Peck Deck and Cable Fly

  1. Adjust the Seat and Handles:
    • Begin by adjusting the seat height to ensure that the handles are at chest level. The handles should align with your mid-chest area when you’re seated. Adjust the machine’s arms to ensure a comfortable starting position.
  2. Select the Appropriate Weight:
    • Choose a weight that allows you to maintain proper form throughout the exercise. Start with a lighter weight if you’re new to the pec deck machine, and gradually increase the resistance as needed.
  3. Position Yourself on the Machine:
    • Sit on the machine with your back against the backrest, and place your forearms and elbows on the padded arms of the machine. Grasp the handles with your palms facing inward. Adjust the seat or machine to ensure your arms are at a 90-degree angle when fully extended.
  4. Perform the Pec Deck Movement:
    • Press the handles together by bringing your forearms toward the midline of your body. Keep a slight bend in your elbows to engage your chest muscles throughout the movement. Focus on squeezing your chest at the peak of the contraction.
  5. Controlled Return to Starting Position:
    • Slowly release the handles and return them to the starting position, allowing your chest muscles to stretch. Maintain control throughout the movement and avoid letting the weights slam together. This controlled eccentric (lowering) phase is essential for muscle engagement and development.

Remember to breathe consistently throughout the exercise, inhaling as you open your arms and exhaling as you bring them together. Maintain good posture and keep your back against the backrest to ensure proper muscle engagement and reduce the risk of injury. Adjust the machine settings and weight based on your fitness level and individual preferences.
