Standing Chest Press with Cable Pulley

  1. Stand at a double cable machine, with pulleys positioned at chest or slightly below the shoulders.
  2. Grab the handles and pull them carefully forward until they are in front of the shoulder.
  3. Lunge forward slightly, keeping back straight and abdominals very tight.
  4. Hold this position, and press handles together as in a bench press, not a flye.

Tip: Pulleys can be positioned either higher or lower, and will work the upper pecs and lower pecs respectively. You may need to change your stance to accommodate this change.

Variation: Exercise can be done unilaterally as well- very challenging.
