Compound exercises like bench press, squats, rows and lat pull-downs are exercises that recruit multiple muscle groups. These exercises are the best way to build muscle and strength. You simply don't get them on any other machine, except a barbell and a rack (not a machine) Built and continually improved over nearly 20 years, the Multi System allows you to perform these exercises with complete safety. Both the bench press and squat stations have built safety mechanisms that will stop you being trapped under a heavy weight. You can push yourself to the limit while training alone. Or lighten weight, have shorter rests and get cardio benefits and leanness.
Leverage exercises also allow you to perform the exercises with the strictest form. You don't have to stabilise a barbell, and can focus on isolating the target muscle. And the arc of the lever arm replicates a barbell or dumbbell's movement, so it's very similar to a free weight exercise. The best of both worlds - serious body builders love this, but it's also ideal for beginners.
Video's quite long - there's so much you can do. Takes 3.30 to get to squats!

This video shows the squat station. (it's the same mechanism that's on the Multi System)
Check the range of well-designed and robust add-on options at bottom of page. Also note...the main pic shows a Pec Flye Accessory, which is extra-cost - and the last picture shows a Curl Machine Accessory, connected to the bench at left, which is an extra-cost option. There's plenty of biceps action in the base capabilities of the machine, such as drag curls, rows and pull-downs. Plates aren't included, neither is the weight rack (in the main pic), but you'll leave a few on the three stations of the machine.
This a big device; three big boxes. Multi System itself without plates is 200+ kg empty. Freight to long distance or remote locations can be pricey - but sometimes there are surprises. Check the freight at top near the price, or using the Contact Page and we'll see if we can arrange something if you're especially remote. Assembly takes less than three hours, with excellent instructions. There should be someone else around to help hold heavy bits. In Auckland we offer a professional service to do it if necessary.
