EXERCISE INSTRUCTIONS:

  • SETUP: Set the cable stations to chest level and attach a D-handle to each side. Take a neutral-grip of each handle. Before you begin, stand slightly ahead of the cable station in a split-stance and pin your shoulders back, puffing your chest, this will protect your shoulders and ensure you perform perfect reps.
  • REP: Keep your hands close together in front of your chest (don’t interlock your fingers) and press the handles out in front of your chest. Control the weight as you return to the center-line of your chest.
  • TIP: Tension is greatest when the handles are furthest away, so resist the urge to “throw” the cables in and out. Control that motherf**ker and enjoy the burn.
