The Samson Cable Set will work
muscles from angles that weights can't. The same muscles will be called
into play, but different fibers will be used.
Using the Samson Cable Set
helps to shape the muscles to improve your appearance while increasing
your strength. Almost any one-arm dumbbell movement will have a cable

The Samson Cable Set (also
known as chest expanders) is made with stainless steel, quick change
handles, and rubber strands. A human muscle has more potential power
the further it contracts. Rubber cables provide more resistance the
further they are extended. If you want more natural-looking muscular
shape, a different type of strength from that developed with weights
(we trained a world arm-wrestling champion in the 200-lb. class with
one of these sets), and the ability to "pump" your arm over an inch in
less than 20 minutes, try the Samson Cable Set.
The Samson Cable Set loads by
unscrewing the handles at the top. Changing
cables is instantaneous. Other sets take way too long to change. Our
set will hold over two dozen cables.
addition to the regular strands, we have an intermediate strength
strand. This strand has approximately 60% of the resistance of the
regular strands. If adding a regular strand is too hard for you to do,
you can add the intermediate strand and work up to adding the regular
strand in place of the intermediate strand. See the Cable Resistance Chart to see how the combinations can be used.
We also have a "Baby Cable
Strand" which is half the resistance of an intermediate strand and can
be used to push past a sticking point in your cable use (not shown on
the cable chart).
The Samson Cable Set comes with
5 cable strands (regular or intermediate)
using a cable set, maintain a neutral spine at all times. To find your
neutral spine lie on the floor facing the ceiling. Neutral is right in
the middle of an arched position (spine off the floor with chest and
hips remaining on the floor) and a flattened position (spine touching
the floor at all points from chest to hips.)
Warm up before doing cable
exercises. The easiest way to warm up is to do some walking.
Stretch after your cable
workout while your muscles are still warmed up.
Do 8-15 reps of each exercise
for 1-3 sets. The last set should feel "somewhat hard" to "very hard."
Maintain a regular breathing
pattern with each rep. Exhale during exertion, inhale on the release.
Do your cable exercises a
minimum of twice a week, maximum three times a week. Don't do two days
in a row.
common sense. If you are in pain when doing a certain movement, don't
do that movement. Learn to tell the difference between pain, muscle
exhaustion, and muscle soreness. If you are on any type of medication,
consult your physician before attempting any exercise regimen.
