Forms of Strength Training Available: 2. Home Gym or Health Club Strength Training Exercises


When you get to the point where body weight exercises become boring and no longer elicit results, the next logical step would be to purchase home gym equipment or join a health club. Both options provide a variety of exercises where you have the option to add weight to the exercise. Strength training exercises provided by a home gym or health club can take you to the next level in your strength training workout.

Our bodies are remarkable in their ability to adapt to the stimuli we place upon them. That is why it's important to make changes to your exercise program on a frequent basis. By utilizing more advanced equipment, the type you find in a home gym or health club, you can shock your body into changing for the better.

I've worked with a number of people over the years who spent most of their workout doing only cardiovascular exercise along with a few body weight strength training exercises. These people will often ask me why they haven't seen much progress despite consistently working out. I'll tell them they need to add a new element to their program, that element being strength training exercises using added weight. It usually doesn't take long and they come back to me saying that they are back to seeing results.

As a personal trainer, I like to change my client's programs every six to eight weeks. My clients enjoy exercise more because of the variety in the exercises. The variety of equipment in a home gym or health club makes it simple to do this.
