Exercise Instructions

  1. Set up the cable machine for the cable lower chest raise by adjusting the pulleys to the lowest point possible on both sides and attaching single grip handles.
  2. Set your desired weight on the weight stacks and grasp each handle with your palms facing down. 
  3. With your arms slightly bent at the elbows, keep your chest up and eyes facing forwards. This is the starting position for the exercise.
  4. Rotating at the shoulders only and moving your arms in a semi-circular motion, slowly bring the handles together out in front of your body at around waist height. 
  5. Squeeze your chest and raise the handles in unison straight out in from of you to around lower-chest height.
  6. Lower the handles back to waist height and then slowly lower the weight back to the starting position.
  7. Repeat for desired reps.

Exercise Tips:

  1. Form is more important that weight on this exercise.
  2. Focus on getting a good chest squeeze when bringing the handles together and raising them up.
  3. Do not change the position of your arms throughout the movement. Focus on moving only at the shoulders.
