This one should be helpful especially for the currently non-existant or inexperienced gym goer. Ever told yourself, "Alright, I'm doing it! I'm getting a membership and going to the gym!" to get there and not know what machines to use or how to use them. According to, there are only 5 machines you need to use.

Everyone has their daily workout plan and if it works for them, awesome. This looks like something that was put together to eliminate confusion and to keep things simple, while still working out the key body parts.

1.  The rowing machine. Speaking of not being familiar with how to use things, apparently the rower is one of those that a lot of people don't use because they don't know how to use it. This one is good because it uses about 80% of the muscles in your body.

2.  The pull-up machine. This one isn't nearly as scary as it looks. A common misconception is that your pulling your full body weight....not the case. You're actually leaning on a bench with a counterweight that assists you. You might be surprised with the results you get as it's another one of those machines that uses almost all of your upper body muscles

3.  The cable pulley station.  You've seen this one. It's the complicated looking thing you stand under that has cables with handles. I used to not go near this thing but once you hit the interwebs for some instructions on how to use it, you should be good. There's a ton you can do with it.

4.  The preacher curl machine.  This is the one  where you typically sit down and do curls with your arms on those padded things. Dumb bells work too.

5.  The leg press machine.  I like this one because my back sucks...for lack of a better term. I guess some people say this causes back problems. I prefer this one because I feel more at ease and less likely to throw my back out. Ever done that? Sucks for a few days.


And in case you haven't seen this hilarious masterpiece. If you go to the gym regularly, you will probably enjoy this.
