If you are looking for a simple piece of home machinery that gives a powerful and complete full-body workout, consider a power tower. A power tower lets you use only your body weight to perform some incredibly powerful exercises. With a fairly small footprint, they are the perfect addition to a home gym, or even a small corner in your house if you don’t have space for a full home gym.

Power Tower Station

Power tower stations are especially good for building strength in the arms, shoulders, back, and core. Some of the exercises you can do with a power tower include:

  • Triceps dips: Face the tower and  raise yourself up into position, holding the triceps bars firmly. Cross your legs slightly behind you. Lower yourself down slowly so that your upper arms are parallel to the floor and then slowly push yourself back up. In addition to your triceps, dips also work your shoulders and pecs. For more of a chest workout, simply lean forward a bit as you are doing the exercise.
  • Pull-ups/chin-ups: Face the power tower and  raise yourself up so you are hanging from the chin-up bar. Keep your grip facing outward to do pull-ups and inward to do chin-ups. Pull yourself up as much as you can, then lower yourself down slowly. Perform each step slowly and deliberately to get the most out of the exercise.
  • Leg/knee raises: Place your back against the padded backrest and your forearms on the arm pads. You may need to lift yourself up a bit to get into the proper position. Hang slightly and then lift your legs using your abdominal muscles. Try to avoid swinging to better target your core muscles. There are a few options with this type of workout: You can lift your knees into your chest, your legs straight out in front of you, or lift them at a diagonal and alternate sides to target the obliques.
  • Push-ups: You can do push-ups on any mat or flat surface, but using a power tower can make them much more challenging. While not all power towers have the push-up station option, using the push-up station instead of a flat surface increases the range of motion available during the exercise and allows you to further expand your chest into the push-up.

Though these may seem like simple or basic exercises, they are actually quite challenging for a novice. However, power tower exercises can easily be modified for anyone of any fitness level. Someone with more experience can use a weight belt or hold weight plates to increase the resistance of most workouts.

One great option is the Marcy Power Tower TC-3515. This power tower has multiple stations which target different areas and muscles of your body.  The push-up station can also double as a step for other exercises.
