Force: Push



Stand facing behind cable bar, mounted on each side to lower chest height narrow double pulley cables. Grasp cable bar with wide overhand grip. Position bar upper mid-chest height with elbows angled behind and downward. Lean and step forward with one foot in front, bending forward knee.


Push cable bar forward and upward at 30º to 45º until arms are straight. Return cable bar to original position until slight stretch is felt in chest or shoulders. Repeat.
