    By now we all know one of the keys to gaining strength: USE FREE WEIGHTS!


    But Nautilus/Cable machines cant be avoided totally, which isnt a bad thing....My question is which exercises do you fellas use cables (non-free weight) for???Here are some of mine:


    Leg Extension
    Reverse Leg Curl
    Lat Pulldown
    Tricep Pushdown
    Various Smith Machine exercises (Close Grip Bench, Shoulder Press)

    *I always switch up the exercises each week, but these appear very frequently in my workout.

    Seems to me that the balance issue applies mostly to pressing excercises, such as squats, bench, mil, etc. They all require the use of underused stablizer muscles, wherein lies the benefit.

    However, when you're doing back, which mostly involves pulling exercises, rows, pulldowns etc..., there's not really much to balance. Pulling is pulling.

    So, for me, I'll use the machines for back stuff, maybe curls and leg extensions, but not really for anything else.
