How have machines contributed to the backwards movement of the Iron Game?
0 vote(s)What the machines did was teach weight trainees that poundage no longer mattered. In fact, the machine manufacturers encouraged such thinking by labeling the plates in their weight stacks not in pounds but by letters of the alphabet. Instead of using 100 pounds for 10 reps in the press, you would use “plate J.” Once you start thinking in terms of “plate J” or “plate K” you have disassociated yourself completely from the idea of WEIGHT training – which is precisely what happened on some machines.
