    I work predominantly with Free Weights.
    But I also use some Cable Machines, and Hammer Strength.

    If you work-out alone as I do most of the time.
    Hammer Strength will allow you to Overload your Presses without fear of getting hurt.
    So I have found the Combination of Equipment to be Optimum.

    And Cable Machines have the Benefit of Working Angles that you just can't work with Free Weights.
    Plus the Constant Tension is very beneficial for Hypertrophy.

    Re: Training apparatus & Free weight

    I think that it just depends on my mood and how involved I want to be. I think that the more that I go on though, the more that free weights seem to appeal to me, and I am not really sure if I know the reason.

    Re: Training apparatus & Free weight

    I only go to the gym for a visit to my friend who works there and even if I am offered free training sessions, I decline because of my age. But with the guys and gals that are in the gym, free weight may be the name of the game but I see those using training apparatus are enjoying it more. My friend in the gym said that free weight is tedious and painful to the muscles while the training apparatus is designed for a gradual training.

    Re: Training apparatus & Free weight

    Honestly it completely depends on which muscle group were talking about. I think some respond better to free weight and some are easier to hit with machines and cables. And a lot of it comed down to each individual persons skeletal and muscular makeup. You have to find which mechanical positions are best for you

    Re: Training apparatus & Free weight

    I currently use free weights but I am ok with machines too. Free weights aree better in my opinion due to more muscles having to stablize. Just my 2 cents..

    I agree free weights is top for muscle building, but cable weights have a lot of good lifting movements in them also...I know they both have a place in my Training... Just wished my gym had higher than 140# dumbbells...

    Re: Training apparatus & Free weight

    I find free weights more versatile than the machines, because they allow for more range of motion and variation as well, and nothing beats a set of dumbbells because you can work out at home or take them to the park as well, which is nice.

    Re: Training apparatus & Free weight

    I actually make use of whatever I have available for my training sessions at any point in time. It's very good to train with some weight losing apperatus because they can be very helpful in making you achieve your goals very quickly unlike when you go in manual.
