Mainly just for variety and hitting the chest differently. I do PPL, so I have 2 different push days. Flat, incline and dips and then flat, reverse and cable flyes.

Actually it works the triceps less.

@ajones46 @eknight would it not just stress the long head rather than the lateral? I thought that any kind of supinated push or pull down did this.

In general, pressing movements do very little for the long head. Because it originates on the scapula, and not the humerus (like the other two heads), extension movements are better for incorporating it. -3X

@eknight that's why pressing movement don't do much for the size of triceps.
