I am going to answer a question I get from a lot of my Six Pack Shortcuts members and people who follow me on Youtube.com. “What should I use in the gym? Should I use free weights or should I use machines Mr. Chang?” … First of all, don’t ever call me Mr., because I am too young for that shit! Haha, but I am going to tell you the three major advantages of free weights over machines and why free weights will help you get ripped.
Advantage 1: Free weights help you build muscle faster.
– Here is a good example: when you pick up a piece of furniture… it’s not always balanced immediately, but your body eventually balances it out. Your body has to naturally stabilize it. How does it stabilize it? Your stabilizing muscles kick in when you lift the couch, just like they kick in when you use with free weights.
Free Weights = More Muscle Contractions(to stabilize) = Building More Muscle
You are going to build muscle and get stronger, quicker.
PS. Oh, by the way you also use your ab muscles with free weights, so you will get six pack abs quicker.
Advantage 2: You increase your athleticism with free weights.
– You will be dunking my Lebron in no time! Maybe not, but free weights will get you one step closer to moving and looking like an athlete.
Advantage 3: Free weights are cheap, so you can workout at your convenience at home and train like I do.
– If your life is too crazy or you can’t afford a gym membership, here is your solution.
Now that you know what type of weights will get you in shape quicker, here is my challenge to you.
Challenge: Go get a few sets of dumbbells off craigslist.com or at a yard sale, so you can build muscle in the comfort of your home… Of course you can go to the gym if you have a membership, but now you know to stay away from the machines. Then, I want you to do this workout three times in the next 7 days. Take a day of rest between workouts, so that means you need to get started now!
