If you really want to focus on your chest and getting those big gains one of the best ways to do that is by incorporating dumbbell flys into your chest workout. For those of you that are new to dumbbell flys starting with incline dumbbell flys is the way to go.
A lot of bodybuilders use this exercise because it is a great isolation exercise that focuses on the chest. You will also activate the anterior deltoid (front deltoid) and the biceps. If you perform this exercise correctly you will get a great pump in your chest.
Target Muscle: Chest
Experience Level: Intermediate
Equipment Needed: Dumbbells, Adjustable Bench
How To: Incline Dumbbell Flys
As Scott says you should lay on an incline bench with the dumbbells over your chest and your arms slightly bent. Keep your feet firmly planted on the floor with a slight arch in your back.
Lower the dumbbells as far as you can until you feel a good stretch in your chest and shoulders. Always make sure the dumbbells are over your chest. If you feel the dumbbells drift towards your neck and face stop re-adjust and then restart the exercise.
The Final Stretch
As always don’t forget to warm up before and stretch after every workout. Just remember to practice the proper form. Even if you need to start with a lower weight until you get the form down that’s okay. Its better than getting injured and missing weeks of lifting.
