🔥LOW CABLE CHEST FLY👇
✅ The standing cable chest press is one of the most functional horizontal pressing exercises there is. Unfortunately, it’s oftentimes an overlooked and undervalued gem of a movement. Besides providing high levels of tension to the chest, shoulders, and triceps they also hammer the core, hips, and spinal stabilizers. Additionally, they’re quite versatile and adaptable as they can easily be modified in a number of ways.
✅ The set up is pretty easy: you place the cable at its lower attachment, you grab it on both sides with your palms facing upwards, and you stay in the middle with a slight bent front leg and a straight back leg sitting on its toes.
At this point you lock your shoulders DOWN and your scapulas BACK, pushing your chest out and maintaining a neutral spine.
From here nothing moves except for your arms: think about hugging someone in front of you! ✅
❌ The wrong one is the typical dude who either didn’t ask for the exercise demonstration or he’s loaded the cables too much, not being able to perform the exercise.
His back is rounded which means his shoulders aren’t tucked down and his scapulas aren’t tucked back. This also means his chest is not sticking out and not getting engaged at all.
At this point the exercise becomes front delt/bicep but also nerve dominant, which will definitely equal chronic nerve pain if done for long… with zero chest growth of course. ❌
