Protect Yourself: Use the
Best Dumbbell fly Technique!

A dumbbell fly workout is a popular weightlifting exercise that focuses on strengthening the pectoral muscles, as well as the shoulders and triceps.

This is a simple weight lifting exercise that can be done at home by lying flat on your back on the floor or on a weight bench. This is also the ideal exercise for building width as opposed to thickness in the chest.

For any women out there, this exercise is nothing to be afraid of because it will boost and firm your pectoral muscles to lift your breasts as an added result.

1. To perform this exercise, lay flat on a weight bench holding a dumbbell in each hand.

2. Both arms will extend toward the ceiling with the palms facing each other, and then lower your arms slowly to each side until they are completely extended from your body at a 90° angle.

3. Slowly lower the weights back to the starting position, and repeat the exercise for 12 reps in one set.

The important thing to keep in mind with this exercise is that it can put serious pressure on the elbow joints.

If you have any injury to this area, you may need to wear a brace for this exercise. Make sure that your elbows are bent slightly during the fly, which will reduce any potential for strain or injury.

As you move your arms outward into the fly position, you will inhale, and exhale when you bring your arms back upward.

The best dumbbell fly is a highly popular exercise that has been used for years by professional weightlifters.

This exercise provides a great benefit by targeting the pectoral muscles, and you may find that it is difficult to lift as much weight as you normally do if you have not done this exercise before!

This exercise provides a variety to the normal bench press because it deeply targets the chest, and all weight is focused on the inner pectoral muscles.

Bodybuilders often use this exercise to develop a larger frame because of the wing movement of this exercise.

This will help to open up and expand the chest based on the size of the pectoral muscles, and it is entirely safe for women to do this exercise to tone their pecs and support their breasts.

In fact, it is highly difficult for women to develop the same muscle mass as men, so women doing this exercise do not have to worry about dramatically increasing in size because it is unlikely!
