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 muscles do cable machines work?
The standing cable chest press is a great exercise to work your pecs, shoulders, triceps and even abs. Think of it as the cable press version of a standard dumbbell press. Carrying out this exercise is simple. The first thing to do is to set the two adjustable pulleys to about chest height.
