Weight lifting machines are an excellent way to learn weight training. But it is always advised but some professionals to do some warm up or stretching exercises before starting to work out on weight lifting machines. The correct way to use a weight lifting machine has been explained below:
• Start with machines
It has been advised by some of the professionals to always exercise with some simple machines like pulleys, adjustable weights and levers and then proceed to the weight lifting machines. This would save you from extreme muscle cramps which generally happen at the initial stages.
• Adjusting the machine’s seat
Before starting to work out, always set the seat to a correct position that would provide more effectiveness and comfort to your exercises. For example; if a person is tall, he or she should set the seat low and vice versa.
• Selection of the type of weight lifting machine
Always try to figure out which exact machine is actually working on which specific muscle at the very first workout session. This routine should be practised for 2-3 days every week. It would be best if 3 sets of 12 repetitions are practised on every machine.
• Things to be done during intervals
Professionals say not to stay at rest for more than 60 seconds. It would be best if one moves on to the next machine just after completing the previous without keeping any time lag in between. This engages one muscle group to work while the other is at rest.
Never act like a fool while using a machine. Always take the help of you trainers to get the efficient results from your work out sessions.
