Torn ACL Prevention and Recovery

Home Gym Equipment


Even if you belong to a club or team with access to strength training equipment…even if you are a member of that state of the art gym across town…you still want to have your own home gym setup so you can continue to build strength, even if you can’t make it to your usual workout facility

Limitations due to space and expense will play a large role in exactly how you equip your home gym. A set of dumbells and a bench could quite easily serve most of your home gym needs.

Another option is to invest in a machine, such as a Bowflex, that is designed to allow for a wide variety of resistance exercises with a high degree of safety. The Bowflex provides variable resistance through a series of rods that give the user significant control over the load they move for each exercise.

The Total Gym is another all in one exercise machine, but unlike the Bowflex it makes use of the exerciser’s own body weight to provide resistance. Again, you get a wide variety of exercises through using a single machine. To learn more about the Total Gym–and receive a great trial offer–click on the following link:

If the space you have available for your home gym setup is limited, you may want to consider a portable resistance system. One of the best of its kind is the TRX Suspension Trainer. Suspension training leverages one’s own bodyweight and gravity to develop strength, balance, flexibility and joint stability simultaneously. In other words, suspension training is absolutely ideal for developing the kind of fitness that works to protect your knees–and other joints, for that matter.

Fitness Anywhere: Make your body your machine. TRX® Suspension Training® harnesses your own bodyweight to create resistance as you train. That’s all you need – the TRX and your own body. No additional weights required.
