IMPORTANT! High And Low Pulley Station Weight Stack Instructions

The APOLLO selectorized weight stack and pulley system has been designed with user safety in mind. In order to select the weight amount you want to use, please follow these instructions.

With one hand lift the clear plastic weight stack shield all the way up and with the other hand pull the pop pin out from its security track and slide it up or down in the track to select the weight amount you want to use.

Once you have selected the weight amount you want, release the pop pin and make sure it is completely seated in the weight stack hole that you’ve picked. Lower the clear plastic weight stack shield all the way down.

This will unlock the weight stack for use. While the weight stack shield is open both the high pulley and low pulley cannot be moved as they are locked.

The single-arm cable chest press, performed on our Apollo Multigym, is an upper body strength exercise that targets the chest, shoulders, and triceps. Performing the exercise with a cable ensures resistance remains on the muscles throughout the entire range of motion. Performing the exercise on each arm separately allows both arms to work equally.
