Cable Standing Chest Press

Instructions

Preparation

Stand between two shoulder height pulleys, facing away from cable columns. Grasp cable stirrups from each side. Position stirrups to sides of chest with elbows high out to sides. Position forearms horizontally and parallel with hands elbow width. Step forward in lunging posture (one foot in front and other foot behind). Lean and step forward with one foot in front, bending forward leg.

Execution

Push stirrups forward until arms are straight and parallel to one another. Return stirrups to original position until slight stretch is felt in chest or shoulders. Repeat.

Comments

Stirrup should follow slight arch pattern as hands travel closer together toward extension. Cable pulleys should be relatively close together, narrower than width of arms extended out to sides (but not too close), closer than what is typically found on standard cable cross over setup.
