Weight Training Tool: Cable Pulley Machine

Today I thought we would head back inside for an intense workout with the weight training tool, the cable pulley machine. This workout provides strength training and core training.  You can put your client through a full body workout in a short period. The intensity of the workout can be adjusted by increasing or decreasing the weight for each set.

Cable Training is a great way of adding momentum to your workout. Adjustable cable columns allow for specific paths of momentum. Cables using a pull from below will enhance the use of gravity. Additionally, using a pull from above will reduce the effect of gravity. When your client is attached to the cable can also change the effect of the ground reaction. Cable workouts provide a full body workout with exercises for upper and lower body. Cable exercises provide a safe and controlled weight lifting workout. Cable training is a great part of personal and small group training. Your clients can really work their core with these strength training exercises.
