Lying cable chest fly

The lying cable chest fly is an isolation movement that uses a cable stack and a flat bench to build bigger and stronger pectoral muscles. It is common in upper-body and chest-focused muscle-building workouts, often as a pre-exhaust at the beginning of a workout or as a finishing movement at the end. It is often used in combination with other presses or flyes to target the chest from different angles.


  1. Unlike dumbbells, cables provide constant tension, including at peak contraction
  2. Being able to push your torso down against the bench can allow you to focus on the mind-muscle connection and move slightly more weight
  3. Stretches the chest muscles under load which can lead to greater muscle gain
