    Hammer machine






    Just wondering how many of you guys use this machine. I believe it's called the hammer.
    I get a good stretch out of this machine.

    Thanks. Do you use them? If so what exercise do you replace them with?

    I would if my gym had them. they are a great way to supplement your free weight program. Usually On a heavy bench day I would do either a hammer low row or a hammer pulldown. Then, my second upper body day of the week I woudl do some supplpemental chest work on the hammer iso incline press along with some speed work for the bench or overhead pressing.

    the leg machines are sweet too. the unilateral leg press is nice and the gravity squat (think that is what it was called) is pretty sweet too.

    We have alot of them in my gym. I love them. For Chest I use the Incline Press and the Decline. I do regular BB Bench first.
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain...

    The low rows are great, the good thing about hammers is that you can use them unilaterally.

    We've got three HS machines. One is seated incline press and the other two are for rows (one low, one high). They're excellent machines, much better than all the other Cybex machines that we have.

    All of our equipment is Hammer Strength and Life Fitness.

    I use the low row and behind the neck press machines, but that is about it.

    We have the unilateral leg press, but I don't like it, if I do leg press I only do 1-legged press anyway.
    If sense were common, everyone would have it.
