Reshaping Your Body with Body Building Equipment

By Nicky Pilkington

Strength training is one of the most rigorous training workouts that you can experience. All the work that you put forth during a body building workout benefits you in several different ways. By performing body building exercises just a few days each week you can increase your stamina and metabolism, and build lean, strong muscles. The metabolic changes will happen naturally. To sculpt your muscles you will need to use specific equipment. The equipment you need to use depends on the muscles you want to redefine.

Arms are a part of the body that just about everyone wants to reshape. Free weights offer the most flexibility because you can easily increase the intensity by increasing the amount you lift. There are also a variety of styles to fit individual needs. Traditional barbells that range in weight from 10 to 40 or more pounds are ideal when you have a weight bench and you want a rigorous routine for building large muscles. You basically perform your reps, increasing the weight as you progress through your routine. When you travel or if you are interested in slight definition, you will want to invest in a smaller set of dumbbells. If you have back problems, aquatic barbells may be a better option. You use this equipment in a swimming pool where the water provides support.

In addition to free weights, you can also use a dip stand, pull-up bars, or pushup stands to work your arm muscles. This equipment is versatile and enables you to work your entire upper body. If you are interested in bulking up your muscles, you simply need to perform additional reps using this equipment a few times each week. If you want to tone your muscles you will need to perform fewer reps several times a week.

Reshaping your legs is easy with body building equipment. While you can use free weights to define your leg muscles, machines that enable you to perform leg curls or leg raises provide the most benefits. There are very few equipment choices outside of large machines for performing these exercises. Most home gyms contain a leg press or calf machine for you to work your leg muscles.

If you're interested in redefining multiple muscles, a home gym is probably a better solution than individual equipment. Most home gyms contain "stations that feature equipment for a particular muscle group. You have two exercise options when using a home gym. You can use a station every time you exercise, or you can work a specific muscle group each day you choose to workout. Whichever option you choose, it's a good idea to follow a body building program so that you don't overwork your muscles and so that you obtain the results you desire. Smith Machines and power cages are other all-in-one systems that enable you to work multiple muscle groups. The difference in these two systems is how you perform exercises. Smith Machines basically include slots for different weight amounts, while power cages include pulleys that make lifting easier and safer.
