How to Do a Decline Cable Fly | Chest Workout

Hi. This is Max Tapper, again, with Howcast.
And what I’m gonna show you today is how to do a decline cable press, all right? Now again,
as I told you before, with any cable machine, you want to directly oppose that resistance,
so those lines will always be going along your forearm, got it? Those lines always go
along your forearm. Let me show you. All right, so body straight up, almost leaning back in
this position, we’re pulling down, and we’re gonna end up at waist level. Squeeze. Slow
on the way up, nice and controlled, down and squeeze. So again, squeeze. Now, remember,
that resistance falls right on our forearm. If it’s not, we’re doing different things
in our shoulders that we probably don’t want to do. If you want an exercise that’s gonna help
you develop your lower pec, this is an excellent exercise. The one tip I have when we’re doing
a lower pec press, or a lower pec fly, is that you really want to make sure your body
is very erect, almost leaning back. What that does is it gives us the perfect position of
pull to get the lower pec. If our body’s forward, were obviously not gonna get that lower pec
as much. We’re gonna go right into our middle pec. We need it to be here. So your arms need
to be under your body, about waist height.

    hmm says decline fly, calls it a decline press, says it's a home workout, has a cable machine. I appreciate the information but a little more thought when it comes to naming the video's would be a help.
