How to perform?

Cable Chest Flyes are an isolation exercise that targets the chest muscles. This exercise is performed by pulling a cable from a high position while keeping the arms straight and the torso stabilized. It's a great exercise for hitting the pecks from a different angle and really maximizing growth.

Steps to perform:

  1. Set cable pulleys to chest height and attach D-handles.
  2. Stand between the pulleys, one foot forward for stability.
  3. Grab handles with a slight bend in your elbows, palms facing forward.
  4. Engage your core and maintain a slight bend in your knees.
  5. Exhale, open your arms in a wide arc, squeezing your chest at the end.
  6. Keep a slight bend in your elbows throughout the movement.
  7. Inhale as you bring the handles back together in a controlled manner.
  8. Maintain a stable stance and avoid arching your back.
