All time favorite bicep curl machine. Anyone use this before? Hits the spot pretty good IMO.

never seen one of them before. but i like Hammer Strength's Iso Lateral stuff

My gym has their Leg Press machine. it separates each leg and instead of a sled, its 2 swings. keeps your ankles at 90* the whole time so you can go real deep. still prefer squats tho.

the gym has abit of hammer strength. alot of paramount stuff too. in all honesty i dont really care about much of it tho. a cable and a pully or 2 and a stack of weights is all i really need for anything i really need a 'machine' for

The only machine I use right now is for seated calf raises. Apparently you should do both seated and standing calf raises for proper development...

But it's pretty much just a lever and a seat, so not sure if it counts

i like to do standing calf raises toes on a platform, in the smith machine holding the bar like at the top of a deadlift.


i was just about to list the few machines i use, and it turns out i use more than i thought. haha.

Right now I am doing one-legged standing calf raises, holding a DB in the other hand. I just go up to the incline bench and toe up on one of the stands, and hold onto the back of the bench for balance.

I don't think I've seen a platform at my gym I can use a barbell with unfortunately. There's the usual 2x4 to elevate your heels during squats, but that's not high enough for calf raises I think

its good to incorporate barbell cheat curls in your bicep routine.. Arnold recommends it himself. I do it in most workouts but sometimes switch it up. cheating helps fatigue your biceps more than if you weren't to cheat. but of course its dangerous if your new to it

Mmm really eh? I find machines are great for Isolating the direct muscle group intended. You realize that even with bicep curl machines there is an actual form you still have to use. I still see idiots on bicep curl machines using slight leverage with their shoulder busting out more weight than they can actually lift.

IMO I think some machines are great to be incorporated into your work outs.

Best alternate squat invented. Bulgarian split squats kill more than regular squats for me.

Speaking of this, saw 3 dudes that obviously didnt know what they were doing yesterday using the bicep machine. The guy loads up like 3 or 4 plates and he's basically using his entire body to curl...

I couldnt even....shake my head it was just so....wrong

Woke up this morning, had my scoop of 1MR (empty stomach) ready to tear the shit out of the gym....Didn't go so well, after 4 sets of deadlifts, and some cable rows i was feeling so done. Did like 3 sets of lat pulldowns then just gave up. I'm contemplating going back in a few hours and finishing off the rest of my workout, or should i just forget about it and move on with my day?
