Flat bench cable crossovers is a popular exercise for building muscle mass and strength in the chest muscles. To perform this exercise, you should begin by lying flat on your back on a bench, with your feet firmly planted on the ground. Grasp the handles of two cable machines situated at shoulder height with your palms down, and then slowly bring the handles down to your sides. As you bring the handles down, you should focus on squeezing your chest muscles together. Your arms should remain straight but not locked out during the movement. Once you have brought the handles down as low as you can, pause for a second, and then slowly bring them back up to the starting position. It is important to keep your core engaged and back flat during the exercise to avoid cheating. Flat bench cable crossovers can provide a beneficial variation to traditional chest exercises, as it places constant tension on your muscles throughout the entire range of motion. This exercise is suitable for both beginners and advanced lifters, but it should be performed with proper form and moderate weights to avoid injury.
