Getting the most out of your workout should be one of the top priorities you want to achieve. Whether you workout for thirty minutes or two hours at a time, you should always have a goal to get the most out of your workout. I personally love to workout 2-3 times a week. At first I was happy to get through my workout program and do all the reps needed to achieve my workout session. But as I got more into perfecting my workout regime, I began to understand that the fitness equipment I was using was very important in maximizing my workout.
These days I workout regularly with a few exercise machines in the gym which really benefit me in so many ways and help to drive improved results. In this article I am going to talk about a few of these exercise machines and how they have helped me in maximizing my workout. Most fitness experts will tell you that when you implement your exercise workout with the right fitness equipment and a nutritious balanced diet, you can really up your game! Lets talk about some of these fitness machines below…
The first machine I want to talk about is the Treadmill. I personally love these machines as I like to walk and run on a regular basis. If its too cold or even too hot outside, I will hop on my treadmill and exercise on it for a good twenty to thirty minutes at a time. I find that the treadmill really helps to maximize my workout as it helps me to warm up and loosen my muscles. It also benefits me during my workout as its very versatile and allows me to perform different endurance workouts such as incline and decline programs (walking/running up hill and downhill). Modern Treadmills also enable you to monitor your heart rate as you exercise. This helps a lot in determining the pace at which you should exercise.
Staying motivated is an important part whilst exercising. If you are a novice when it comes to working out, you’ll probably have experienced a slop in motivation when it comes to your next workout. I find that using my treadmill, which allows for you to dock your ipod or mp3 player really helps to motivate me as I get to listen to all my favorite tunes as I workout.
The Multipurpose weights Gym
Next up on the list is the multipurpose weights gym. Yet another fantastic piece of equipment to help you build strength to all your upper and lower body muscles. The multipurpose weights gym can only be effective as long as you perform the exercise’s correctly. Failure to do so can increase the likely-hood of you obtaining an injury whilst working out. However, performing exercises correctly on a weights gym can really benefit you in terms of building strength to all of your body parts. Its best to follow the advice of a trained fitness professional to help you develop a plan that will enable you to get the most out of using a weights machine.
The Rowing Machine
The last piece of fitness equipment I want to mention is the rowing machine. The thing I like about the rowing machine is that it helps you to develop your cardiovascular workout as well as toning up your muscles in both upper and lower body. As you begin to row in motion, you will notice all your body parts working together in contributing to the rowing stride. A few multiple reps of the rowing stride and you’ll begin to notice how effective this machine is. If I have limited time on my hands, I will use this machine to warm up my muscles and perform about 70-100 reps. I then proceed with lifting weights soon after.
So to conclude… in my personal experience using a treadmill, weights and rowing machine’s really do help to get the most out of your workout regime. They offer versatility and support to help me achieve my fitness goals.
