Full Body Machine Workout

Lots of people hate on machines, but they can be a great way to build strength and muscular endurance when used correctly. This full body machine workout is designed for a traditional gym setting and is a good way to change up your routine from time to time.

Tips for getting the most out of a full body machine workout:

  • Use slow and controlled reps so that your muscles are under constant tension

  • Use a rep speed of 2 to 3 seconds up; and 2 to 3 seconds down.

  • Pause in the contracted position for 1 to 3 seconds before lowering the weight back down.

  • Never lock out your joints or rest at the bottom. This can strain the joints and creates a loss of tension in the target muscle group.

Rest as much as needed throughout the workout and make sure to drink plenty of water.
