How to Do Standing Incline Cable Press

The standing incline cable press should begin with good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.

If any pain is experienced, immediately stop the standing incline cable press.


Beginning Incline Cable Press

1. Face away from the cable columns and stand between two hip-high pulleys.

2. From either side, grab the cable stirrups.

3. Lower your chest height by extending your elbows out to the sides.

4. Hands should be about shoulder height and elbow width back.

5. Lean forward and take a stride forward with one foot in front, bending your knee forward.


Incline Cable Press Movement

1. Begin with your arms at your sides, elbows bent and pointed out, at chest level.

2. Exhale slowly and raise your arms above your head.

3. Inhale and return to the beginning posture by slowly lowering your arms to your sides.

4. Continue to push yourself up.


Incline Cable Press Benefits

The primary benefit of incline presses is that they strengthen the upper region of the pectoral muscles. Because it's similar to a shoulder press, you activate your shoulders more when the bench is positioned at an inclination (15 to 30 degrees).
