Exercise of the Week

Chest Fly

By Joni Hyde of WorkoutsForWomen.com

The Chest Fly works the Pectoral muscles that lie underneath the breast tissue. Though this exercise will not reverse sagging breast tissue, it will firm up the underlying and surrounding muscle, giving the chest an overall more well toned appearance.

Lie on your back, with your feet and back flat. 3 lb or 5lb dumbbells in each hand. Start with your arms straight up, directly over chest, palms facing each other.

  • With elbows soft (slight bend), lower the weight downward, allowing elbows to lightly tap the floor.
  • Return to start, keeping weight tracking above the chest.
Keep your back flat and elbows soft throughout the exercise. Complete 20 repetitions.
