Cable Standing Chest Press

Cable Standing Chest Press


Utility: Auxiliary
Mechanics: Compound
Force: Push



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 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.


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.


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.
