All I am saying is that I've done both free and smith and the later recently has caused less stress. I did not say anything about one being better than the other so I do not understand how I giving a bad example for the general population. If one machine or free weight exercise works for you over another, then great, that was my point. Just FYI, just got a text from Cuts a couple days ago and he did free weight squats. Can we move on to something better because we will go in circles with this topic no matter what.
I say you guys email Jay personally and see what he thinks. Overall, free weights create a better look, but come at a price sometimes. Ok, enough of me talking about this, I've gotta fix my Wife's computer...gotta put my IT degree to work!
I think jay might "ruin" bodybuilding the way Coleman did. If he continues to come in the way he did this year, There is no chance in hell anyone is going to beat him UNLESS they put on enough size to be comparable. The "size game" ended when ronnie retired but jay is bringing it back. I love the freaks but guys like Phil and Kai will end up ruining their physiques if they blow up quickly to have comparable size to jay.
Dont get me wrong, Coleman is the shit. IMO Ronnie at the 2001 ASC is the greatest physique in history but im glad he did the impossible when he was the unbeatable beast in 2003. But look at all the other bodybuilders that went to shit trying to compete with the big boys.
Jay is absolutely freakishly wide that the only people who dont look small next to him are the tall guys.. And we saw the dissapointment wolf has been turning out to be.
