Well somebody who says "I lift weights" and only does pushups everyday than tells somebody there workout routine, I'm sure there going to be disappointed finding out you only do pushups which is completely not a workout schedule. Weight lifters can be categorized to me as somebody who lift consistently four to five days a week different body parts. I don't think there's any problem with using machines, I actually think machines work very well for working certains aspects of the body such as abs but I think everybody should experience both free weights and machines and whichever one they prefer is personal preference. I prefer free weights because they put a little more pressure on you when you are lifting and I think ultimately makes you stronger than using machines but I have no problem using either one.
