel raise. The only way to determine which one is right for you is to try several models out to make sure it is comfortable and works the muscle groups you want to work the most.
