Cable Flys

  • Set the pulleys on a dual-cable machine to chest height, and stand between the two stacks. Grab the handles.
  • Keeping your back straight and core engaged, raise your arms out to your sides, palms facing forward, and walk a step or two forward in order to create tension on the cables. Stand with one foot in front of the other.
  • Bend your elbows slightly, making sure not to let them travel behind your shoulders. This is your starting position.
  • Pull your hands toward each other in wide arcs in front of you, pausing when your hands touch before slowly returning to the starting position. Alternate your forward foot with each set.
