Cable Chest Press


  • Fasten a pair of handles in the top position of a cable cross. Grip the handles, step forward, and lean slightly forward.
  • Push the handles forward until they meet in front of your body.
  • With control, let the handles go back to the starting position.


Cable chest press is a pressing exercise with a different resistance curve than for example dumbbell chest presses, as the direction of resistance comes more from the sides. That might make it easier to keep tension on the chest muscles throughout the whole movement, and thus possibly benefit muscle growth.
