Cables are a perfect alternative for free weights. The Body-Solid Pro Club Line SDC2000G/1 Dual Cable Column with Dual 160-Pound Weight Stacks packs twice the punch and delivers twice as much exercise variety. They’re right in the middle between those and things like the traditional bench press or calf raise machines. Furthermore, cables allow for a more natural range of motion and provide lots of proprioception that machines can’t.
By employing the different types of handles, manipulating body leverage, and working against gravity with cable motion, astounding workouts can be had in a compact area. These days it’s about efficiency. Why use ten different machines, or do ten different free weight exercises when they can all be done using one cable machine in one area?
With a simple pop-pin adjustment, the vertically adjustable pulleys can be set for over 100 exercises at a level that is comfortable for any size user. When it comes to stability and durability, Body-Solid can’t be beaten with heavy gauge 2″ x 4″ mainframe construction and aircraft quality cables and pulleys.

This list isn’t all-inclusive but gives you an idea of what people can do.
Chest: Because these all need to be done standing, many other stabilization muscles come into play making them more intense and metabolically demanding. Thus, it goes for most of the others as well. Furthermore, there are chest presses, cable flys, low to high underhand arm raises, incline press, and decline press to name a few.
Back: From crossovers and Lat Pulldowns to reverse deltoid flys and any number of rows this cable machine makes it possible to sculpt the entirety of the back musculature.
Legs: Whether you’re doing squat to rows, adductor/abductor exercises, or active lunges it’s easy to get the lower body into the mix and tap into the most prominent muscle groups for extra challenge and calorie burning.
Core: You can do upper body cross-overs, cable assisted crunches, or side-dips for the obliques. But, in reality, all the exercises that done standing and most others are going to tap into the core, or at least integrate it. Furthermore, that’s one of the beautiful things about working with cables, are they include heavy demands on the transverse abdominus or the abdominal wall.
Arms: Both the biceps and triceps can be either isolated or used as a part of the overall exercise like the core. They’re typically going to be a part of the show regardless, but it’s nice to do some bicep curls or tricep extensions once in a while to feel the burn.
