Equipment Needed

Cable Crossover Machine

Mechanics Type


Proper Exercise Technique

Place the cable crossover on the setting closest to the ground and attach the single grip handle. Stand roughly in the center of the cable crossover machine with your feet wider than shoulder width apart.

Your foot should be 18-24 inches away from the handle. Bend down and grip the handle with both hands. Keep your arms extended and place your hands next to your hip. Bend your knee, allowing the cable crossover handle to pull your body towards the point where the handle is at rest.

Maintain tension on the cable and don't let the weights go all the way down to the start position. Begin the movement by pulling the cable up and across your body, towards your opposite shoulder. At the finish point, the cable should be almost completely extended with both arms gripping the handle high above your shoulder-as though you were about to swing an axe. Be sure to rotate your torso and pivot your back foot as you perform the movement. Pause for a one-count, return to the start position and repeat. After you've completed 10-15 repetitions, rotate and start from the opposite side.
