Instead of doing the cable flies, just do regular chest flies with dumbells. Lay on your back on the bench, and hold a DB in each arm (for the cables, I've used 15# each cable, so for DB's I'd grab the 15's), and do a fly with your arms as you would in the video, just w/o the cables. :)
Upright chest press is a good machine for the same muscle group, though. But if you want to stick to essentially the same exercise, just do regular chest flies, no cables. :)

"Why choose failure when success is an option?" - Jillian Michaels
So, I just finished my day 1 workout and I was totally pumped to do it all *perfectly*. I watched all the how to videos to be sure I had it right, then went off to the gym with my worksheet and notes. However, I could not for the life of me manage to set up for flat bench cable flies. The two cable machines are way across the room from each other and I couldn't get it to go on one machine (spacing/angle were all wrong) so I substituted the upright chest press machine instead because it had a note on it that it works your chest/tri groups.
Any thoughts on this? Are there other substitutions you've had to make?
