Buying Guide: What to Know Before Buying Upper Body Equipment


The main benefit obtained when working out with Upper Body Machines is the toning and the strengthening of the muscles in the upper part of the body, such as the arms, deltoids, biceps, triceps, pectorals, shoulders and back. Using these muscle strengthening machines, it is possible to carry out with ease such complete and efficient exercises as Butterfly, Chest Press, Biceps Curl, Chest pulls, etc. Exercise possibilities vary according to the machine, as many have been developed to work out a particular group of muscles.

Type of machine: According to resistance

These types of muscle strengthening machines are used to work different muscles in the upper body. According to the exercise carried out, some make it possible to strengthen diverse muscle groups, but others have been specifically designed to work a specific muscle group such as the biceps or the chest. You should choose the model depending on which muscles you wish to work.

Type of machine: According to resistance

Strenght equipment can exert resistance through the selection weights from the stack or by loading discs. For resistance machines with a weight stack, included in the price, the weights are easily selected and without the need to do so manually, unlike machines with resistance through loading discs, which are not included in the price and which must be introduced manually to vary the weight.

Type of machine: According to use

The guarantee varies depending on the intensity and frequency of use, and for this reason three types of use are distinguished: domestic, semi-professional and professional. It is important to check what each machine is designed for and to respect this classification in order to ensure that the machine will be able to support the frequency of training it will be used for.

With regard to the maximum load, all the machines have a maximum capacity, so before choosing a model, you should take note of this limit so you know the maximum intensity you can train at.

Load and Maximum weight of the user

In order to be sure that the machine will work to its full potential and that it is being used correctly, it is important to consider the maximum weight it can support. Otherwise, it may not operate at an optimum level.
