Need a bit of advice with this as what ever weight i put it at i never seem to feel it in my chest, i just feel the negative in my back. I keep arms straight and bring in so handles touch in front of me, any advice?

Some people have the cables at different heights I find it beside when they're in line with my chest, stepping forward so there's tension and slowly bring them in so I feel it the whole way but I don't touch at the top I hold it near the end of the movement and resist on the way back.

I find if I try to contract my back muscles I feel it more dunno why

@Hamer feeling the muscle gets easier the more muscle you have, more bench and stuff until you reach a certain volume, then try again

step forward with your one foot and bend your arms a bit. If you aim for TUT on this exercise its a killer!

I do cable flies like how you do a dumbell flies. Hands meet in the middle chest not at the buttom. like im a hugging a tree infront of me.. and stepping one foot forward helps for balance.

IMO standing ones suck, one of the most overused. My gym has ones with a seat and they're so much better, you can isolate the chest much better

This. Try them seated, and do them slowly. Take 3-5 seconds on the way up. Pause for 1-2 seconds and go down for another 3-5 seconds.

@Brian hey just saw this. Sorry for the late reply.

I generally do around 5-8 reps with that tempo, with moderate weight. Nothing too heavy, bit heavier enough that you have an rpe of 8 or so
