Shiny, modern machines make the gym look new and professional, but actually the only thing they’re good for is for sitting down while you catch your breath! You see, machines alter the way your body naturally moves and restrict your range of motion. This severely limits your ability to fully activate all of your muscles fibers — that means less fat burning and less muscle definition. Machines can even cause excessive strain on your joints, giving you nagging injuries in the future.
If you want real results, it’s very important to incorporate exercises that allow your body to move naturally with full range of motion so you can really advance your entire physique. Take a look at the Strength Gaining section to learn more about the most effective ways to exercise and make your body explode with muscles!
Performing functional, full-body exercises is essential to getting a balanced body and boosting your metabolism. It really is soooooo important. Combined with various time based intervals, repetitions, and speed, you’ll be training your whole body to burn calories 24/7!
Also, you don’t need a bunch of gym machines and gadgets for any of these exercises. In fact, most gym machines are designed for isolated movements, which severely restrict your natural range of motion (keeping you locked in one position).
