IM2000 Two Day Split Workout

The IM2000 is an extremely powerful and versatile piece of workout equipment. Here is an alternating workout regimen that really takes advantage of the capabilities of this machine and works every part of your body. Nearly all the exercises can be performed on the IM2000 Self Spotting Home Gym, but having some dumbbells will help. If you follow this routine, you can do it 3 or 4 days a week, alternating workouts of course. Be sure to give yourself at least 3 days of rest before performing the same exercises again if you train with good intensity. Use your best judgment to select the appropriate weights and challenge yourself a bit more as you get stronger. This is an intermediate-level workout plan and only a suggested routine as there are almost unlimited options with the Ironmaster gym equipment. Stay tuned for more sample workout routines.
