  • Lower the weight in a calm and slow manner, always with tension in the muscle you are exercising. 
  • The machine isolates the shoulders more than exercises with dumbbell and barbell

  • Do not let the weight plates hit each other in the bottom position, then the muscles will rest 
  • Machines are static and do not fit everyone, change exercise in case of pain
