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 triceps press downs on our Apollo high pulley station can help to improve upper body and arm strength, enhance general pressing strength, and ultimately improve performance of the shoulders and chest muscles as they are often the secondary muscle group for most mass building movements like bench press, push press, push ups, dips, etc. Tricep press downs specifically target your triceps, making it a great targeted exercise.
