PERSONAL TRAINER INSTRUCTION :
Lay flat on a bench and hold the dumbbells with a closed grip. In a synchronized movement, lower the dumbbells down to your sides while maintaining a slight bend your elbows. Once a stretch is felt across your chest, bring the dumbbells together in front of your body. Exhale as you pull your hands together. Focus on keeping your shoulders depressed through the movement and finish by consciously contracting the pectoral (chest) muscles.
This exercise has multiple variations based on the incline of the bench. Notice in the photos that the bench is set to a flat setting. We advise using a very light weight on a flat bench setting. The dumbbell chest fly is an intermediate exercise. Contact us if you have any questions on this exercise and its variations! One of our trainers would love to help you!
