Commercial Pec Deck Machine
The pec deck machine, or machine fly, as it is more commonly known, is a piece of gym equipment that is made specifically to isolate the chest muscle groups, or pectoral muscle groups from which the name “pec deck” is derived, during workout, thus enabling one to really work those muscles in particular. It is a piece of great equipment to get new gym-goers started on chest workouts, as it provides lesser safety risks compared to using free weights in workouts such as the dumbbell fly.
To start using the pec deck machine, ensure that you have an ample resistance setting on the machine for your fitness level. It is wrong to overwork your muscles, as this can lead to loads of muscle strain and injury. You may also adjust around the seat and paddings to your content. Afterwards, steadily position yourself on the seat, then put your back against the padding. Place your forearms on the arm pads, with them bent in a right angle, and your elbows in line with your lower chest part.;
To perform the workout, simply tighten the chest muscles to bring your arms together. Once you have reached the lockout state of the contraction, slowly revert the motion by loosening up your chest muscles until your arms are perpendicular to the body. You have the freedom of choosing how many reps, and how many sets you feel would be ideal for your current fitness capability, workout goals, and gym experience.
