    All you need are free weights and pulleys. I see people with great physiques who have never used machines. They're a crutch or something that should be used by advanced lifters. I started training bench in June. I could max out my pec Dec for sets of six but my bench was 165lbs. Weak and small despite "strength on the pec Dec. Over reliance on machines creates muscular imbalances or watery toned down physiques.

    Yes not all machines are created equal meaning some machines are better than others.
    The draw back is machine work takes out stability and balance out of the work and functions only in the set path of the machine which may not be ideal for some.
    The good is they provide resistance in what ever plain of motion your working and you can focus on the working area more safely ideal for beginners and elderly.
    Mixed in with free weight work machines can be a good part of weight training and as mentioned easier to adjust the weight for different types of protocols.
    I personally have two machines i like right now in my training.
    The plate loaded chest supported row and a counter balance/weight assisted pull up dip machine.
    I can work the weaker areas say like the top half of my pull ups with a squeeze and hold.
    With dips i can do them last in training to get the benefits without failure right away with just a few reps.
    I can focus also with the chest pushing rather than an all out grind.
    So yes depending how you use them machines can be very beneficial .
