Cable Standing Incline Chest Press

Cable Standing Incline Chest Press


Utility: Auxiliary
Mechanics: Compound
Force: Push



Stand between two hip height pulleys, facing away from cable columns. Grasp cable stirrups from each side. Position elbows out to sides, lower chest height. Position hands back approximately shoulder height and elbow width. Lean and step forward with one foot in front bending forward knee.


Push stirrups forward and upward at 30º to 45º angle until arms are straight and parallel to one another. Return stirrups to original position until slight stretch is felt in chest or shoulders. Repeat.


Stirrup should follow slight arch pattern, in front/above of upper arm between elbow and chest in stretched position, travelling inward in front/above each shoulder at contracted position. Cable pulleys should be closer together than what is typically found on standard cable cross over setup.
