Do the mini-max method and weightlifting machine work?


Answer by  Christian9247 (5042)

The mini-max method is not based on weight lifting; it's based on aerobic exercises. Now the weightlifting machines they don't work either cause they use free floating weights.

Not really. If you read the materials by the trainers who popularized the mini-max method, they believe weightlifting machines are almost useless. The mini-max is based around free weights and aerobic exercises, not machines.


Answer by  lonelywolf (2117)

Not really. The mini-max method was designed to be used with minimal equipment and free weights as well as bodyweight exercises. Using machines to follow the program defeats the purpose; machines actually stabilize the movements too much, meaning you use fewer muscles when exercising on machines.

They work, just not as well as using free weights. If you really want to define, strengthen, and develop your muscles in the best way, use free weights.
