Actually, most of this information is just as easily crossed over to any form of workout. Just because the examples are given based on someone with a gym membership / fitness center / home gym does not make them inapplicable to other scenarios.
Those who do strength training at home with dumbbells, resistance bands, towels, or even with no weight at all can do well by slowing down the motions. Just a simple pushup or abdominal crunch, for example, can be done fast and jerky or slowed down. When we slow it down, we can FEEL the increased effort it takes to control the motion.
Those who walk or jog or run outdoors can do intervals just as easily as those on gym cardio machines.
Even supersets can apply just as well to doing strength training at home - by picking multiple exercises that work the same muscle group.
