Workout Tip: Maintain Your Equipment- Cables
Your cables on any equipment should be tight and not have any slack when you begin your routine. Over time they may loosen, and this will delay the full resistance from kicking in immediately. If you don't feel the full weight you selected once you start, it is tight for adjustments to eliminate the slack. Follow the cable from start to finish all the way to the weights. A big reason for slack is that pulleys become loose- adjust with wrench. Run your fingers along the cable to feel for thinning or bulging areas. Visually inspect the cables for fraying or cracking. Check that the jam nut on the selector rod top bolt is tight.
