The Unknown and Unamed exercise.....(so far)

  1. The Unknown and Unamed exercise.....(so far)


    Does anyone know the name of the exercise in which you stand as you would if you were to do cable crossovers,but in this instance you stand straight with a cable in each hand with arms outstretched like a crucifix and then you bring your arms to your side like a reverse lateral raise,and which body part does this work? Im assuming lats,back,traps,shoulders and chest,if so why is everyone not doing this exercise? (i seen someone in the gym doing this as i was leaving and intended on asking them about it but have not seen them since!)
    Cheers in advance bro's!


  2. most of us just do iron crosses instead.
    The Truth is, there is no Truth.

  3. I am guessing from what you are describing a rehabilitation exercise for rotator type injuries. This is one of my post shoulder repair exercises but its done with strict form and very little resistance in the 15-30 rep range. It used to retrain shoulder muscles to work together with back trap pectoral tie in. The layman's explanation.

  4. Cheers lads ill be using this in todays workout!
