Weight machines ,for newbies

  1. Weight machines ,for newbies


    Hi
    Ive got a multi gym - is this going to hit all the groups required or do I need extras?

    Biceps i can see no options for, so ill do dumbell curls.

    Bearing in mind this is newbie stuff so i wont hit any weight issues until later.

    Anyone here workout just on a multigym at home?

    If you have never worked out seriously then ya, it's better then nothing. In all honesty, just buy a flat bench with the standard bar and 300lbs of plates. Bench squat deadlift will do more then any machines

    This ^ Nothing like a nice bench; 300lbs of Olympic Weights; two bars (One for Bench; another Multi-Angle Curl Bar)
    That's all you would need, next add on a rack for Squats.

    You donít need fancy equipment for biceps. Dumbbells and barbells is more than sufficient. The only thing I EVER add is some cable curls, but thatís not necessary, just a nice bonus. Barbell Curls, dumbbell Curls, incline Curls, hammer curls, cross body hammer curls, dumbbell preacher curls on an incline bench, concentration curls, offset grip curls. Itís MORE than enough!

    I personally prefer dumbbells to barbells for home training, but I also donít donít exclusively train at home either.

    I bought adjustable dumbbells that right now go from 10 to 70lbs each, and a foldable bench that goes from incline to flat and decline. Very space efficient, and plenty to hit chest, shoulders, and arms. Back I just add in some Pullups to round out the Rows. Legs is a little harder, but still doable, but not ideal for sure.

    I like that I donít need a spot for dumbbells. Great for solo home workouts.

    I also made a TRX-cable knock-off with steel chains, quick link locks, and PVC pipe. Great for Rows, and even things like curls, Face Pulls, push ups, and assisted one leg squats.
