- Grasp two opposing high pulley dumbbell attachments. Lie
supine on decline bench, in middle and perpendicular to both
pulleys. Slightly bend elbows and internally rotate shoulders
so elbows are back.
- Bring cable stirrups together above upper abdomen in hugging
motion; elbows in fixed position and shoulders internally rotated
so elbows are to sides. Return to starting position until chest
is slightly stretched. Repeat.
- Since incline of bench does not actually affect angle of
pull as with dumbbells, similar effect can be achieved on flat
bench if cable stirrups are brought together above upper abdomen
instead of chest. Keep shoulders internally rotated so elbows
point downward at bottom position
and outward at top position. Keep elbows at fixed angle, only
slightly bent. Anterior Deltoid will no longer act as synergist
in steep decline bench position.
