Introduction and objective Resistance training (RT) shows beneficial effects on the physical health and fitness, i.e. muscle growth, changes in body composition, increase in strength. In RT programs for novice participants, machines are favored. The purpose of this RCT is to compare progression in strength, girth measures and functional movement quality, when following a RT program using free weights only, machines only, or free weights after machines. More specifically, the effects on the upper back region will be focused on. Methods Forty-two previously untrained healthy young adult men participated in a strength training program from which 30 participants completed the full 10 weeks. The subjects were randomly classified in 3 training groups; Free Weight Group (FWG) (n=12), Machine Group (MG) (n=10) or Combined group (n=8). A pre-, mid- and post-test were conducted to evaluate strength (1RM), girth measures and movement quality (Functional Movement Screen). The program consisted of 2 sessions per week, using 3 sets per exercise at a 10 RM intensity. Results The results showed a significant increase in strength, girth measures and functional movement quality related to the upper back region, except for rotatory stability in the Combined group. No significant difference was observed between the 3 training groups. Conclusion An equal increase in strength, girth measures and functional movement quality was noted using free weights only, machines only, or free weights after machines. Because of the general benefits using machines, the same training effects and a positive transfer from machines to free weights, starting a training program with machines switching to free weights can be recommended.
