incline cable chest press with bench

SEATED INCLINE CABLE CHEST PRESS

VIDEO DEMO:


EXERCISE INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. SETUP: Attach D-handles to low pulleys, then set your bench to a high incline and position the bench so the seat is about a foot in front of the pulleys (this will create tension for the full rep). Take an overhand-grip of each handle and sit with your chest up & shoulders back for good posture.
  2. LIFT: With the handles just outside your pecs, press the cables forward and in until your arms are extended and the handles meet in the center of your chest.
  3. TIP: You’ll get an amazing squeeze in your pecs on this move if you refuse to blast through the reps and control the tempo each time!
