Full body workout is fine for like 1 -2 months, then you should do splits and you can also do the splits on machines, no problem.

I personally never liked full body routines but most people I have talked to think that it's a good way to start.
2019-11-14 22:23
if you are doing full body dont do it on machines
2019-11-14 22:23
mashines are pretty good nowadays. i don't see problemo for him.

if you are doing full body you shouldn't do isolation, only compound
2019-11-14 22:28
No stabilizing needed on machines which in my opinion is a bad thing

the whole point of starting out with full body workouts is so you can focus on compound movements. working out with machines completely negates that

If he's a beginner, machines may be better because he won't get injured. I know so many people who tried to deadlift day 1 and fucked up their backs.

form is the problem in that case, not being unfit. you should never start out with max weights if you don't have prior experience and proper form

I doing the same reps and sets on all what I need exercises

I think free weights are better, it will train more muscles. For example squats will train abs, back, legs all at once, so u get a lot of work done with 1 exercise. In my experience I fatigue faster with full-body training, because when u start to add some weight you spent the energy fast, at least in my experience. I prefer splits after a few months of full-body but u need more time if u gonna do splits.

is there even a difference from smith mashine squats? literally all the same movements.
2019-11-14 22:28
Hmm the weight seems "lighter" on those, like the bar doesn't feel 20KG at all, at least in my gym. And also you work your core from stabilizing the bar- At least that's what I've been told.
2019-11-14 22:30
you are right, squats at a rack and squats at a smith machine are very different exercises, because of the core work.
2019-11-14 22:44
Yes, anything that stabilizes, also, yes like the other guy said the weights are sometimes hard to compare consistenly with smith machines

Please don't ask hltv for these details

Only ugly people work out

on machines, do cycles rather than doing the same exercise three sets in a row. So do like 5 or 6 different machine sets, then take a rest, then start at machine 1 again, so you at least hit the stabilzers with fatigue and multiple angles. you could even just forgo the machines and do cycles of body weight exercises, like 10 squat jumps, 10 lunges each leg alternating, 10 step ups each leg alternating, 20 pushups, 10 squat jumps, rest. set a goal time, and complete the cycle in lets say 90 seconds at the end of the workout, spend a long time stretching, then go eat immediately

do not do machines only workout free weights (barbell + dumbells) are the most effective machines should be used for isolation excercises only, with main focus on compound movements

Honestly, as someone who did a volume heavy version of 5x5 3x week for 6 months, before going onto 2x upper/lower week and then playing around with 2x Push/Pull/Legs week, Upper/Lower splits are the best use of your time AND energy. Doing an actual useful fullbody strength and/or hypertrophy workout is going to take you at least 2 hours, with warming up for big exercises like squat, dead, ohp, bench, barbell rows, pull ups, small accessories. In upper/lower you might just do Bench - OHP+Chest Supported Row - Incline DB+Lat Pulldown, arm/shoulder isolation exercises. It will take you the same amount of time as 3 full body workouts, but you will be able to do more total volume and have to spend less time warming up. The total quality of the volume might be slightly lower, but overall its a much better way to spend your time and energy, while still training frequently enough to actually improve.
