Strength Training Equipment Guide

When it comes to strength training at home there are dozens of options.  We have compiled some of the best here, from full home gyms, to smaller and more affordable equipment to get you started whatever your budget.

Home Gyms:

With systems from Bowflex and Golds there are two options for a full home gym, either stacks of weights, or the Bowflex Power Bar system.  Both work really well, Bowflex have built a huge business on the back of their PowerBars.  Other systems use more traditional stacks of weights.  They are simple to use and understand, but they are more heavy and if you live in an upstairs apartment and want to be quiet might be a better choice.

The most popular brand is Bowflex, with their 552 SelectTech model. however for quality, performance and ease of use we would recommend the PowerBlock Elite 90. Adjustable Dumbbell Reviews
