The new gym I started using has this equipment and it′s great. But the one question I had the dials on the nautilus one equipment I have only goes up to 125, whereas on their website it clearly says the loads on all nautilus one equipment is 250.

If anyone has used this equipment before and knows more about it or something in the settings of the dial i′m not using properly, please I′d appreciate if you could let me know.

The dial can be dialled up to 125 in 5 pound increments, and above it there′s a little function to select 2.5 pounds.

Any clues?

It′s probably 125 per side. Adding up to 250. I refuse to use home gyms as none offer the resistance that they claim. I can go into any store and "stack" these machines and end up up with only a mild warmup.

Direct resistance is the go.

I tore a hamstring a few months ago and had to go to a sports physio. He had really posh super expensive gear. I had a go on the high low cable and did a one arm tricep push down with 150lb stack. LOL

The more pulleys wheels and cables the more mechanical the leverage and winch factor.

Not all machines are our friends. Not even the brands we trust.

Unless the resistance feels heavy and moves quick without any drag…. beware.
