It also saves you money, as you only need to invest in one piece of equipment, although it may seem expensive at first glance. In this article, we will give you some multi-gym exercises, that will let you create a good workout plan. No more excuses, and skipping workouts, just because of you were too lazy to go to the gym
Multi Gym Exercises
There are two primary chest exercises for multi gym machine, which are chest press and pec dec/chest flyes. The chest press is the classic movement, similar to pushups or the barbell bench press, and it will also target your triceps and front delts. Pec dec/flyes, on the other hand, will isolate your pecs more, which is why it is an excellent idea to superset these two movements. Some machines also have a dip station, which is a great bodyweight chest exercise.
As for direct delt work, you can perform shoulder press, but also side lateral raises, and front deltoid raises if your machine has low pulleys. Every multi gym machine has at some variations of lat pulldowns, and rowing exercises. Make sure to use different grip styles when performing these, to challenge your back muscles from various angles. As for multi gym abs exercises, you will usually have the option to perform ab crunches or to do cable crunches if you have a high pulley position. Some multi gym stations also have Roman chairs, which are great for developing abs.
While you will work arms on almost every chest/back movement, direct biceps and triceps training are also possible, again, using cables and adjusting the pulley station. Some multi gyms also have a preacher curl station, which will hammer your biceps. As for multi gym leg workouts, there are some options on every machine. You will usually have leg curls, and leg extensions, which will hit your hamstrings/quads, allowing you to develop some nice-looking legs. However, make sure to include some (bodyweight) squats and lunges too, as only working extensions and curls are not challenging enough for most people.
Multi gyms are a great investment for any home gym. Sure, at first glance, they seem expensive. But, the amount of utility you get from each of these machines is well worth the money. You will get multiple gym machines all in one, which will save you a tremendous amount of space.
