Free Weights VS Machines for Men Over 40 (science-based)

What’s the best way to build muscle: free weights or machines? Well, it depends. Ultimately, this comes down to your goals, training experience and past injuries.

For example, if you’re over 40 and you’ve been training for a while, you may find that doing heavy sets of deadlifts or back squats simply isn’t worth the risk, and there are better options that suit your goals without stressing your joints.

In this video, we go over the pros and cons of both free weights and machines, and take a look at the current evidence to determine which one is best for muscle growth.
