How to Do an Incline Cable Fly

Learn how to do an incline cable fly from certified personal trainer Max Tapper in this home chest workout for men video from Howcast.


Hi. This is Max Tapper again with Howcast. Today, I'm going to show you how to do an incline cable fly. Obviously, if it says incline, that means we're looking to work the bulk of our chest and the front of our shoulder. On a cable machine it's no different. All we have to do is make sure that our resistance is coming from below us, and as we contract we bring our arms up and over and in front of our upper chest.

Let me show you how that works. We're going to lean back, grab a hold of these handles, which should be coming from behind and below you. Remember that: behind and below. This is our starting position. We're pulling forward, contracting over the top of the chest. Slow on the way back down and parallel to the floor. Back up to the top. Slow on the way back down. Parallel to the floor. Back up to the top.

This is an excellent exercise if your goal is specifically to build the upper pec and to work on defining the shoulders. This is an awesome exercise to add to your repertoire. Definitely take a look at the cable incline fly if you're looking to advance yourself or to increase some of the musculature in your upper pec.
