The objective research has been in for quite some time: the physiological responses to using the right machines not only improves strength, but also improves function! Due to the myths perpetuated by a vast, biased segment of the industry, few trainers have learned how to strategically integrate body-weight exercises and machines, or the basics on customizing the set-up and use of various machines for their clients. If you work with a broad range of clients, machines can be the best tool at very specific points in progression and for specific goals. You won't believe how many variations can be created on a single machine when you understand exercise mechanics! (This is Part 1 in a two-part series. This session is recommended, but not required as a prerequisite to session 172.)
