Cable machines are the most versatile pieces of equipment in your gym, and the cable crossover machine takes the cake!

With the cable crossover machine, you have four pulleys:

  • 1 upper right
  • 1 lower right
  • 1 upper left
  • 1 lower left

You can do all kinds of epic exercises with this machine, including, but not limited to:

  • Cable curls — Give your biceps more definition by forcing them to work extra hard. The tension of the cable keeps the muscle contracted on both concentric and eccentric phases.
  • Cable push-downs – Focus on your triceps.
  • Cable wrist curls – This is great for your forearms, and is easier on those with weak wrists.
  • Cable chest flys – For definition for your chest, it doesn’t get better than this! Some even recommend it in place of the bench press!

There are so many exercises you can do with the cable crossover machine, and all you need is the various attachments. You can even get a lower body workout with the ankle strap.

The beauty of the cable machine lies in the fact that there is continuous tension, so the movements never get easier like they do with free weights !
