Hold CrossToner overhead by the long handles so that unit is parallel to ground and long handles are pointing to the front and unit is slightly in front of head. Pull long handles together with hands and elbows aligned perpendicular to the floor so that arms are always parallel to each other. Works upper chest and front/top of shoulders.
Similar to standard Pec Fly, but the exercise ends with elbows touching, which adds maximum intensity to the exercise.
Multi Position Chest Fly
Start with low height chest fly for one rep, move to medium height for one rep, then to high height for one rep, back to medium for one rep, then back to low height for one rep.
Climbing Chest Fly
Start with low height chest fly position. As you start to close handles, simultaneously begin raising the CrossToner so that you end at the high pec fly position at the peak of the movement. Then slowly release AND lower the CrossToner so that you end up back at the original starting position. Do one set of 8-12 reps, then for the next set, start at the high chest position and do this exercise in reverse.
Start with middle chest position with hands at chest level. Slowly close CrossToner just like standard pec fly. While continuing to hold the lower handles together isometrically, extend your arms out in front parallel to the ground. Then bring the CrossToner back into your chest, then release the handles slowly. That’s one rep. Do one set of 8-12 reps.
Hold the ends of the long handles and point the CrossToner short handles away from you and parallel to, or at a 30 degree angle to the floor. This exercise mimics the latter part of a true cable crossover machine exercise, but with much less stress on the shoulder joints.
Same as CrossOvers, but with short handles facing (almost touching) chest/stomach. The short handles should remain under the arms during the exercise. This variation may be easier on the wrists for some.
