Cable Chest Press

  • Press your back flat against the back pad and pull your navel toward your lower back to stabilize your core.

  • Press the weight slowly away from your chest until your arms are straight. Pause with your hands in front of your chest, then slowly return to your starting position.

  • If your gym does not have a machine to do this exercise as pictured, you can do the same exercise standing with your back to the two cables and one foot forward. Do one arm at a time and get an oblique workout while in a staggered leg stance.

  • Chest 

  • Arms  Shoulders 

  • Pectoralis major, Anterior deltoids, Triceps brachii

  • TIP: Take your elbows as far back as your shoulders, not behind them. The time to push your arms through a wide range of motion is during stretching, not during weight training exercises.
