Free weights Vs Resistance Machines; which is better and what is the difference anyway?



Before we dive into the pro and cons of resistance machines and free weights, let us take a quick look at the real difference between them:

The dumbbells and barbells are often referred to as the free weights. They require a lot of energy and strength to be lifted since they provide no help or support.



Resistance machines are often created and structured to improve  an  individual who trains ability to lift up weights at a time when their joints requires more resistance.
Resistance machines are the huge and very complex-like structures that can normally be found at gym centers.

Resistance machines often improves the structure and strength of a group of muscles at a time whereas free weights improves the strength of almost every muscle whenever they are lifted.

Resistance machines vs free weights
The question asked by many is: resistance machines or free weights, which is better?

Well, in my view or opinion, I would say they are all good depending on how you use them and your personality.
The free weights often build muscles and at the same time improves energy and endurance.

Resistance machines on the other hand often builds up muscles more than it improve energy and endurance.



Interest counts a lot when it comes to issues like this.
You should check out the one you enjoy most for training and roll with it.
You can blend the two if you want to. You can maybe workout with resistance machines today and the next day, you go with free weights.


Individuals who are somehow new to training should begin with resistance machines until their body cells and muscles are well positioned and equipped for much more pressure before they start lifting free weights.

All in all, resistance machines and free weights are all good!
