SETUP: Attach a D-handle to a low pulley stand about a foot ahead of the cable station, so you can feel it trying to pull you back. I like to turn my body slightly, so I’m not quite 90 degrees, as this forces the chest to become the primary driver and not the shoulders. Pin your shoulders back and puff your chest out to maintain great posture.
REP: Drive your handle up in a diagonal arc-like motion across your body until your hand is above shoulder level, then control the lowering phase.
TIP: This is truly one of the best chest exercises out there, because it can be performed with a light weight, it attacks the muscle fibers of the upper pecs (the “weak point” for most people), and it draws the handles beyond the mid-line of the body (which creates adduction, and tha’ts awesome for chest development). I like to place my non-working hand on the working pec muscle to really FEEL each rep working.
