Although many people use cables for working on the the leg muscles (Quadriceps, Gastrocnemius and Hamstrings) and arm muscles (Trapezius musclesDeltoids and Biceps). Many also neglect how good cables can be for working on your core. Working out with cables adds that resistance that you wouldn't usually have when doing a standard workout. It is imperative to have that resistance as it is so much better for your muscle growth. When using cables in your workout, the resistance will promote the breaking down of muscle fibres in your body- which, over time, will be more effective then doing crunches or squats without the use of cables and will speed up the process of getting that perfect core that you desire.

  • Always warm up before hand and also make sure you have good form during your cable exercise to avoid any possible injury.
