Crosses on reclining bench with cables: Execution

The starting position sees the athlete sitting on a bench reclined between 10 ° and 30 °, with his back in his position of strength, legs apart and feet firmly resting on the ground behind the knees or better still locked in the special stops, when present. The elbows are slightly flexed, the wrists straight or flexed and the shoulders are extended and abducted in varying proportions depending on the inclination of the bench. The handles are held at the same height as the lower sternum or upper abdomen with a neutral grip. The execution consists in having each handle trace an arc of a circle on the same plane on which they lay at the start. During the movement, the shoulders flex in the sagittal plane and adduce in the longitudinal plane, while the shoulder blades begin to abduct and rotate downward in the last third of the movement. The execution ends when the hands come to touch or cross.
