Stand with the legs slightly apart and lean the torso forward a bit, with the arms spread apart and elbows slightly bent:

• Inhale and squeeze the arms together until the wrists touch. Exhale at the end of the contraction. This is an excellent exercise for working the pectoralis major muscles. Sets with a lot of reps allow you to pump the muscle well. You can work all the fibers of the pectoralis major by varying the angle of the chest and the working angle of the arms (squeezing the arms at various heights).

Comment: Cable crossover flys also contract the pectoralis minor, which Is located deeper than the pectoralis major. Besides stabilizing the scapula (shoulder blade), this muscle also pulls it forward.
