Strength Training with Smooth’s New Home Gym S490June 7th, 2011
Smooth Fitness has always pushed fitness technology further to offer customers the highest quality treadmill and elliptical machines possible. Smooth Fitness is now offering the same great innovations and quality standards in the new S490 Home Gym. Home gyms are a great way to get into shape and tone muscle without membership fees or crowded fitness clubs.
The S490 is a very versatile piece of fitness equipment. The user is able to perform chest, shoulder, back, arm, abdominal, and leg exercises on one machine. The convenience of a home gym system is determined by how quickly and easily the machine can switch between exercises. For example, super sets are a great strength training technique, but require no rest between different workout sets. At a gym club, during peak hours, this can be nearly impossible as you will inevitably be interrupted by another member needing the same machine. With a home gym you can quickly change between workout types, for example, switching from a lateral pull down to an upright row can be done in seconds.
Other strength training exercises that can be performed on a home gym like the S490 include, the chest press, pectoral fly, squat, tricep press down, standing leg curl, incline chest press, and many more. However, in order to get the most out of any strength training workout it is important to incorporate cardiovascular fitness as well. Pair the S490 home gym with any of Smooth’s ellipticals, treadmills, or exercise bikes and you are well on your way towards an incredible workout experience from the comfort of your home. The Smooth Fitness S490 blends together everything that is great about Smooth Fitness, quality, innovation, and versatility all into one compact and affordable home gym.
