Machines vs free weight


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about Machines vs free weight within the Women's Fitness (Female Bodybuilding and Training) category.

Excerpt: I was wondering what everyone's opinions are on Free Weights vs. Machines. My partner does not attend the gym with me, and they do not offer personal training. (The gym is in a very small town). I was wondering if it is safer to use the machines, but also have heard backlash and pros/cons of both. I was just hoping to get a little more feedback!

    Machines can limit the range of motion as compared to free weights. It is good to use both if you can, however doing just machines is still better than not doing resistance training.

    It's been debated ever since the first machine was put in a gym.

    Yeah i would go with free weights all day. Just learn lifting techniques with light weight and work your way up.

    Free weights are superior, but I believe in implementing both. Machines make good finishers
