The fitness world is large and sometimes difficult to navigate. With TrainAway you can easily find a gym close by and also find the advantage of good exercise centers.
Why should you use machines in the gym? Machines are beneficial when you’re new to gym-going or don’t have your full strength or balance yet. Equipment by manufacturers like Technogym and Lifefitness have useful how-to placards on their machines so you can quickly see how to use them.
Have you ever felt overwhelmed by gym equipment or unsure of what types of exercises you should be doing? We’ve got you covered. Here are 7 fitness machines and exercises you can use them for, with accompanying video tutorials.
1. Horizontal Seated Leg Press
Right here you’re working out quads, glutes, hamstrings, and calf muscles. This machine is a useful way to eventually graduate to weighted squats or just work on your squat form or strength.
2. Lat Pull-Down
Here it’s the shoulders, the largest muscle of the back, that you’re concentrating on. This exercise is fantastic in helping you work on your strength and form for push-ups.
3. Cable Bicep Bar
As the name implies, this exercise is all about those arms. This machine works on your technique, form, and posture.
4. Cable Triceps Bar (Or Triceps Pushdown)
Work on your triceps and get rid of jiggly arms at the same time. This exercise is another great way to concentrate on your push-up and pull-up strength, form, and technique.
5. Chest Press
This machine targets your whole upper body: chest, biceps, and triceps. The action is virtually identical to that of a push-up and will help you improve at that exercise. This machine hits several muscle groups at once and is ideal for getting ready to do more compound exercises later on.
6. Hanging Leg Raise
Get ready to show off your abs after using this one! This machine targets your core and hip flexors.
7. Cardio: Rowing Machine
Last but not least, a machine which works out your whole body while improving cardio resistance. This is a great way to switch up your cardio routine so you’re not on the treadmill every single time. This machine also helps you work on your balance.
