Can you build muscle with cable machines?
A cable machine, also called a pulley machine, is an incredible tool for building muscle. Not only does it allow you to challenge your body from angles that are difficult to replicate with free weights or traditional machines, but it’s an overwhelmingly safe way to train to failure (or close to it).
What does the cable machine workout?
The seated cable row is a great cable exercise that is very popular. At my gym, the machine is almost in constant use. The movement primarily works the latissimus dorsi, traps, and rhomboids. It also even works the biceps, traps, and rear delts.
