WHAT WE RECOMMEND & INCLUDED/ADDITIONAL ACCESSORIES
If you plan on purchasing the Powerline Cable Crossover, we recommend various accessories to make your new cable crossover gym feel at home. First, it’s highly recommended you purchase a set of floor mats to keep your floors and ground safe. Even if you don’t plan on dropping weights onto the ground, it’s still a good idea to have some protective mats under the Cable Crossover itself so you don’t scratch or mark the ground. You’ll also want some kind of plates to go with the machine, if you don’t have a set already. Otherwise, you won’t be getting any workouts in with this new piece of equipment.
As mentioned, the PCC090X is perfectly usable with both standard and olympic weight sets, so you can choose to go with a lower quality weight set, if necessary. We also recommend checking out our post on the top 10 home gym attachments because of the versatility allowed by this machine, giving you the ability to workout with a wide number of tools. This will definitely enhance and improve your time with the Cable Crossover machine.
While the PowerLine Cable Crossover does come with a couple its own accessories, you may want to make room for more depending on your goals when strength training. The accessories that come with the machine only include two cable handles and one ankle strap. Having some additional accessories will allow you to do so many more kinds of workouts with this machine. You also have the option to purchase chin-up handles, weight plates, and collars from Powerline separately so that’s another (and maybe more preferred) option as well.
