I got one for my last birthday. It's my favorite machine too.

Agreed, machine pullovers really hit the lats while taking the arms out of it.  They're a good first exercise to get warmed up and going.  
I usually like to finish up with them. I especially like to on heavy back days. My favorite back routine is doing deads, barbell rows, t-bar rows, and then finish up raping my back by pyramiding four sets (to failure) on the pullover machine with a drop set after the fourth. As good as it gets.

Don't know if you could class it as a machine, as it's also pretty non-mechanical but these things were the best for side delt raises - only machine (apart from the rampant rabbit) that has had me screaming in pain: Kind of like this one but much older and more basic



Damn, that looks good... Never used one  Embarrassed

kinda like how it is in this clip, with his biological twin appearing out of nowhere to push his training efforts well beyond failure Grin

There's a very similar biceps Nautilus machine that is overhead.

So why are the machines in modern gyms complete garbage compared to gym equipment from the 70's and 80's?

Huh

People are just bigger pussies?

i think his back wouldve been the same no matter what he tried

Actually his back wasnt that great in his earlier years... and after losing a show against a guy who had a better back than him he went back to the drawing board and did things a lot differently there after... he has said he considers the pullover machine 'priceless' in the quest for a great back.... its kind of ridiculous more gyms don't have pullover machines, the biggest muscle in the upper body and you cant train it directly in most gyms lol.......   Kai greene also abuses a nautilus pullover machine afaik and look at his lats.

I think Dorian gave a big credit for his back development to these machines.

Dorian used the plate loaded version.

Lat pulldown
i agree with you most versatile piece out  there. pulldowns various grips, cable rows. tri pressdowns, bi  curls standing laying across bench. serratus ab pulls. and more.

Hammer Strength Side Lateral machine is awesome!

Seated Calf Raise machines are great too.

Pullover Machines have faded out in so many gyms..such a shame.

Correct. Same concept was what I was getting at. Its hard enough to find a gym with a pullover machine, let alone a plate loaded one.
