Decline Cable Press

Roll an incline bench over in between the cables. You’re going to use both cables for this exercise. Make sure the cables are at the top slot. Pick a weight similar to what you used for the bench press. Grab the cables, stand over the bench then slowly and carefully lie down on the bench. For the exercise, press the cables down and towards the middle of your body, arcing like you have in previous exercises. Squeeze and hold that contraction for a second then slowly release. Shoot for the 10 to 12 rep range. Be careful getting off the bench!
