The MAG attachment is an overlooked gem in the world of cable attachments.  If you train in a commercial gym, I'm sure you've sifted through various doohickeys that claim this and that and you're probably not even sure how it attaches to the cable in the first place.  The MAG attachment admittedly looks strange.  You'd probably wonder what boat it was stolen off of and if a boat anchor has any business being used in a gym anyway.


However, looks and confusion aside, the MAG attachment is a true work of art.  In the game of weight training, tweaks make the difference between painful and painless.  One tweak might enable a better contraction, where another tweak might disable a contraction.  The MAG attachment uses anatomy and physiology to fix so many issues associated with standard rowing handles.  From our product description:

"MAG, with its unique palm support, keeps the wrist in a partial state of flexion at all times. In this position the line of force will pass through the proximal phalanx, the most efficient and less fatiguing grip position. As the workout progresses, the wrist maintains its original position enabling the trainee to achieve an optimal workout. MAG is much more comfortable than a standard round handle as it disperses the force of the exercise throughout the entire hand, not just the fingers. This takes the focus off gripping the bar allowing the user to focus on the targeted muscle group without prematurely ending their set because of grip failure. Lateral epicondylitis, or tennis elbow, is often associated with excessive gripping with the wrist in a state of extension. This ailment is common with many trainees, as they have a tendency to over-grip or squeeze the handles too hard with the wrist in extension. Because MAG keeps the wrist in a partial state of flexion and the focus is off of the grip, it has been shown to help alleviate this condition when doing pulling movements. Also, MAG has shown to be indispensable in Physical Therapy Centers for the rehabilitation of certain injuries. Easy to understand and use, MAG appeals to the novice and the highly trained athlete. With seven unique designs that work your back at different angles, you will never be bored again doing your back work. MAG is much more ergonomically correct than other handles enabling you to keep proper form throughout your workout. Made of high quality steel and coated with a super tough, baked on washable rubber, MAG will not chip and scratch your expensive machines like conventional handles. "
