Free weights, not machines
 
Free weight: Means the exercise by dumbbell and barbell
Machines: Such as the abdomen, leg , shoulder machines and other Click here for clarification

Basic exercises in your own bodybuilding training should contain exercises of free weight, and not machines.

Machines are useful, but for part of the muscle is not all of the muscle

And can thus exercise by machine after basic exercise of free weight


xample: A shoulder exercise machine works the front of the shoulder muscle only, but the seated barbell shoulder press exercise working on shoulder muscle as a whole

I do not know one got the amount of muscle by use the machines only.

The main reason for this is the lack of stability in exercise the muscle, and this is due to the machines operate within the limits of certain directions of the movement and thus machines help support the load in these trends and become part of the muscle is supported by you and the other part is supported by the machine and therefore have the machine fails in exercise all parts of the muscle

But free weight exercises with dumbbells and barbell working on a strong pressure on the muscle because of the style of loading, leading to exercise all parts of the muscle, which helps you build muscle well and very fast due to excess pressure on the muscle just as we talked in the previous topic that The use of heavy weights helps build muscle fast

Good points here. I usually go for the free weights first and hit the machines when my form goes downhill due to muscle fatigue.

I'm a big believer in using free weight, compound exercises for building mass and strength. Exercises like deadlift, squat, and dips are the way to go. Machines can have their place, but I never use them that much.

Machine can work all the muscle , but i guess the big diference between machine and free weight, is the stability.

The concentration for the stability when using free weight, force you to control all of your muscles, and gives you tension. This will make your muscle to work under more tension, rather than using the machine.
I guess this is the big diference, so we can easily say that free weight is better for endurence of the muscle, and i can force it to grow a bit bigger than using a machine

Hi,
I just started to lift weights. I noticed my left pec is somewhat smaller than my right pec. Should i use a heavier dumbbell on the left or should i use a machine? Thanks.

Just lift with a balanced load with free weights. Focus on having perfectly symmetrical form and slowly increase the weight. It will even out.

I think free weight are good rather the use of machines because machines gives us a support and so we do less power and our muscles pull up less and size of muscles become small and tight.
