New love for Hammer Strength

I've been in college 3 years and had this badass gym at my disposal all 3 years.

Anyways, we've had all the Hammer Strength stuff the whole time, I just never really used it. This blast I decided to REALLY switch things up and use all the proven winners that I've read about here. Rack chins and Hammer strength incline press and shoulder press are in there.

Talk about nice. I love these things, and since I lift alone they are even more valuable to me.

Just wasting space here guys. If you haven't given them a shot yet, go for it!

Most of the hammer strength equipment I've used I love too. They're great machines, especially when training to failure.

When in Houston I'm in NW side, like cypress/spring area, 1960 and 249ish.

I go to school at UNT in Denton so I'm about a block off campus.

my dumbass college got rid of the hammer strength machines for some reason. I had to completely change my whole routine. I'm done soon, so after I';m out I'll find a good gym with it again, I do miss it.

At my new gym they have both lines of hammer strength, some you can use plates others are just weighted like machines.

My gym is too small/cheap to buy Hammer equipment. I might get a family membership at the Y though.

i agree that most of the hammer machines are killer - they have a leg press machine that screwed my back up for a week because of the pressure it put on my lower back by thrusting me into the back pad. aside from that, i have no complaints on anything else - customizable seat positions, ease of movements, and high quality construction - i love them

and i believe in InHuman's avatar he's using the hammer incline press machine and i think he might have his adapters on there for a few extra 45's - definitely a testament to their quality when someone can load more weight than its built for and it still holds up.

I've trained on base with a gf of mines and most of their machines are Hammer Strength with the pins. Pretty neat stuff. But I like the plate loaded ones better.

Wow, too many to say, the most funny one was some short kid, jacked the seat up so high, his back was arched. so when he was doing the motion instead of pressing away from the body he was pushing down. and range of motion was about 2". hard to explain just funny none the less

I like Hammer Strength too, altough we don't have any at my univeristy gym, three weeks untilI can use them again. The only problem I find is on some of their chest machines I have a lot of difficulty fitting into them properly, particularily my arms as they are fairly long I think.

Precisely. At my gym, people either :

-put on too much weight and arch their back so much when they press that they actually STAND UP out of the seat

-put on too much weight and just slam it back on the negative. some guy actaully knocked one of the 45lb plates off the side from slamming it so hard
