Which Machines Offer a Full Body Workout? | Ask A Trainer | LA Fitness


Hi and welcome back to another episode of Ask a Trainer I’m your host Candice Currie joined here today with Pro Results® Trainer, Morgan Connors. How are you doing? Pretty good. How about yourself? I’m doing great and I have another question for you. Today’s question comes to us from Adrien M. she asks, what are a few machines that will give you a complete body workout, and how many sets and reps should she start out with? Fantastic. So, when we think about doing a full body exercise program, we might steer away from thinking full body. We always want to give, you know, our muscle an opportunity to rest after we’ve worked them out and the best way to do that is actually zoning. So, here at the gym, what we would really want to promote is kind of going from the belt up and from the belt down. Getting that good upper body workout, that’s going to be like our pectoral fly, rear delt, chest press, bicep curl, tricep extension, all really fantastic. And then that good lower body exercise and let that upper body rest. That’s going to be like a seated leg press, leg extension, or even a hamstring curl is going to be really, really, good for that. I mean you can always come in here and we can structure out a week’s worth of programming for you with a personal trainer. Which if you were going to come in with a trainer, we actually have some specialized equipment which is going to be good for that head to toe, toe to head, and coming in more times throughout the week so we can get that real good zoning taken care of. Reps, on the other hand, that’s going to be a fantastic question for your trainer. When we think about wanting to put on muscle we want to go with a lower rep and higher weight-based program. Whereas, if we’re wanting to maintain and get lean or recover, we’re actually going to want to go with a higher rep and lower weight program, so your trainer would be able to negotiate that out for you. Perfect, that’s great to know. Well, thank you for sending us in your question.
