I have overdevelopped delts from flat bench and upright rows, neither I do anymore. I cant do any pressing movements at the moment due to shoulder problems.

I want to develop my chest without developping my anterior delts so much but I dont have a pec deck machine.

I have adjustable parallel cable pulleys, that can be adjusted to all heights.

I am wondering if its possible for me to do a tranverse adduction movement rather than http://www.exrx.net/WeightExercises/Pec ... ngFly.html

If not possible how could I manipulate the ROM as to isolate the chest from the delts?

You can do transverse adduction flies if your cable set-up can be adjusted so that you can hold the cable handles while your arms are in the correct position. This might be easier to do seated than standing. If you have ankle cuffs, put them on the forearms instead of holding the cable handles. It's awkward, but it's better than nothing.

But when your shoulders heal, think about replacing barbell bench presses and upright rows with their dumbbell equivalents.
