Chest Exercise Demonstrations Using Cable Crossovers

September 28, 2010 by Joey Vaillancourt · 7 Comments 

The chest is one of the favored muscle groups amongst a man everywhere.

There are countless methods on how to build the big chest but today we are going to focus on how to bring out more definition on the inner crevices of your chest muscles.

The best practice in building up the inner portion of your chest is to include exercises that provide constant tension on the muscle and which for today’s purpose we are going to incorporate cable cross overs.

Cable cross overs are very similar to dumbbell flies in that they are the exact same movement but the cables provide constant tension on the muscle whereas the dumbbell flies do not.

I do recommend using cable flies as well as dumbbell flies but I would simply suggest to rotate and cycle each exercise during different muscle building phasees.

I’m going to demonstrate of triple set involving all cable work.

Here is the list of exercises you are about to see in the video below:


Low pulley cable cross overs:

The low pulley cable cross overs are designed to work the upper portion of your chest as well as the inner portion.

In this movement you will more than likely be at your weakest in your capability of what you can lift compared to the other angles you are going to use therefore it is important that you use a weight that is appropriate.

Midrange cable cross overs:

The midrange cable cross overs will work them made chest muscles as well as the inner portion.

This movement is similar to the flat bench press in that it works the same axis of the muscle.

In this particular position you will be at your second strongest capability.

Upper cable cross overs:

This particular variation works the lower chest as well as the inner chest and it is the exercise and which you will be at your strongest.

By including all three of these exercises at the end of a workout after your compound movements you will insure better overall muscle development all your inner chest.

Start with the low cable cross overs followed by the midrange cross overs and finally followed by the upper cable cross overs.

You can choose to either use the same weight for each exercise or adjust accordingly on the fly while you perform your cross overs.
