Upon rising this morning I felt totally ready to hit the streets for a trek with my weighted vest, that is until I opened up the front door to get an idea of the outside temp. The thermometer read 24, but with the wind chill I expect it felt a bit closer to the teens. I'm still trying to keep some minor cold symptoms at bay, so rather than run right out into the Arctic I opted to do some intervals on my stair climber - not exactly the workout I had in mind, but a decent workout none-the-less.
You don't necessarily need to pound the pavement to get a good workout or elevate your heart rate, in fact one great indoor workout not only gets your blood pumping, but it's also one of the very best stress relievers. Hitting a heavy bag melts away all of the anxiety from a rough day at the office and will help develop your lungs, your "wind" and it will help develop a strong back and shoulders.
If you want to add this valuable piece of training equipment into your home gym, but don't know where to look first - you can't go wrong with any of the following.
