Multi Gym Workout Routine

Multi Gym Workout Routine

If you like working out from home, or don't have the time to hit the gym, one of the options you have for staying fit is the multi-gym workout routine...
There are different ways to achieve fitness and one of them is by using a multi-gym workout routine. A multi-gym is a single machine on which you can work multiple muscles ranging from the shoulder muscles to the leg muscles. One thing you have to remember though, is that just working out isn't enough to achieve your fitness goals, you also need to maintain healthy eating and lifestyle habits. Following correct form and technique is also important to get desired results and avoid muscle cramps and injuries. Remember to do at least 4-5 minute warm up exercises before you start your multi gym workout.
Lot of people discontinue their exercise regimen due to lack of motivation, so make sure you do things like watching exercise videos on the Internet or subscribing to health and fitness magazines. Set realistic goals, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Ronnie Coleman spent years working out in a gym to get to where they are now. Try and stick to your routine and don't miss out on workouts if you want to reach your goals quickly.
A multi-gym can give you a full body workout, and is a great way to stay in shape. The exercises that you can do on the multi gym will help you build and tone your chest, back, bicep, shoulder, and leg muscles. If you want good results, you need to maintain correct form and breathing techniques and push yourself when doing the workout.
Leg Extension
Position your legs under the foamed pad, rest your back but keep it straight, and look straight ahead. Now lift your legs up so that they are almost parallel to the ground, once they are up hold the position and then go back down. Exhale as you bring your legs up and inhale as you let them back down. Repeat the movement for desired repetitions.
Bicep Curl
Grab the handle at the end of the cable, place your hands shoulder width apart and keep your elbows close to your body. Now bring the handle close to your biceps by bending your elbows, squeeze your biceps as you bring the handle up. Exhale as you come up and inhale as you let the handle back down, repeat movement for desired repetitions.
Chest Press
This can be done either in the sitting position or lying down depending on the type of machine you have. Grab the bars slightly wider than shoulder width apart and squeeze your chest muscles and push the bars. Try and push the bars straight ahead and concentrate on the chest muscles as you do this exercise. Exhale as you push on the handles and inhale as you come back, repeat the movement for desired repetitions.
Shoulder Press
Position yourself so that your back is resting properly and the hand position slightly wider than shoulder width apart. Push the bars over your head so that your arms are fully extended, once you are all the way up bend your elbows and come back to the starting position. Exhale as you push on the handles and inhale as you come back, repeat the movement for desired repetitions.
Lat Pulldown
The elusive 'V' shape can be achieved if you do this exercise on a regular basis. Grab the overhead bar with your hands slightly wider than shoulder width length. Now slightly tilt your back and pull the bar down to your chest level, hold for 1 count and then go back up. Exhale as you pull the bar towards your chest and inhale as you go back to the starting position. Repeat the movement for desired repetitions.
Use these exercises to plan your workout schedule, you can train the chest and shoulder muscles on day 1, back and bicep muscles on day 3 and the legs and abs muscles on day 5. You will just need an exercise mat for working the ab muscles, do exercises like crunches, reverse crunches, and leg raises. On day 2 and 4 do a cardio routine, try to have a cardio routine that lasts for 35-45 minutes to see good results. Follow this routine for at least 8-12 weeks, before you judge it.
