How to use: Adjust seat and handle a height at which your most extended leg has a slight knee bend. Slide your feet into the pedal slots and rotate them with your feet. To adjust the difficulty, rotate the knob to add or remove resistance to the pedals. Alternatively, use the up and down arrows to adjust resistance to your desired pace and difficulty. Pro-tip: tighten the knob quickly to slow down the bike.


Rowing Machine

Muscles Worked: Traps, Lats, Biceps, Core, Glutes, Hamstrings, Quads, Cardiovascular system

How to use: Adjust the foot platforms to the appropriate size and strap your feet in. The strap should lay just past the toes on the foot. Grip the handle. Start the movement with your knees bent to your chest and arms extended. Extend your legs, then push your upper body away from the machine and finally pull the handle towards your chest. Reverse the movement by extending your arms, slightly leaning forward and bending your knees. Repeat. To adjust the difficulty, move the resistance bar on the side of the machine. 10 is maximum resistance and 1 is minimum resistance. Pro-tip: Pull the handle toward your chest by leading with your elbows for the best form.
