My gym has just got this machine. Unfortunately, their idea of "easy-to-read" instructions is a stick man without hands, whose arms are obscured by the padding.

Any video I have seen of a reverse fly machine seems more about putting your arms on grips far in front, but nothing here seems to match.

I've seen people look confused at the machine, but no one using it so I don't feel too alone in my confusion! Any ideas?
