When one performs a Chest Press on a bench, there is a bench behind them. This allows the person to push heavy weight. Well, that all changes when performing a Cable Chest Press (video). Your feet are the only thing on a surface, so the rest of your body has to do a lot of work to hold you upright.
The Cable Chest Press stresses your abdomen and legs quite a bit more, to where your body will not be able to support nearly as much weight as you would if you were laying on a bench. Try this during your next workout if your gym carries this equipment. (One could also use bands to perform this exercise)
