But in reality, giving a maximum range of motion and putting a sufficient tension on muscle help to build muscle optimally. You can either use free weight or machine weight to apply tension on muscle. What’s most important is to create optimal tension on target muscle that cause the muscle hypertrophy (muscle growth).
Keep in mind two important factors while selecting your exercise, Does your selected exercise gives a maximum range of motion? Range of Motion Range of motion is the measurement of muscle movement.
