If we go to the gym, there are many machines that we can utilize to facilitate our fitness goals. If we do not know how to use one, there are always many fitness instructors here in Singapore who are ready to lend a hand and assist us in our journey through health and wellness.
We do not know it but sometimes we are giving special treatment to our favourite gym machines. We have to consider other machines as well because each machine is designed to match our fitness goals. If in this case we want to lose weight visibly, we have to plan ahead and utilize every gym machine. By utilizing the right machine, we can make the most of our workout and the rate of our progress will be noticeable.
Here are some tips and helpful gym machines that we can consider:
- Starting strong: We have to know that the crucial part is establishing our form. This means that our body should be in the best shape so we can dedicate the right amount of time to strength and cardio training. In simple terms, we have to start strong. We have to remember to train our full body from the upper to lower and cardio. We should not concentrate on one aspect of the training. If we want to start strong, we should consider the overhead press. The machine is safe especially if we are new to strength training. Overhead press will target the upper and shoulder muscles. We can also consider Ab crunch (which works with the belly fat), Leg press (improving the endurance of the leg muscles) and Lat pull down (which strengthens the biceps, shoulders and of course the back).
- Cardio: After mastering the weights and strengthening, it is time that we start on our cardio training. We have to spend at least forty five minutes of cardio exercise for optimal weight loss. We can consider the Stationary bike; cycling is the best exercise for weight loss. We can also utilize Treadmill. In a Treadmill, we can set the incline level which is helpful for a flatter tummy. Eliptical trainer is also an important machine that we should utilize. The Eliptical machine can improve the mobility of legs and arms.
- Mats: If we hate machines and its complications, we can resort to traditional mats. There are many exercises that we can consider even when we are in the mats. For example, push-ups can make a difference. We can also consider crunches which can strengthen the core and the glutes.
This should be enough. If the machines are used right, we can see the result immediately.
