The decision has been made and the will and desire to start the healthy regime as begun. As you stand and take a look at the new home gym in the corner of your room, you begin to wonder how it works! I suppose the first thing to do is try a gym in Altona for a day and see how the machines are used and then in the comfort of your home, learn and enjoy.
The variety of facilities is there for a purpose and to aid the body now, to become the body of tomorrow. Sitting down, you reach for the bar above your head, this the lat pull down designed to tone the upper body as you pull it down with the required weights and the neck and chin, back and waistline is being worked out at the same time, plus the skin is being stretched to keep it youthful, whatever age you are. This is a great exercise when sat down, especially if having a health problem you are suffering with, the chin and face will tone up eventually, if having a double chin.
The shoulder press is excellent for the back, shoulders and upper arms to tone the excess weight which can tend to stick there. A daily routine will ensure these areas will improve and you will want to show these off by clothes that do so.
The leg press is for the specific use for strengthening the legs as they move the weights up and down by using the muscles and making them work. Please be careful not to start with heavy weights, start with the lower range slowly and build up to the high range when you are ready to do so.
The chest press, when used helps to tone up the muscles in that area, by pulling weights side wards towards the middle of your body. For the men it will give them great pecks and for women, a better and fuller bust which can increase slightly due to the muscle being worked over a time and give a youthful appearance. As the top half of your body is shown more, this will give you more confidence to show more than you would have done so before!
The arm curl is for the biceps in the upper arm and shoulders, by pulling weights down and up with your hands, keeping the elbows in towards the body, sat down. This is another way of lifting the free weights but on a machine instead and enabling the user who might have disabilities that require them to sit down and have support while they exercise.
The low rowing is done by pulling the weights forward as you move forward and this will exercise the whole of the body at the same time. You could call it a complete workout as rowing uses every muscle to do this form of exercise but not moving anywhere just as the aerobic bikes do.
The bench press offers the variety of exercises which consist of sit ups, lifting weights and by laying down on your back lifting free weights, in fact the list can be endless. It is the support for the back or the core of your body to have the balance just right when using the home gym.
