How to record progress

About the workouts
Before starting this workout plan, we recommend practising the suggested exercises to get a feel for them and to determine which weights you should begin with. As a beginner, you should only use the weights that you feel comfortable lifting. If you’re unsure which weights are right for you, sample 1-2 sets with 8-12 repetitions beforehand. If you can easily lift two sets at 12 reps, go heavier. In the case that the weights are slightly challenging for you, stick to them.
Once you've got into the swing of using your multi gym, you can aim to complete 3-4 workouts per week. If you have time, 30-45 minutes of cardio per day will also be beneficial.
Before you begin your multi gym workout, it’s important to warm up. This should involve dynamic stretching and around ten minutes of cardio. This will prepare your body for your workout and prevent injuries.
Now that you're prepared, let's get started!
6 Week Beginners Multi Gym Workout
Weeks 1, 2 & 3
In your first three weeks of using your multi gym, complete three workouts. This will help you get into a routine without overdoing it and risking injuries. It’s very important to rest between workouts to help with recovery.
Weeks 4, 5 & 6
Now that you've got into an exercise routine and have worked your target muscle groups, it’s time to increase your number of workout days to four per week. Don’t forget, you still need to rest in between.
Once your 6 week plan is complete, you can continue exercising on the multi gym four days per week, with a goal of increasing the weights.
