With the Marcy Power Tower, you can develop an exercise routine based on maximizing your time and getting the results that you want in the most efficient manner possible. So, let’s dive in and start with these solid, fundamental exercises.

  1. Push-Ups

Using the handles at the push-up station, place your body parallel to them. This is the start position. Perform as many push-ups as you can until your muscles begin to lightly tremble and your muscles feel a slight burning sensation. This limit indicates your maximum for the time being, so take note of the number and gradually increase the number of push-ups you can do each following week. Four full sets are recommended for optimal results, taking up to 90 seconds to rest between each set.  Just remember, exhale on your way down, and inhale on your way up.

Push-ups are great for strengthening your shoulder, chest, triceps, and abdominal muscles.

  1. Dips

Dips are another upper body exercise that targets your entire upper body. Gripping the side-mounted handles, align your upper arms with the handles, with your knees bend and lower legs interlaced. This is the starting position. Rising slowly up and down at a 90 degree angle, perform as many dips as you can for up to 12 reps, taking note of the exact number. Slowly lower yourself so you upper and lower arms are at a 90 degree angle. Perform three to four sets, with 90 second rest in between. Gradually increase the level of challenge during each successive workout routine. Again, exhale on your way down, and inhale on your way up.

  1. Wide grip pull ups

Next, give your back and biceps a good workout with some pull-ups. Grab the overhead pull-up bar and let the rest of your body hang from the tower. From this starting position, lift yourself upwards toward and slightly past the bars, exhaling while you contract your arm and back muscles. Gradually lower yourself back to the starting position while taking a deep breath, then explode back upwards. Perform as many repetitions as you can, perform three to four sets for optimal results. You can also increase the challenge level by wearing ankle weights or using a weight belt for added resistance.

  1. Reverse grip pull ups

This bicep blasting exercise is very similar to the standard pull-up, but targets your biceps more. Reverse grip pull-ups are excellent for developing your forearms as well as your grip strength. Perform a minimum of eight chin-ups, and take note of your maximum number. Four sets are recommended for maximum results. Challenge yourself even more by using alternating grips.  Just as we had done for the Wide Grip pull up, be sure to control your breathing as you perform the exercise.  

  1. Vertical Knee Raises

To really burn those calories and work both your abdominal and oblique muscles, perform a minimum of eight vertical knee raises, until you feel a slight burn in your core region. Begin with your legs down, then slowly raise your bent knees towards your chest while tightening your abdominal muscles. Slowly return to the starting position in a controlled motion. As an alternative, you can add in a twisting motion as you bring your knees up in order to focus on your oblique muscles. Challenge yourself even more by keeping your legs straight as you raise them, or, wear ankle weights to add resistance to this exercise.

Circuit Training

For an intense, total body and core workout, circuit training can be the best way to push your body to the limit, in order to get those exciting gains and results that everyone desires. Here is a recommended exercise routine you can do with your very own Marcy Power Tower:

  1. 8-12 push-ups.
  2. Rest for 90 seconds.
  3. 8-12 dips.
  4. Rest for 90 seconds.
  5. 8-12 wide grip pull ups
  6. Rest for 90 seconds.
  7. 8-12 reverse grip pull ups/chin-ups
  8. Rest for 90 seconds.
  9. 8-12 vertical knee raises
  10. Rest for up to minutes, depending on your endurance level, and repeat the circuit over again from the beginning.
