Cable Crossover Flys

I read a Frederic Delavier’s book « Strength Training Anatomy » and I learned good stuff.

Stand with your legs slightly apart and your torso in little inclined. Your arms spread with your elbows slightly bent on the pads and a handle in each hand :

  • Inhale and tightens your arms to bring the handles in contact

  • Exhale at the end of the movement and returns to the starting position by controlling the movement.

This exercise works the pectoralis major. By changing the torso’s inclinaison and the angle of your arms, you can work the entire pectoralis major.

This exercise work the pectoralis minor under the pectoralis major. The pectoralis minor’s function is to stabilize the scapulae (shoulder blades) and projects the shoulder forward.
