How to Incline Cable Fly

Starting Position

1. Stand between two cable machines with a pulley set at an incline.

2. Reach up and grasp the handles with an overhand grip, palms facing each other.

4. Your chest should be up, back straight, and core engaged.

Proper Form

1. Keeping your arms slightly bent, slowly pull the handles down and out to the side until your arms are in a straight line with the floor.

2. Pause for a second, and then slowly bring the handles back up and together.

3. Repeat this movement for the desired number of repetitions.

Breathing Technique

1. Inhale as you pull the handles down and out.

2. Exhale as you bring the handles back up and together.
