Ways to Improve Strength Training on Machines

  • Always warm up.

  • Be sure a machine is adjusted correctly to prevent fatigue, pain or injury.

  • Be sure the keys used to set the weight level are firmly in place.

  • Work at a slow, controlled pace and complete the entire range of motion for each exercise. Movements should take a second or two in each direction.

  • Exhale whenever movement phases are difficult; inhale during less intense phases.

  • When doing multiple sets to work a specific muscle group, rest a minute between each set to let muscles recover. You can work a different muscle group without pausing.
