Single Arm Cable Crossover / Benefits

  • The single arm cable crossover is an upper body exercise that targets the chest muscles. Working the chest one side at a time allows you to focus on the balance between the sides of your chest and really feel the chest muscles contracting. The tension in the cable provides a softer and more continuous resistance than free weights that can be affected by momentum. In addition, performing the exercise on each arm separately allows both chest to work equally.
