Chest Exercises - Incline Bench Cable Fly
Primary Muscles: Pectoralis Major and Minor
Secondary Muscles: Triceps
  1. Place the incline bench in the center of the two pulleys on the cable crossover machine. The handles on the pulleys should be set to the lowest position.
  2. Perform this exercise while lying with your back on the incline bench and your legs securely on the floor.
  3. Your arms should be fully extended (elbows soft) with your palms facing towards each other. The handles are almost touching suspended directly above your chest.
  4. Pinch your shoulder blades together with your chest sticking out for the duration of the exercise.
  5. Lower the weight out to the side until your arms are parallel with the floor. Pull the handles back up and consciously flex your chest muscles at the top.

Helpful Hints:
We recommend the bench angle be no greater than 45 degrees for this exercise. By maintaining proper form during this exercise, you prevent shoulder injuries. Do not allow your elbows to dip below the level of your shoulders.
