Even the flotsam should be able to spell exercise!

Cable cross over is almost useless. Why? Well, when you use heavy weights it becomes dangerous. It is as useless as using a rope for triceps pressdowns.

Go to 3:35, maybe this flotsam by the name Phil Heath needs to take your advice. Cable Cross overs are useless to him---for his pec development

Let me tell you that is a dangerous piece of equipment to use when you go heavy. I doubt many of the champs use it for size. That isn't the way Ray Mentzer recommended you hold your arms. This is a very unstable exercise and quite dangerous to control when heavy weights are used.

  Grin the cable crossover isnt a "mass builder". how heavy can you go? its impossible to use much more than yoru bodyweight, or else youd be pulling yourself up into the air, not pulling the weights up. how would it be dangerous? i think one would need to have some extremely horrible form to make it a dangerous exercise. the cable crossover is a good isolation exercise.

The "yes/no" machine (as I like to call it). Only females should ever be allowed to use in the first place.

Who am I talking to here, a novice? I am telling you that once you get heavy you can't control the movement as it will want to go in other directions. That is when you can injure yourself.

The Smith machine that is angled at about 10 degrees is an excellent machine as long as it runs on linear bearings and has a straight bar. The angle will feel good for bench press, inclines and even squats.

Cable crossover station... Hate hate hate it million little guys 140 lbs some not even hit pubertyas yet everybody wants t do cable crossovers max holding up the cable station doing cable crossovers.... And old fat guys Not realising that is an advanced isolation movement which means you need to first have pecs.... So when a serious trainer like myself wants to do pressdowns it's full of guys lining up to do cable crossovers

i dont agree with this.. i believe that any exercise helps to build the muscle to a certain extent.. i dont buy this "isolation" thing!!.. same as when some ppl say when you do high reps it helps to define you muscles!!..

I actually feel that the yes machine is the most underrated piece of gym equipment.  Great machine for hip/glute activvation.  Maybe not the best for bodybuilding, but for strength training in sports it is a great machine.

The thing I hate is when ppl use equipment that they dnt need to use...

barbell curls in the squat rack...just pick the damn barbell up off the floor, why stop other ppl from squatting.

just lately ive seen a lot of guys do sit ups and other ab variations on the bench press...NOT a bench in the free weight area, but they stop others from benching.  Selfish.
