I have never been a huge fan of infomercial home fitness equipment due to 99% of it being absolute crap. However, there are some amazing products that can be the foundation of an amazing home gym.
Bowflex has been doing a great job of changing the way home fitness equipment is being both produced and perceived in the marketplace which is great news for consumers.
One of my absolute favorites is their SelectTech Dumbbells. These dumbbells look like a large set of Dumbbells but you can literally dial up the amount of weight you want to lift, pick up the dumbbell and it is the weight that you want it to be. They have one set that ranges from 5lbs to 52.5lbs and a larger set ranging from 10lbs to 90lbs.
The days of having a bunch of dumbbells rolling around your home workout area are over!Aside from the space-saving aspect of this product, the most important feature is that they offer you countless options for the number and types of exercises you can do. It is no secret that training with free weights is one of the best forms of resistance training, so to have a product that allows you endless variation in the comfort of your own home is priceless.
When you purchase a stand and workout bench along with the Dumbbells, you have a rock solid set-up that will allow you to train all parts of your body with endless variation.
Obviously, the key to any form of weight training is to use proper form and technique, so if you haven’t lifted in a long time, purchase a couple personal training sessions with a trainer and have him or her show you some basic moves to build your knowledge base and then move forward from there!
It isn’t as expensive as you think to get a few sessions with a trainer and it is money well spent because it is an investment in your health….Hello?!!
