How to Best Use Strength Machines

When you're using a strength machine, keep these tips to mind so you can use the machine safely and effectively:

  • Your spine should remain straight and abdominal muscles tight
  • The correct posture and settings are diverse and usually machine specific. See each machines' user manual for directions. However, in general:
    • Use complete range of motion
    • Control the weight - no sudden movements, be slow and steady in both movement directions such as up/down or in/out
