There are millions of people who would love to build new muscle so that way they can look great during the summertime. However, despite the great demand for building new muscle, there are a ton of people out there who are unaware of how to accomplish this goal. Even among those who are vaguely aware of how you can go about accomplishing this goal they may not know exactly how to do it the most efficiently. There are several pieces of equipment for gyms that you can use in order to speed up the development of new muscle. Let’s take a closer look at some of these.
Seated Leg Press Machine
The seated leg press machine is one of the staples for any serious gym goers lead development. These are great because they allow you to isolate and target specifically the muscles of your lower body and lower back. In most cases people will be able to lift more weight using one of these machines then they will be able to use almost any other device. This means that you will be able to put more resistance on the muscles of your legs using one of these machines than almost any other machine.
While squats are absolutely essential for good development of your lower body they can oftentimes be hampered by an undeveloped lower back. The Smith machine thinks some of the stress off of your core during the squat exercise by eliminating the ability for the bar to be freestanding. This will allow you to focus more specifically on your lower body during your training sessions.
Cardio Row Machine
There is no better way to kill two birds with one stone than by using a cardio rowing machine. These are incredible machines because you will be able to simultaneously improve your cardiovascular health and build strength in your upper body. This makes it an easy way to get a combination of both anaerobic and aerobic exercise during the same training session. Make sure that you find a machine that has variable levels of resistance so that as you get stronger you will be able to make it more difficult.
The upper body has a ton of different muscles that you need to train if you want to have a consistent and even development of your muscle mass throughout the body. The preacher curl will allow you to specifically target which muscles you are trying to develop in your arms in a way that is difficult to replicate with other machines. These are one of the best ways to develop your forearms as well.
