Free Weights Versus Machines

*Disclaimer - Results may vary based on a variety of factors. 

I still train almost exclusively with free weights. Machines are safer, but they also do a lot of the work for you. In contrast, free weights force you to develop control and balance, which helps you establish a stronger base to build upon.*

For the vast majority of exercises and goals, free-weights usually offer the most variety as well as total body stimulation because many muscles other than the prime movers (muscles responsible for moving the load) are stimulated as stabilizers.*


Machines on the other hand, with their ability to isolate better, can be useful for structural or bodybuilding purposes when they are carefully planned in the workout which is usually to place them after all free-weight exercises.*
