The machine chest fly is an exercise targeting the chest. The motion is often compared to bear-hugging a tree trunk. In chest workouts, this exercise often follows compound moves such as the bench press.


  1. Great for targeting the inner pecs
  2. Less prone to bad form than the dumbbell version
  3. Great for burn-out sets at the end of a chest workout
