I was chatting with a memeber at my gym yesterday and was saying how the dumbells really bother my hands. He said go back to the Cybex room and use those machines because they are way better than free weights. I went back and he showed me what machines were to replace the excercises that i was doing out on the floor. First off it did not feel the same and i was able to do more weight on the Cybex then on free weights. I guess growing up a male with a old bench press in the basement as a kid i just think free weight are better. What is the opinion on here about it?
