Whether you decide to use free weights or weight machines there are a few points to consider. Lets take a look at free weights.
This is probably the method of training for muscle strength and mass which gives you the most bang for your buck.
Barbells, dumbbells, kettle bells, and functional cable machines have one thing is common.
They all force the individual to stabilize an object and give that person free range of motion to move that object.

The great thing about this is that these specific exercises can be customized to fit a sport, job or any everyday activity that you may perform.
Free weights are also a really good option for maintaining muscle mass while trying to loss body fat through metabolic training.

Lets take a closer look at obtaining ripped abs. You can not get ripped abs without weight loss, more specifically body fat loss.
You can jump in blindly, cutting calories, exercising, restricting certain foods and so on, without any clear outcome in mind.
This method usually ends up in disappointment.
