Flat Bench Dumbbell Flyes - Exercise Explained Video Series


          Series of videos explaining how to perform bodybuilding exercises. In part 2 we are going to explain the flat bench dumbbell flyes. Flat bench dumbbell flyes use minimal tricep involvement and allow you to isolate the pecs. Were bench pressing is more of a mass builder for the chest, flyes are more of a shaping exercise.

           To execute the flat bench dumbbell flyes start by lying on the bench with your arms straight above your chest and your palms facing each other.

            Keeping your elbows slightly bent, work the dumbbells down in a wide, arcing movement until your upper arms are parallel with your body. At the bottom of the movement pause for a second and then raise the dumbbells back to the starting position.

           Remember to inhale on the lowering of the dumbbells and get the feeling of a good stretch at the bottom of the movement and exhale on the raising of the dumbbells and flex your chest muscles at the peak of the movement

          To prevent momentum from taking over always keep the arcing motion slow and controlled.

In these videos heavy weights will not be used as the emphasis is on explaination and correct form.
