Fitness strength training multigyms are more effective than resistance band training for several reasons. A good multigym has several advantages over resistance band training. These include:
Established resistance, no “cheating”
With resistance bands, you are working against your own strength and resistance. The less you resist, in other words, the less effective your workouts are. This means, you can “cheat” yourself by not resisting enough and therefore not working out hard enough to build real muscle mass.
With fitness strength training multigyms, your workouts are established for you and you simply set the weight you want to work at. It doesn’t matter how much or how little you want to push yourself; you’re simply set to work at the established weight you’ve set, so that there is no “cheating.” Therefore, with a multigym, you have to provide the resistance to the weight you’ve set. This can help you see results much more quickly.
No setup required
In addition, with resistance bands, you work with your own weight and it can be cumbersome at some points to have to assume different positions with the resistance bands to achieve the exercises you want. With your multigym, everything you need is right there, ready to go. You simply set the weight you want to work with, and do the workout. And with so many different exercises available on the multigym, you can work every major muscle group in your body, for the best results possible.
Your multigym is right there, ready to go, whenever you’re ready. Simply go through the exercise program you have established, finish up in about 20-30 minutes, and you’re done. The more convenient a workout is to do, the more likely you are to stay with it. Although, once you are seriously working toward fitness strength training your workouts will usually be about one hour in length.
Whole body exercise
With resistance band training, it’s very, very difficult to make sure you get whole body exercise, so that every muscle group in your body is challenged. With a multigym, though, you get every exercise you need for whole body fitness.
Measure progress with an established routine
What your multigym right there, you can establish an exercise routine for yourself three days a week to make sure you stay in the best shape possible. With resistance band training, it’s much more difficult to measure your progress, since you’re only working against yourself. A multigym gives you the capability to measure real progress as you go along because your weight resistance increases. This, in turn, will motivate you to greater success.
A multigym is going to automatically put you in the correct position for each of the exercises you do. By contrast, with resistance band training, it’s very easy to get into improper form, which means that you can injure yourself much more easily. Therefore, an established gym setup is better for you; it helps you learn and maintain proper form right from the beginning. You’ll get better results, too.
Less chance of injury means better consistency
Because a multigym is going to give you less chance of injury than resistance band training will, you’re much more likely to stick with training. If you injure yourself, you’ll have to halt your workouts – at least for a while. This can be a death knell when it comes to remaining consistent with your workouts. And of course, even if you do pick back up after your injuries have healed, you’ll have lost some ground in your workouts; better not to get injured in the first place, then.
