The Dual Adjustable Pulley Machine
The dual adjustable pulley machine is essentially a resistance machine that consists of two independent weight stacks controlled by pin loading. But here’s the real advantage: you can adjust the weight for each side of the machine and create a level of instability and free movement that most machines don’t allow. So, you get the safety of a machine combined with the benefits of free weights.
What About the Benefits of DAP?
One of the biggest benefits of a DAP machine is the sheer number of exercises you can perform — some manufacturers list 225 exercises! If you don’t have the budget for a number of different resistance machines, this equipment more than compensates. It doesn’t require a huge amount of floor space, so it's a great choice for a home gym where space is at a premium, such as a garden or garage gym.
The dual cable machine can be used for a wide range of workouts, including upper body workouts like chest presses and standing row. The DAP machine is also useful for squats, lunges, bicep curls, crunches, and abdominal curls. You really can get a full body workout with just one machine.
What to look for when buying a double cable machine
When buying a dual adjustable pulley, look for solid construction, multiple position pulleys, and built in chin up bars. Some models also come with rubber feet that can help protect home floors.
If you're looking for more flexibility with your workouts, some dual cable pulley machines also offer small increment weights which allow for finite resistance adjustment. Be sure to check out the attachments included in your purchase, too, as some include short and long strap handles, long and short bars, and an ankle strap. Some models will also provide an instructional poster and CD/DVD to help you along the way.
