Lee Priest doing Cable Crossovers

Here is Lee Priest doing his thing on one of my favourite pieces of gym equipment - the Powertec Shape System.

People incorrectly assume that you can't do cable crossovers with the Powertec Shape system because it is not as wide as the traditional machine. However as Lee demonstrates in the video you can do them easily. As a matter of fact, the exercise is more like a traditional pec fly because the resistance is coming from behind. Whereas on a wide cable crossover the resistance is coming from the side. Having the cables closer together also opens up a wide variety of exercises too. My favourite being the seated chest press. During the course of Lee's home gym workout videos you will also see other exercises that you can do on the Shape System.
