Weight machines can be a good choice, especially if you're just getting started with strength training. In fact, many beginners start out using machines because:
- They're supportive. Most machines provide support, which is great for people who need help when learning new exercises. It can also be good for people rehabbing injuries or those who want to lift heavy weights without a spotter.
- They're easy to use. Because most machines work on a fixed path and have instructions and diagrams posted, it's easier to use good form.
- They save time. It usually doesn't take as much time to change weights on machines as it would for many free weight exercises.
- They're less intimidating. Trying to figure out what to do with a bunch of dumbbells can seem impossible. With machines, you know exactly what muscles you're working and how to do the exercise correctly.
