My gym just got in some new weight machines. They use compressed air for resistance instead of plates. You can adjust the weight by pressing either the plus button on your right handle or the minus button on your left handle.
They have machines for everything from benchpress to leg press.
The only thing i don’t like is that the weight with these don’t match the weight with the older plate machines. If you bench 125 on a the old machine you might be able to do 100 on the new one. but for some machines (leg press) you might can do more.
the inconsistency b/t the machines is prolly why i will stick with the older plate machines.
i know, i know, i should use free weights but i’m trying to just get back in the mode of working out instead of going hard.
These machines could have been around for a while but these are the first i’ve ever seen.
