I'm a Trainer, and This Is How to Use the Cable Machine For a Full-Body Workout
Let's be honest, there's a lot of sh*t in the gym that can be very intimidating, especially when you aren't 100 percent sure how to use the equipment. One piece that is beyond confusing if you've never used it, but extremely beneficial once you understand it, is the cable machine. And I am here to help you figure it out.
There's a plethora of exercises you can do with the cable machine, and to get you comfortable with using it, I created a quick, three-move total-body workout using classic cable machine exercises: triceps pushdown, glute kickback, and the cable crunch.
If you're ready to become a cable machine pro, continue reading.
Before you get started, be sure to do a thorough warm up with some dynamic drills or a five-minute light jog on the treadmill.
- Triceps pushdown: three sets of 15 reps
- Glute kickback: three sets of 15 reps each leg
- Cable crunch: three sets of 10 reps
Don't forget to cool down after your workout.
