Fitness centers have a wide variety of equipment for members to use, from weight machines to medicine balls. If you haven't used the equipment before, the thought of using it incorrectly, especially when other people may be watching, is intimidating. It may not be possible to find an employee to provide assistance, forcing you to decide between trying unfamiliar equipment or leaving without completing a workout.
Using Weight Machines
Look for instructions. Most machines have a short set of instructions and illustration affixed to them.
Find the adjustments.
The machines' seats and benches adjust to the height of the user, and you can adjust moving parts to accommodate your leg or arm length.
Adjust the machine so your joints line up with the pivot points of the machines, your legs (if sitting) are flat on the floor, and the pads rest comfortably against your limbs.
Choose a weight that's not too heavy, so you don't run the risk of injuring yourself if you find you can't complete a repetition. If you can complete ten repetitions easily, choose a slightly heavier weight.
Lift the weights slowly, concentrating on keeping the proper form and exhaling during the lift. Don't adjust your position to lift the weight because you will not get the full benefit of the machine, and you may injure yourself.
Avoid letting the weight clang against the rest of the stack at the end of the repetition, because this annoys others.
Wipe your sweat off the machine with your gym towel before leaving it.
Strength training develops strength and size of the skeletal muscles which help with flexibility, improved cardiac function and improved joint function. Workout machines that you find at gyms pair weights against your personal strength. You can easily build muscles by using these strength machines. Toning your core and outer muscles and enhancing bone density are some of the benefits of strength training. Increased metabolism occurs for several hours after a workout, which promotes fat loss.
