Lying Cable Flies

Cable flies are an excellent way to add shape and size to the chest, and are therefore an excellent exercise for those with Pectus Excavatum.


Preparation

Grasp two opposing low pulley stirrup attachments. Lie supine on bench, in middle and perpendicular to both pulleys. Slightly bend elbows and internally rotate shoulders so elbows are back.

Execution

Bring cable attachments together in hugging motion with elbows in fixed position and shoulders internally rotated so elbows are to sides. Return to starting position until slight stretch. Repeat.
