Stop procrastinating and begin your healthy life today!
are they good for you?
Yeah theyre great especially for beginners. Theres basically no way to fuck up the movements and it lets you push harder because theres no threat of injury
>Theres basically no way to fuck up the movements
oh didn't saw the dude doing crunches on the chest press. actually everyone I see on this thing besides some beefcakes are doing it. Sometimes i think about telling them, but they prob get all pissy because im DYEL
Say that about leg press.
shan't be clicking that
He might actually deserve that.
I get nervous every time I see anyone use these machines. Too much can go wrong.
>don't lock your knees
>don't throw 5 plates on
>don't do shitty quarter reps with hands on knees and think, "yeah that was a great set time to go up in weight."
Anyone hogging that many plates just to do quarter reps deserves this.
> locking out
> pushing with his hands directly agianst his kneecaps to push the weights
> more weight than he can handle
Swedefag we know you don't lift
this is the dyel filter i lock out all the time but not with over 1000 pounds
You get what you fucking deserve gay
There is nothing wrong with using machines
No, they'll eventually replace all jobs and humans will become obsolete. Read Uncle Ted
better than free weights
Yes, but free weights are better
They're a godsend if you're recovering from a surgery or an injury
I never feel anything in my chest with that machine. Need the iso lateral one where the handles come together at the end for a huge squeeze.
Think you're referring to Pec Deck Flys (pic related).Incline chest press feels better since doing the barbell bench doesn't work for me since I only feel it in my triceps.
Cable pec flies are even better. Only way I feel pecs with free weights is with dumbells while holding the concentric motion. Frankly my bench is shit but you need to get to two plates to feel anything in the chest from a barbell bench.
No I'm not I'm talking about the iso lateral wide chest press.
Good for isolation exercise, terrible compound replacements.
If the only thing you care about is hypertrophy they're amazing, all the swole guys over the age of 40 at my gym exclusively use cables and machines
some of them
Hate shoulder machine it feels so weird
this was filmed on blaha's birthday, btw
Blaha aint got no time for unproductive shenaningans like celebrating his birthday
They’re only good if they’re nano
Great for upper back. I like cables for triceps. Maybe some quad and hamstring work as well if you don't want to squat or deadlift.
No compound movement with free weights will get you the same feeling as a calf raise or hamstring curl. RDLs are alright but hard to overload with.
calf raises yes
for knee flexion you can do nordic curls
Do you want to target a specific muscle or muscle group? Then yes. Do you want to train larger chains of muscles as a system? Then no, there are better ways to do that.
