    I'm at a stage in the gym where I've maxed out on some of the weight machines. Do you have any ideas on how I can add extra weight to them? I've tried attaching weight plates to the pin but the plates are too thick and I struggle to squeeze the weights through the plastic guard. Any ideas?

    Free weights.
    Cable machine.
    Dumb Bells.

    You could also alter your technique and some of the settings depending what it is to make the exercise harder.
    Slower and more repetitions.
