Using Resistance Machines

By WLR's Personal Trainer, Nicola Glanville PTI REP Level 3

Although I favour training my clients with Free Weights, Resistance Machines do have their uses.

If you are new to Resistance Training, the movements and techniques involved can be challenging. Many beginners are intimidated by Free Weight exercises as they are relatively technical and require good postural awareness. Resistance machines on the other hand are easier to master as many of them operate in a single plane of motion i.e. forwards/backwards, up/down. Also your position and posture are often supported by the structure of the machine. Resistance Machines can therefore be used as an introduction to Resistance Training.
