Repeat the exercise for a set of twelve. Repeat for three sets of twelve.

- Bench Press. Set the weight you want to lift and lay prostrate along the bench. Position yourself so that your chest is under the bench press bar. Grip the bar with your hands evenly spaced either side. Lift the weight in even strokes until your arms are straight and bring slowly back until your elbows are in line with your chest. Repeat twelve times to complete a set. Repeat the set three times.
- Leg Extensions. Sit upright on the leg weights bench. Curl your lower leg behind the cushion for the correct lifting position. Lift the weight with your legs by stretching your legs out in front of you slowly. When your legs are straight lower them back to the original position. Repeat the exercise for a set of twelve and repeat the set three times.
- Bicep Curls. In the standing position, use the seated rowing bar at a your desired weight. Lift the rowing bar into position with your arms crooked at the elbow and out in front of you. From this position curl the bar up towards your chest and then back down to its original position. Repeat for a set of twelve. Repeat for three sets.
