Free weights vs. machines
As you know, I have had a few injuries the last couple of months and I find it more practical to use machines. Do you use mostly barbells/dumbells or machines?
My preference has always been machines as I feel they allow for more accuracy. Of course, they only come with so much weight attatched and can quickly be maxed out hehe.
The best option would be a combination. The freeweights not only allow for more weight when needed, but it uses the stabalizer muscles surrounding the target muscles. Also, dumbbells get my preference over barbells for the same stabalizing/balancing reasons. But these too have weight maxes usually.
free weights is the best, it works all the stabilizer muscles too and you get a better range of motion and stretch for a fuller muscle build, but its also good to change things up too with machines if your trying to hit a particular muscle only
BODYBUILDING IS NOT JUST A SPORT BUT A WAY OF LIFE. A COMBINATION OF THE MIND, BODY, AND SOUL. IN A QUEST OF PERFECTION WITHIN ONE'S SELF.
