This installment of the One Weight Workout focuses on the cable machine. These total-body exercises will help you increase strength, burn calories and reduce your risk of an overuse injury.
The purpose of this workout is to perform the five foundational patterns of movement: squat, lunge, push, pull and rotation, all using resistance from the cable machine to develop strength between all of the different muscle groups. For best results, do this workout three to four times a week, being sure to rest at least one full day between workouts.
If you typically train with free weights but find yourself stuck on a plateau, stepping away from the weights and using cables for a couple of weeks can help you become stronger once you do return to your usual lifting program.
