Chest Exercises: Dumbbell Flyes
Exercises for Chest Building

Flat Bench Dumbbell flyes are one of the best exercises for chest building.

After the flat bench press, dumbbell flyes are one of the best chest exercises for overall pectoral development.

You can perform flyes on an incline or a decline, but you get maximum chest stimulation on a flat bench.

When you perform flyes on an incline, you emphasize the upper chest. And when you perform flyes on a decline you emphasize the lower chest. However, when you perform flat bench flyes, you get the best overall stimulation of both parts of the chest at the same time.

Below are the pictures.

Chest Exercises: Flat Bench Dumbbell Flyes

Starting Position: Begin by lying on the bench with your arms straight over your chest and your palms facing each other.

Form: Inhale and slowly lower your arms until they are parallel with your body. Pause for a brief second at the bottom of the repetition and then exhale and return to the starting position.

Personal Trainer Tips: Always remember to move in a slow and controlled manner to prevent momentum from taking over.

If you have short legs or feel an excessive arch in your lower back, you can place your feet on the bench to support your posture.

Note: When you place your feet on the bench, you slightly decrease your stability by decreasing your base of support, so you may find it harder to stabilize when your feet are on the bench.
