Hi, welcome back to the Cave Cam. I'm Coach PJ at CPJ Fitness in San Diego, California. Today, I'm going to show you an exercise that works the inner pectorals. I'm going to show you a great way to attack the inner pecs while using a dual cable unit and also some free weights. We're standing in this position, we'll grab the cable units, two hand grips, arms are separated. You'll get your split stance, stagger stance, leaning forward, making sure the cables don't pull you back. They're going to want to have a tendency to do that when you have weight on them. So you lean forward, arms are out in front. When you bring those arms out in front here you get full extension and pinch those pecs together. You want them really tight and when you open up the arms, you're going to come just about the shoulder, not behind, this is going to put a lot of unnecessary stress on the shoulders. So you want to bring it just to here in front of the shoulders, soft elbows and then you close it. So when you open up that deal you inhale and when you close it, you exhale. Get a good weight. The nice thing about cables and on this chest fly movement, working the inner pecs, you can speed it up and bleed it with speed. The cable is going to keep you in a line for the most part and all you have to do is crank. You don't need a spotter. That's a good bleed, that's a good crank on the chest. Now a good other alternative is to use free weights, same thing, staggered stance. If you get courageous enough you grab a pair of dumbbells here, open up and squeeze. This is the exact same movement but a little different stress on the body, a little more stress on the shoulders. There's no support of the cable unit so you have to keep it in alignment. This is a good upgrade from doing the cables. And again, it's a great bleed. It targets the inner pecs, enjoy. Once again, I'm Coach PJ at CPJ Fitness, and I just demonstrated an exercise that works the pectorals.
