The Finnlo Autark 2500 features handles to grip on the main arms when seated in the main section, which are used for chest press exercises to help work the pectoral muscles. This is also possible through the pec dec exercise which can be performed from the same position, but with your forearm resting vertically against the padded section on each of the arms, and contracting your chest muscles as you bring your arms across to meet in front of you.
These two exercises will help firstly to develop overall thickness and size in the chest, and secondly to focus on the inner chest which can be the hardest area to develop. If you want to focus more on the outer edge of the chest whilst at the same time working the central chest area then you can also hold the outside of the arms just above the handles you use for chest pressing and perform the same pec dec exercise but with your arms much more extended.
These arms on the Finnlo Autark 2500 can then be folded out of the way so that you can perform back exercises using the cable pulldown and wide grip handle which can be attached and rests in the hooks at the end of the top support bar. With the pec dec arms folded away you can then perform pulldowns to work your back muscles, either pulling the bar down to your front when facing the machine, or behind the neck to work more of the shoulders and traps when facing away from the machine.
To one side of the Finnlo Autark 2500 there is another pulley section nearer the ground which is perfect for any low pulling movements such as seated cable rows or standing one handed rows to further develop back thickness after the pulldowns.
Due to this pulley being positioned so low to the ground, this makes it perfect for any movement requiring a single cable to be moved from down by your leg to up by your chest, such as side lateral raises to work the lateral head of your shoulders, front raises to work the anterior head of your shoulder, or any bicep exercise such as single cable curls.
The single high pulley towards the back of the machine is great for any exercise that requires a movement from near your chest to down near your thigh, such as tricep pushdowns either one handed or two handed.
Aside from these upper body exercises, you can also work your lower body and especially your quadricep muscles by using the leg press machine. Although this has a relatively small footplate to position your feet on, you can still use this to work your calves more if you position your toes closer to the bottom of the footplate.
The FINNLO Autark 2500 also includes a handle on each side to help stop you sliding around in the chair when performing the exercise.
Although there isn’t a way of performing hamstring curls with both legs at the same time like some multi gyms, you can still isolate the hamstring thanks to the smaller padded roller on the leg extension by standing up and facing the machine. Then just press your calf up against the padded roller and contract your hamstring which should move the weight up. If not then you can simply adjust the resistance until you feel a good contraction in just your hamstring.
Abs can also be worked through the same motion as the overhead tricep extension. You can either perform this movement seated and curling forward with the rope attachment behind your neck, or by lying on the ground and using the lower pulley with the rope extension to perform weighted sit-ups.
In contrast to many other home multigym’s, the lower cable pull on the FINNLO Autark 2500 is situated on the side of the machine. This has the benefit of space saving and a better ‘pull’ due to the shorter cable pull.
