MY EXPERIENCE WITH FREE WEIGHTS AND MACHINES


ONE ARM CABLE CURLS ARE GREAT FOR BRINGING OUT THE DEEP STRIATIONS, CARVING DEEP SEPARATIONS BETWEEN THE DIFFERENT MUSCLE GROUPS - 
I DO HIGH REPS 4 x 15 TO 20 - 2 WEEKS OUT FROM A COMPETITION

ONE OF MY FAVORITE ARM BUILDERS - NOTHING DOES IT BETTER THAN THE SCOTT BENCH CURL 5 X 10. IF YOU WANT THEM THICK AND MUSCULAR, THIS ONE IS "KING". PAUSE AT THE BOTTOM AND MAKE SURE TO STRETCH, KEEPING THE TENSION ON THE BICEP - 
THEN  WATCH THEM GROW !

MACHINES HAVE BEEN A PART OF WEIGHT TRAINING FOR YEARS SINCE THE EARLY "1920s". MR EUGENE SANDOW WAS SELLING WALL PULLEYS TO GYMS PRACTICALLY TO EVERY YMCA IN THE COUNTRY. 


I’M A HUGE CABLE / PULLEY FAN

THERE ARE EXERCISE MOVEMENTS THAT CAN BE DONE ON CERTAIN MACHINES THAT CANNOT BE DUPLICATED WITH BARBELLS AND DUMBBELLS.

MACHINES LIKE 
  • LEG EXTENSIONS
  • NECK MACHINES
  • WRIST ROLLERS, 
  • LAT PULL DOWN MACHINES AND 
  • ROWING MACHINES 
HAVE BEEN AROUND FOR GENERATIONS. THEY HAVE STOOD THE TEST OF TIME BECAUSE THEY WORK AND THEY WORK AS WELL AS OR BETTER THAN FREE WEIGHTS IN SOME CIRCUMSTANCES.

I BASICALLY USED MACHINES AND THE "HIT SYSTEM" DURING MY FINAL MASTER OLYMPIA APPEARANCE IN 2001. MY CONDITION WAS GREAT BUT IT SEEMED IN MY EYES, AFTER VIEWING MY PHYSIQUE AND PHOTOS FOR OVER 27 YEARS, I HAD LOST SOME OF THAT MUSCLE FULLNESS AND SHAPELY ROUNDNESS THROUGHOUT MY OVER-ALL PHYSIQUE. 
MACHINES ADVANTAGE OVER FREE WEIGHTS
IS A MATTER OF EXPERIENCE

REGARDLESS THE ARGUMENT, FREE WEIGHTS HAVE ADVANTAGES OVER MACHINES 

I AM LOYAL TO FREE WEIGHTS 

  • BARBELLS, 
  • DUMBBELLS, 
  • PULLEY AND CABLES APPARATUS. 

THEY HAVE ALWAYS BEEN THE STABILIZERS OF MY PHYSIQUE AND STILL ARE AS I APPROACH MY 70’S. 

FREE WEIGHTS 
BUILD QUALITY MUSCLE 
THAT LAST! 
AND LAST! 
AND LAST!


PEACE, ROBBY

Damn those arms are looking good Robby.
One of my son's friends is interested in body-building and was reading about RR in an encyclopedia of body-building. He was enthused to find out that I actually had a chance to work out with the Black Prince during the Master Class experience. I showed him some current pictures of you in your 60s and he couldn't believe how good you still looked.
