The Powertec Shape System is a fully functional cable exercise system designed to meet the recent demands of health clubs across the nation for functional cable exercises. In recent years many fitness enthusiasts have learned the benefits of incorporating cable exercises into their routines. Many enthusiasts have opted to uses cable systems predominantly over dumbbells and free weights.
Maximizing the Powertec System is done by using the versatility of the system to complete a series of exercises for all parts of the body. By performing a “circuit” training routine one can get the maximum results from the Powertec Shape System. A “circuit” routine is a series of exercises, done one at a time, covering all muscle groups. The benefit of using the Powertec system for this circuit is that cables incorporate secondary muscles as well as the major muscle groups. secondary muscles assist with moving weight by maintaining the correct form, posture and balance of the weight. For instance, when performing a squat the quadriceps and hamstrings do a majority of the lifting and lowering while a group of muscles called the adductors (inner and outer) will help you keep your balance and posture while doing the lift. Cables naturally incorporate these movements and activate these muscles where traditional weight machines do not.
