"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for

MUCH of that "something."

Yes, I think the HAMMER STRENGTH pullover is a good piece. The resistance curve is good, and obviously it's very smooth. You still get a good degree of range of motion, even without the pre-stretch. I'm referring to the regular Pullover here. I didn't care for the Iso-Lateral version.

Hammer Strength took out the pre-stretch because the owners at that time had also been the owners of the Nautilus Midwest franchise, and they had seen how many times Nautilus had been sued by people who had injured their shoulder(s) using it. Yeah, incorrectly I'm sure, but still Nautilus went to court. It's hard to make machines idiot-proof.

WE have the Hammer pullover - bought it in 2000 (I don't know if the current 'life fitness' is different). We had extra cross bars welded on which has improved it considerably. There's still sufficient 'stretch' IMO. I've used the nautilus (iso) pullover which felt like it was trying to rip my arms out of the sockets, in comparison.

I honestly think it is not a good pullover machine. There is one at the gym where I train.

I never use it as a pullover, I only use it as an overhead triceps extension.

It is a phenomenal overhead triceps extension machine in my honest opinion.

I used a nautilus pullover for quite some time, moved gym where I?d hadn?t used one for about a year, joined another with Hammer equipment and the first two things I noticed was an inability to stretch enough to get into position I had to pry the cross bar down to enable positive positive.

The other was the strength curve, very tough at contraction.

After a protracted period on this machine my strength and ROM improved dramatically and quickly.

15 years on I now own a nautilus super pullover
Also used a Medx pullover all have the pros and cons but at the end of the day the use of ?proper exercise ? is prominent.

I love my Nautilus
But having all three in a gym setting would be optimal for trainees at different levels.

Having said all that I reckon the Medx pullover would get the most work.
Where as the nautilus would be used by seasoned experienced trainees
