I’ve been workin’ out for a long, long time. Since I was 14 – to be exact.
And I feel like I’ve tried everything.
Dumbbells. Barbells. Machines. Push ups. Sit ups. Olympic lifts.
Anything you can think of – I probably done it.
I also follow a lot of fitness magazines and stuff like that.
And what I’ve noticed that a lot of fitness guys always have rules.
You can’t do this. You can’t do that.
Well, I’ve found that some rules I gotta break, cause of my physical disability.
The biggest rule I’ve broken for the last three years has been no machines.
This the biggest bro fitness thing ever.
Only do barbells.
Only do dumbbells.
You’re not usin’ your “stabilizer muscles.”
I say – forget that – use machines. A lot.
And got a few of benefits from usin’ it –
- For one thing, I’m way more muscular. For some reason, I look buffer after usin’ the Hammer Strength Chest Press.
- I feel safer. There’s a few times where I was ego liftin’ with dumbbells. And had a couple of scares. Machines take care of that.
- Way more isolation on the weak side of your body. If you have a physical disability on a certain part of your body – chances are it’s really weak. And by usin’ isolation exercises like Hammer Strength Pulldown machines, you get to strengthen your weak side of body – fairly easily.
I swear – usin’ machines has changed the game for me.
Before, my workouts used to be centered around dumbbells and barbells – which are cool.
But if you have physical disability, you’re at an unfair disadvantage.
And by dissin’ the fitness bros, and usin’ machines to build your strength and muscularity – it will level the playin the field between you and other people.
So, try out some machines.
… Also follow me on Twitter because machines are dope.
