I also purchased a Sierra set . It's tremendous and the materials and design are
first rate . Best movements are :

Front Chest Pulls
Pulldowns from ilets lagged into the ceiling .
Cross cable side laterals (loops on ea. foot)
Triceps extensions and kickbacks
Arm wrestling against the hook + bands (bands anchored
by a power rack sword )
Triceps rope extensions with Sierra bands ...
This is just the start with this great piece of gear ...

Really cool, simple,but brilliant, a bit like me when a kid, will suggest to the extended family they can buy me some next time i deserve a reward, for example soon it will be my/our 60th wedding anniversary, its the least i deserve.( the wife can share them) Thanks for showing me. David Gentle just a thought, is there a safety factor on the hooks to prevent the strands flying off? or do they close by pressure? must go,its time for my cocoa.

Hi David, have to say i like all my cable sets but for all round efficiency the hook is hard to beat. No problem about safety, as soon as pressure goes on them thar cables ain't goin nowhere. One great advantage of the quick change feature is how easy it is to do drop sets, do the set and slip one cable off quick and smooth, then carry on, beautiful.Construction is top notch too plus great customer service.Bruce is like us he loves training and you can see he made these with improving training for himself. Another feature is that the are accommodating for those with longer arms,yet the loops can be doubled for those with shorter arms. They can also take other makes of loops/bands which overall makes them a winner. Hey Bruce don't forget the case of beer mate, you have my address :lol:
Regards,Peter.

I went bandless last night
and used the Sierra hooks for lateral raises with a pair of "crappy cast"
big box grip plates (25#).The openings near the lip fit the hook handle like
a glove.

Oh, yes. The case of beer.

Thank you for the great testimonials, guys.

Now, if I might be allowed to toot my horn, here. The Hook is essentially an entire gym. The addition of the anchor, which can be secured all around a closed door - over the top, down the sides, underneath, as well as being attached to a pipe or bar - enables a number of exercises that can only be performed on machines. The Isometric/Suspension Trainer, with its evenly spaced, numbered loops, into which the hooks of the handles slip, allows for a wide variety of isometric and bodyweight exercises with preset "stations". The handles are, in fact, the fastest loading set of dumbbells you'll ever wrap your hands around. Changing resistance is virtually instantaneous.

And, yes, I did initially make it for myself, and used it for five years before starting my company. The Hook is now owned by thousands in forty countries around the world.

*pant* *pant*

Thank you.
