Sure, strength training can be performed in the comfort of your own home, but it's safest if you pump iron using hydraulic exercise equipment.

Unlike free weights, or adjustable stacked weight machines, the resistance provided by hydraulic fitness equipment depends on the force exerted by the user. Hydraulic fitness equipment utilizes hydraulic cylinders that are filled with a liquid, usually oil, instead of weights to produce resistance. Therefore, the harder and faster you push and pull; the more resistance the machine applies.

Hydraulic exercises are often prescribed to patients recuperating from injury because they are less likely to cause sore, strained or torn muscles. Hydraulic fitness machines are considered safe for people of any age, ability and for those who traditional weight lifting workouts aren't an option because they never apply more weight then you can handle, so you won't require a spotter. Traditional weight training carries a risk of injury due to over-exertion or improper form that can deter a beginner strength trainer from working out. The fluid motion of hydraulic resistance training has the same results as stacked weight training it tones the same muscles and raises the metabolism without the risk of injury.
