There are many different types of effective home exercise equipment available, but it can be difficult to know which is best to develop certain areas of the body and certain aspects of of fitness. Therefore, I thought I would write up a little something that may help you with this…
What different types of effective home exercise equipment are there?
- Cross Trainers – Most cross trainers offer users a quality and efficient total body, low-impact workout. Unlike most cardio equipment, cross trainers target a variety of muscles around the body, such as your quads, calves, biceps, triceps, and even your core.
- Treadmills – Treadmills focus completely on the cardiovascular system and the lower part of the body. Whether you’re running, jogging, or just walking, it’ll raise the heart rate and provide a brilliant way of burning those excess calories, whilst also increasing cardiovascular endurance.
- Rowing Machines (or Rowers) – Like the cross trainer, rowing machines provide a workout that work a range of muscles around the body such as the legs, arms and even the core due to the rowing motion. Good for an all over body workout, losing calories and all round fat.
- Exercise Bikes (or Spin Bikes) – Get the legs pumping and the heart beating on an exercise bike. When working on an exercise bike, whether it be an upright bike, a recumbent bike, or a spin bike, you will work hamstrings, calves, hip flexors, and quadriceps, as well as significantly increasing stamina and muscular endurance.
