" Whether I can increase weight, using simulators "? Yes. Supporters of free weight approve, that the weight grows only from free weights. It is not absolutely true. Your muscles react to intensive loading which can proceed from the most various sources. To muscles it is indifferent you use free weights or simulators. They simply react to loading. Well load a muscle, and she will answer you with the growth. Certainly, it is not necessary to refuse use of free weights absolutely. Simply remember, that the free weight is not a unique way to weight.
But not all simulators, as they say, are created equal. For example, for study of muscles of shoulders and a breast, is better to use "Hammer" as this simulator is designed in view of natural trajectories of movement of the person.
