Power towers are a top piece of home workout apparatus that enable you to perform a whole variety of exercises using only one machine. For this practical reason, they are popular amongst people building gyms in their homes as their sturdy construction is narrow and high so they do not take up too much floor space whilst providing versatile and varied sessions.
So what can you do on a power tower? Well it depends on the stations that it has, but most will let you work your arms, shoulders, chest, back and abs by doing pull-ups and chin-ups with different grips, knee and leg raises, tricep dips, trunk twists and plenty more exercises to develop your upper body and core strength.
These metal frame-like trainers will often have handles on the base for doing deep press-ups and variations of this drill. Due to the sheer variety of possible exercises you should certainly allow enough space around the trainer to be able to access all the stations and exercise in comfort without feeling cramped or restricted. For example, some activities will require space to stretch out or swing and twist your legs.
You’ll find padded back and arm areas that deliver cushioning and support as you push yourself and train effectively. And as your fitness improves you can ensure your performance and results don’t plateau by adding a weighted vest or other weight accessories such as ankle and wrist weights.
Why not add a power tower to your home today and get efficient workouts for a toned and stronger core and upper body!
