    I am trying to figure out what positions I can use for my arms on a leg weight machine.

    sit in an inverted eagle position. Put your hands down on the ground and push oppositely with your arms and legs.

    I live in a smalltown where the closest gym is an hour bus ride away and 110 a month. And the bench was the only weight equipment I could get out here.

    isn't that the same as a normal flat bench then? you can do every possible weight exercise you would be able to at the gym with dumbbells

    But I wanted to use it like a machine due to the fact thatI have trouble staing in the proper posture for the exercise.

    All the more reason for you to NOT use a machine then.
