You may have noticed that recently I added new weight stack adaptor plates for the duel functional trainer, at the gym. For members using the trainer (which may be known to some as the dual cable machine), you probably noticed that the weight increases by 13 lbs for each plate added. Adding just a 5lb'er on there is a great way to slowly build up from one plate to the next, without overdoing it.
Some of my favorite exercises at the gym involve the dual functional trainer. To name a few of the exercises, I love doing tricep pull-downs, rows, lateral wood chops, and "stirring the pot" (to see what the exercise is click - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nRTjVJLCRqU). Adding a 5lb adaptor plate helps challenge me in a new way, and see faster results!
If you are not familiar with the dual functional trainer, and want to be shown some exercises please let me know and I will meet you at the gym and get you set up. We're here to help you get the most out of your gym membership so let us know how we can help! 970.765.7009
