My back has forced me to move from free weights to the weight machine. And, over the past several months, I've noticed no change.
So, yesterday morning, I spoke to one of the trainers. I was doing what I had been told, but was holding steady, something that hadn't happened when I used free weights. (And yes, Angela, I really was trying to get more upper body strength for kayaking.)
The trainer and I decided I needed to bump up the weights and do more sets with fewer reps twice a week and then on the third day, cut back to what I had been doing.
Not sure if it will help, but I must admit, the first two days of the enhanced weights and more sets has kept my muscles mildly aching into the next day.
