Lever Incline Fly

Lever Incline Fly

The Lever Incline Fly is a highly effective exercise that targets your chest muscles, specifically the pectoralis major and minor. This exercise is performed using a lever machine, which adds stability and control to your movements. By adjusting the incline angle, you can modify the emphasis placed on different parts of your chest for a well-rounded workout. When executed correctly, the Lever Incline Fly not only strengthens your chest muscles but also engages your shoulders and triceps as secondary muscles. This compound movement helps improve upper body strength, stability, and posture. Additionally, it can contribute to a more sculpted and aesthetically pleasing chest. It's important to note that the Lever Incline Fly should be done with proper form and technique to maximize its benefits while minimizing the risk of injury. Start with lighter weights or resistance and gradually increase as you become more comfortable and proficient. Remember to maintain controlled and smooth movements throughout the exercise, without using momentum or excessive force. Including the Lever Incline Fly in your chest workout routine can enhance overall muscular development and make your upper body exercises more well-rounded. However, keep in mind that individual fitness levels and abilities vary, so always listen to your body and adjust the resistance accordingly. Regularly incorporating this exercise into your fitness regimen, along with a balanced diet, can help you achieve your chest training goals.


  • Start by adjusting the lever arms to your desired height on a lever incline fly machine.
  • Sit on the machine with your back flat against the pad and grab the handles with your palms facing down.
  • With a slight bend in your elbows, exhale and slowly open your arms out to the sides, maintaining a slight bend in the elbows throughout.
  • Continue to open your arms until you feel a stretch in your chest.
  • Pause for a moment at the bottom of the movement, then inhale as you slowly bring the handles back together, squeezing your chest muscles.
  • Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.
