How to do One Arm Cable Chest Press
One-Arm Cable Chest Press – Benefits
- The one-arm cable chest press is an upper body strength exercise that targets the chest, shoulders, and triceps. The tension in the cable provides a softer and more continuous resistance than free weights that can be affected by momentum. Thanks to constant resistance, it triggers the work of many small stabilizing muscles in your chest in addition to the pectoral muscles.
- Performing the exercise on each arm separately allows both chest to work equally. Standing during the exercise allows for more total body muscle integration and increases the functional nature of the movement. Thanks to free work, you do not experience muscle imbalance, your muscles develop equally and you feel that you are experiencing pump at the end of the exercise.
