    The high-performance reverse fly machine for effective shoulder and back training

    The reverse fly machine is a very effective strength training machine that fits perfectly into any training routine for full-body workouts. The reverse fly machine trains multiple groups of shoulder and back muscles at the same time.

    eGym’s reverse fly machine, which is like a reverse butterfly, is a state-of-the-art professional-level strength training machine. The training weight is controlled by a motor that dynamically adjusts the resistance to your individual performance. This allows you to use and increase your strength more effectively than with conventional reverse fly training using weights.

    Reverse fly machine: Key muscles for healthy posture

    The reverse fly machine primarily trains your upper back muscles, in particular the posterior deltoid muscle and the trapezius. Your upper back muscles allow you to open and extend your arms backwards. Opening the chest against resistance will not just strengthen the muscles of your upper back, but also prevent or reduce shortening of muscles in the chest area. This in turn helps to prevent tension and pain around the neck.

    Digital fitness technology for stronger shoulder and back muscles

    The digital reverse fly machine is ideal for strengthening the target muscles in the shoulder and back area. eGym’s digital fitness technology ensures fast results while also increasing motivation as you train.

    With conventional gym equipment, after significant progress at the start, you often reach a point where your workout progress starts to stagnate.  The more your body and muscles get used to a particular machine and the way you train on them, the less strength you’ll gain from subsequent workouts. Your training on eGym strength machines is automatically periodized to counteract this effect.

    Possible training goals for the eGym reverse fly machine

    • Athletics

    • Muscle building

    • General fitness

    • Body toning

    • Weight loss

    • Health

    eGym’s automatic periodization continuously changes the stimulation of the muscles by regularly changing the training method and is individually optimized to support different training goals. The reverse fly machine has different training programs that allow you to boost your strength, firm your figure, or improve your mobility – it’s up to you. Whatever goal you select, you will always train using proven methods based on sports science.

    The numerous training programs make it easy for everyone to train successfully – from couch potatoes to fitness fanatics or competitive athletes – always at exactly the right level to meet their needs.

    How effective is training on a reverse fly machine?

    Other strength training machines are certainly firmer gym favorites, such as the biceps machine or butterfly. Naturally, having built arms and a strong chest are usually higher priorities for many gym-goers and for bodybuilders in particular, who’ll want impressively pumped pecs and biceps. But training on the reverse fly machine is an excellent idea in this situation.

    A one-sided workout that is supposedly designed to sculpt a muscular appearance will often result in muscular imbalances if the chest and front shoulder muscles are overtrained through excessive bench presses and similar exercises. These imbalances are noticeable not just through disproportional muscle growth. Intensive training can also cause a hunchback, as can be seen in many bodybuilders and strength athletes. The back fly machine allows you to effectively train the opposing muscles.

    The maximum training weight of our reverse fly machine is 100 kg. This means even advanced athletes can train effectively on this back strength machine to build muscles and correct muscular imbalances.

    Desk work and excessive use of smartphones and tablets mean many people suffer from a rounded back these days, with hunched shoulders and shortening in the chest and shoulder muscles. Targeted strength training on the reverse fly machine can expand the chest area and strengthen the back muscles, straightening the posture.

    Proper exercise technique when using the reverse fly machine

    If you want to achieve success doing back flys on the reverse fly machine while avoiding injuries, you’ll need to ensure the machine is correctly adjusted. eGym equipment is designed in such a way that it enables even inexperienced users to perform the exercises properly.

    eGym machines are able to measure your maximum strength at any time, which they then use to determine your optimal training weight. The software ensures that the weight is adapted to your real strength and fitness level.

    Typical mistakes on the reverse fly machine include using the strength of your upper body or stretching the head forward to create more force. These errors are the result of using too high a weight, which is what makes the machine’s automatic determination of the correct training weight so advantageous.

    Errors caused by incorrect adjustment of the seat are also automatically eliminated on the eGym reverse fly machine. All you need to do is set the correct seat height just once, then it will be automatically adjusted every time you work out.

    It is important to sit upright during the exercise and to maintain contact with the chest pad. This ensures your buttocks do not slide back into the back rest. Be sure to hold the machine’s handles with your hands facing inwards, at a level between your chest and shoulders. This will put the shoulders in a correct externally rotated position. The elbows are slightly flexed during the exercise.
