What is the Difference Between a Home Gym and a Functional Trainer?

When it comes to working out at home, you have two main options: a home gym or a functional trainer. Both have their own pros and cons, so it’s important to know the difference before making a decision.

A home gym is a great option for people who want to have all of their workout equipment in one place. Home gyms usually come with a weight bench, some type of weightlifting equipment (barbells, dumbbells, etc.), and sometimes other cardio equipment like an elliptical or exercise bike. The downside to home gyms is that they can be expensive and take up a lot of space.

A functional trainer is a more versatile piece of equipment that can be used for both strength training and cardio workouts. Functional trainers typically have a weight stack, pulleys, and cables that allow you to do a variety of exercises. They’re also usually more compact than home gyms, making them a good option for people who don’t have a lot of space. The downside to functional trainers is that they may not have as many features as a home gym, and they can be more expensive.

Which Exercises Can I Do On My F10 Trainer?

Different Squat Variations

The squat is a classic exercise that can be made even more challenging with the addition of a functional trainer. Squats performed with weight will be a guaranteed way to build your lower body muscles.

You can give a try to this variation on goblet squats. Instead of holding a dumbbell or kettlebell, hold the cable attachment in front of you with your arms bent.

There are two major variations of the cable squat: high or low. The main difference is where you place your pulleys. Throughout the exercise, keep your arms fully extended and descend into a full squat. Because of the additional resistance, these variations may be a bit more challenging than regular squats. You can also use a functional trainer in other lower-body exercises, like lunges and step-ups.

Wood Chop

Functional training machines can mimic chopping wood, which works your shoulders and core muscles in all directions. The axe can be tiresome and so is this exercise. But we think it is really effective and it has some serious benefits to your arms and core.

You’ll start with a pulley device mounted to the ceiling above shoulder height. Next, attach a handle or rope and grab both handles firmly. Now reach for the handle in front of you and pull it towards the floor. You’re moving your arms in a chopping motion like you would when cutting down logs for firewood.

Different Variations of Rows

There are many different iterations of rowing as an exercise. Cable row exercises can be a bit different than aerobic or cardio types of rows. Cable rows target your back and arm muscles, giving them functional strength. You can perform this type of row while standing or seated at a machine.

Bicep Curl

Think you've never done a bicep curl? You may have, but more than likely not the way we're talking about it today. When people say bicep curl, they are talking about a basic exercise that is easy to learn and can be performed with many different types of equipment. Most people associate this exercise with dumbbells.

The bicep curl is an effective way to train the muscles in the back of your arm, and it can also be done on a functional trainer. There are a few options available for completing this type of movement.

Tricep Extension

One of the most common and powerful exercises you can do on a functional trainer is tricep extensions. There are lots of different variations, including a straight bar or rope attachment. When performing a tricep extension, start with your arms bent and lower hands toward your chest.


To start, you have to pull the handlebar or rope down so that your arms are extended by your side. You'll notice the most difficult part will be the triceps, which are at the back of your arms.



What is a Functional Trainer Used For?

A functional trainer is a versatile piece of equipment that can be used for a variety of exercises. Functional trainers are typically adjustable, so that you can change the resistance and angle of the exercise to target different muscles. Functional trainers can be used for exercises such as lunges, shoulder presses, rows, and bicep curls.

Can You Bench Press On a Functional Trainer?

Yes, you can bench press on a functional trainer. However, you will need to use a special attachment that is designed for this purpose. Most functional trainers come with a variety of attachments, so be sure to check which one is right for your machine before attempting the exercise.
