Cable Fly Overview

Cable Fly is a chest-focused exercise that isolates the pectoral muscles by mimicking a hugging motion with the arms to enhance muscle definition and strength.

Muscles Worked

Equipment Needed

Cable Machine, D-handle Grips

How To Perform the Cable Fly

  1. Adjust the pulleys on a cable machine to chest height and attach D-handle grips.
  2. Stand in the center of the machine with a handle in each hand, palms facing forward.
  3. Step forward slightly to create tension in the cables, positioning your feet shoulder-width apart.
  4. With a slight bend in your elbows, extend your arms out to the sides, maintaining tension in your chest.
  5. Exhale and bring the handles together in front of you in a wide arc, squeezing your chest at the movement's peak.
  6. Inhale and slowly return to the starting position, keeping control over the movement.
  7. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.

Pro Tips for Cable Fly

  • Keep a slight bend in the elbows to reduce strain on the joints.
  • Focus on a slow, controlled movement to maximize muscle engagement.
  • Avoid letting the handles touch at the movement's peak to maintain constant tension.
  • Engage your core for stability and to prevent excessive arching of the back.
  • Adjust the pulley height to vary the angle and target different parts of the chest.
