Standing Pushdowns

If there is one exercise I absolutely love for the lower chest, this is it.

Do not leave the gym without trying it.


  1. 1
    Stand in front of the assisted pull-up machine and place your hands on the pad at shoulder width
  2. 2
    Lean over slightly and press straight down
  3. 3
    Contract the chest, hold peak flexion and go back up slowly
  4. 4
    Repeat the motion pattern

I like doing a mirror rep drop set on this one to fully fatigue the muscle groups and get them feeling it.

Press a heavy weight for 10 reps and then drop the weight by about 30%. Then press out another 10 reps to complete the exercise.

Do try and go heavy on this move as the exercise lends for it while maintaining the mind-muscle connection.
