The standing cable chest exercise is one effective way to train the chest, shoulders, and triceps muscles without damaging your rotator cuff muscles.
You can often see health care professionals using this move to rehab and strengthen the anterior deltoid and the shoulder girdle.
One of the few advantages of training with cables over free weights is that you can perform most exercises without a spotter.
Cables also create a study resistance throughout the entire range of motion, from the beginning of the movements to the end as opposed to other free weights such as dumbbells and barbells, etc.
Cables are also easier to control than other free weights which may make them less likely to cause injury and less stressful on joints and soft tissues.
It’s really no surprise why they make perfect rehabilitation programs.
