Although the bench press is widely regarded as the best exercise for chest activation, the cable crossover offers advantages in terms of aesthetics and the ability to target different areas of the chest. Ultimately, the decision between the cable crossover and the bench press comes down to personal preference, availability of equipment, and time constraints. To maximize muscle growth, it is recommended to perform the cable crossover in a rep range of 6-12 with challenging weights.
