Having your own home gym with free weights is not only convenient but gives you freedom to work out anytime you want. You save time and money, have no costly gym fees, no driving time, and no child care is needed.
Having a home gym with free weights and a machine for aerobic activity is perfect combination for your home gym workout routine. Exercise and cardiovascular fitness are essential in a balanced fitness program.
It's important to include stretching and resistance to help build and tone muscles, burn fat and help prevent injury. Variety is key to enjoying and keeping you motivated for a successful exercise workout program.
Setting goals that are realistic can be a huge motivating factor in sticking to your home gym workout routine. These goals keep your mind focused on rewards you will see and feel.
Once you start your exercise workout program and experience good results, you will become even more dedicated to achieving your goals. When beginning an exercise program here are a few important things to consider:
1. Decide how many times a week you are willing to dedicate yourself to this exercise workout program. For any real benefits to occur, your home gym workout routine should be done at least 3 to 4 times a week. It is also important to set aside a couple of days each week for complete rest.
The 4 Most Common Attributes of a Quality TreadmillWritten by Aaron Co
With all marketing hype consumers are facing today, it’s quite hard to differentiate a quality treadmill from an inferior treadmill. That’s why I researched on what quality treadmills have that inferior treadmills don’t. This article, The 4 Most Common Attributes of a Quality Treadmill, was result of that research.
The traits below are vital to a treadmill’s performance and are things that you’ll always find in a quality treadmill.
One of most important attributes of a quality treadmill is its horsepower or HP. There are 2 ways to measure HP of a motor, through “peak duty” or “continuous duty”. Treadmills with a continuous duty horsepower mean that motor can maintain a certain horsepower whole workout. Peak duty horsepower means treadmill may be able to reach that horsepower briefly, but won’t be able to sustain it.
Most inferior treadmills try to make their machines look better by listing their peak duty rather than their continuous duty horsepower. Quality treadmills have nothing to hide and would always put their continuous duty horsepower upfront for everyone to see.
When I say power, what I really mean is that motor should be able to pump power with ease throughout whole machine. For example, a 2.5HP continuous duty motor in an entry level model is powerful, but same cannot be said if that motor is in a commercial treadmill, since it would be way too weak to make huge commercial unit function.
