    Questions on weight machines

    Question: when using weight machines, is it better to set the weights so it takes all you've got to get through your sets with safe form, or set them a bit lower so you can zip through pretty quickly with only a medium burn at the end?


    Basic routine: circuit of machines at the Y, 3 sets, 10 reps/set
    Goals: weight loss, strength, tone, improved cycling
    Cardio: stationary and road bike


    Note: at the heavier level, I experience muscle soreness and so only go every other day. At the lighter level, I can do it every day. I've not done it enough to tell a difference on meeting my goals, that's why I'm gathering opinions

    if you are a powerlifter then you want to move the weight any way possible when competing

    but with normal everyday people, especially females you want to break down the muscle with proper form always

    Rule of thumb, if it's easy to get through the set you arent doing enough and you're getting nothing from it

    You want it to be difficult but not sacrifice form and proper movement.

    As everyone said, you need it to be difficult but still not sacrificing form. If you are just zipping through, it is likely not enough weight to be effective.
