Marcy stack home gyms are great for anyone who works out, whether they are a novice or an experienced lifter. Stack machines feature a stack of weight plates and a pin to select the weight you wish to use. There are also pulleys and levers to create the resistance needed to help you build muscle.
Target multiple muscle groups:Many of the Marcy stack home gyms contain all the accessories needed for a full body workout. An overhead pulley system works your upper body and core while; press arms work the shoulders and chest. The included leg developer with foam roller pads delivers lower body workouts. There are endless numbers of exercises that you can do on a stack home gym.
Compact design: Compared to a Smith Machine, stack home gyms contain multiple weight plates and the additional equipment you need in a much smaller space.
Saves you time: Marcy stack home gyms will save you valuable time because their unique design utilizes pulleys and cables connected to a stack of weights, meaning you never need to waste time loading or unloading weight plates.
Increased safety:The design of a weight stack machine allows you to change the weight without assistance from a spotter, by simply moving the pin to the chosen weight. There is no risk of the weights falling on you when working out at home or alone.
Reduced injuries:Each exercise has a specific set of instructions that should be followed. Using free weights or barbells depends entirely on the proper form and range of motion. Not doing the exercise correctly can increase the risk for injury. This risk is decreased when using weight stack machines because there is less room for error.
A few quick tips. First, try using an exercise journal to keep track of the weight and adjustments you use for each exercise. Keeping track lets you see your progress as time goes on.
When you first start, be wary of the amount of weight you are using for each workout station. Begin with a lower weight and build up slowly as you see fit. No matter what your fitness goals are, you don't want to overexert or injure yourself by pushing too hard.
Take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with each exercise you are about to do. Though many stack machines look similar, they have different features (e.g. some have a leg extension, leg press, chest press, etc. while others do not.)
Double check the weight pins to make sure that they are in the correct place, and arrange the seating and other movable parts so they fit your needs. Make sure to read the instructions closely before using your new Marcy stack gym to understand the proper form and adjustments needed to be comfortable on the machine.
