Strands are a part of my regular training program and have been for some time, as is the case for many participants on this board. Unfortunately, I've found that in attempting to convince others to give strands/cables a go I run up against the fact that few know much (or anything at all) about them and therefore seem disinclined to give them a shot. Does anyone here know of any prominent athletes or others who would be generally recognizable to many or most people who credit their success or much of it to cables? I was originally sceptical about getting results but quickly became a convert after trying them. I think that many would benefit from giving them a fair trial, but most seem put off because of the lack of "success stories" from recognizable names.
