Any workout regime should include time with free weights. You don’t have to be bench pressing 200 pounds to benefit from lifting and moving weights either. Lighter weights can help to build muscular endurance and a set of dumbbells will let you adjust your weight to comfortable levels and slowly build intensity as your strength improves. If you’re going to try your hand at heavier weights then you’ll want to incorporate exercise benches to help you safely move the load without injury. You might also want to look at weightlifting belts and grab a wrist support or two as well. These accessories help stabilise your lower back and wrists which can come under pressure when lifting heavier weights.
If you don’t have room for benches, barbells, dumbbells and other free weights, then multi gyms are a good alternative. These machines incorporate multiple weightlifting exercises into one machine letting you work out your whole body.
If you want a workout that helps tone and strengthen your body but also drives your heart rate through the roof grab a punch bag and go a few rounds. You’ll be sweating and aching in no time. Rowing machines offer a similar workout that burns calories, strengthens your body and improves your fitness.
