This exercise reverses the position you’re using with the cables and now rather than pushing down, you’re pulling up.
As you might imagine, that is going to change the nature of the stress being placed on the chest, putting more emphasis on the upper chest instead of the lower.
- 1Stand in the middle of the cable machine
- 2Grab both lower pulleys and keep them to the sides of the hips
- 3Lift the handles up and contract the chest up top
- 4Go back down and repeat, alternating between arms – Left over right, right over left
