    Yeah I was thinking more sessions at lighter weight obviously won't build mass but will start conditioning the muscles for this type of movement while avoiding injury. Plus machines protect your lift to an extent as they are only needed to be controlled in one plane. That's just my thoughts, I tried doing some reading but everyone and everything say something different.

    More sessions at any weight won’t build strength if it’s not progressing start light slowly add weight you’ll build strength
    , every reply in this thread is right, you’ve got to find what’s right for you, looks like your on the right track.

    Muscles have no idea where the resistance is coming from, whether it’s a machine, dumbbell or barbell it can either build strength or cause injury some can’t press a barbell over head but the right machine or dumbbell can make the difference work it out, experiment and have patience

    Why do you think lighter weight wonít build mass?
    Thatís a misconception.

    If i can just add a bit to this...

    Light weight can build musle, sure. But...its not as good as heavier weight at building muscle.

    Now, its not quite as black and white as that of course...20 reps vs 1 rep for example.

    Volume matters. But also effort/intensity matters also. As well as intra session fatigue.

    3x20 reps using say your 22 rep max weight oesnt really do much more than 3x10-12 using your 13-14 rep max.

    Why? Fatigue. You dont really start working on that 20 rep set until like rep 15. Lets be honest. Why bother doing all those reps when you get that useful volume and fatigue at rep 5 or 6?

    But, i guess there is a risk vs reward variable to account for also...using a super light weight is much safer for an older trainee. But thats more pf a factor when you compare say 5rm and 12rm. Rather than 12 and 22.

    Fuark...im half pissed with a mate watching NBA...

    But there is a point on that mumbo jumbo.

    People tend to want to be held by the hand and walked through things not taking charge.
    weight lifting is the opposite of this.
    it’s not a sport.
    its not meant to be fun.

    For once I think I agree with you.
    BBing, lifting, gym ratting or whatever you wanna call it...............is a kunce.
    Takes the piss, always sore, natural motivation levels drop as time passes, take 6 months off and you look like you havenít seen the inside a gym in your life before.
    its a kunce of a thing, but I couldnít imagine walking around daily rolling a stock rig, fuk that, Iím way too pretentious for that.

    If fun is your motivation to workout good for you, itís not my motivation.

    my motivator is the feeling I receive after and the byproducts of weight training.

    i actually feel dread, and a little nervous, during the workout I actually donít know how I feel, itís a feeling like no other.
    this is what I love, all this stuff allows me to have fun you troglodyte
