Weight Machines Build Functional Strength. Seriously.

As a trainer, I've tended to play up the importance of free weights as the "best" method of building muscle and functional strength. As it turns out, weight machines fill in some gaps that free weights can't quite reach.

Bonus: there's some great rehab tips here for people with knee joint pain. Give it a read. I'm here to answer your questions. Trainers who avoid using machines, and gym owners who scrap them altogether, are doing a disservice to their clients.

[11/14/17]   No time to workout during the work day? Read this.

Your biggest obstacle when working at a desk job is making time to get up and move during the day. I understand this more than ever, now that I work a desk job at a local gym. Simple fitness goals during the workday like 90 second workout breaks make a big difference. Try this one tomorrow:

Midway through your morning and afternoon, get up and complete 15 air squats, then 10 push-ups. Split this up into two sets of 8/5 and 7/5 if needed. This little activity will loosen your hips, work your glutes, and activate your chest--all muscles that get stiff from not being used at work. Do this tomorrow, then come back and tell me how you felt afterward.


When it's your first time a the gym and you don't understand the machines. • r/funny

[06/14/17]   Gym Dom summer tip:

Going on vacation this summer? Stay active while you're away. Keep weight gain at bay through lots of walking or even bodyweight exercises while out of town. The continued effort will keep that weight gain at bay, allowing you to still enjoy yourself when you get home, too.
