Most fitness centers offer a wide variety of strength training mechanisms. These can include free weights, stationary machines, and cable machines. Cable machines are designed to offer multiple exercise options in one machine. Cable machines fit a wide range of body sizes with little to no set up, this allows for more exercises in a shorter period of time. The result can be a more efficient training session! Some other benefits of cable machines include: recruitment of smaller stabilizer muscles as well as the main muscle groups, limbs can move independently, and complex movement patterns are easier to perform. To see more information on the benefits of cable machines visit our Trainer Blog at Getfit.uhhg.org. Good luck and happy training!

There are many different approaches to strength training. You can ask ten trainers and get ten different answers. None of them would be wrong, just different. However, a safe and sure-fire way to get results is to track your progress, time your rest periods, and progressively overload your muscles.
