Whether you're stuck indoors or making the most of a hotel gym (maybe even your own home gym), the effects of weight training are undeniable. They are incredibly versatile and allow you to target the whole body or edit certain parts. Switch on light to increase the intensity of a HIIT circuit. Go hard to maximize hypertrophy by working through supersets or time under tension. They can replace barbells and kettlebells and help you achieve your goals, be it weight loss, mass, endurance, or just a sporty looking body.
