If you’re a beginner to weight training, incorporating pin loaded machines into your workouts is a great option to start building your strength. Not only are the movements on pin loaded weight machines easy to master, but their guided path of resistance will support your muscles and reduce your chance of injury. It’s a safe and effective option if you’re a beginner and will significantly improve your strength over time if you stick with it!
If you’re a complete beginner to weight training – start with a light weight and slowly increase your weight over time. It’s a huge motivator to notice those increases in pin placements as you build strength!
