Incline cable chest fly

The incline cable chest fly is an isolation movement that uses a cable stack and an incline bench to target the upper portion of the pectoral muscles. It is common in upper-body and chest-focused muscle-building workouts, often after pressing movements like the barbell or dumbbell bench press or as a finishing movement at the end of the workout. It is often used in combination with other flyes to target the chest from different angles.

Benefits

  1. Unlike dumbbells, cables provide constant tension, including at peak contraction
  2. Can quickly switch weights for dropsets
  3. The line of resistance from the cables targets the muscles of the upper pectorals
  4. Stretches the chest muscles under load which can lead to greater muscle gain
