Dwelling chest exercise: dumbbell fly train



Why are comments off? https://scoobysworkshop.com/contact-scooby/ Video clip showing proper form of the dumbbell fly exercise for pecs. Most people focus on bench press for chest but I have found that for me the fly movements have provided the most muscle growth. This is a great home exercise! Here I am doing it on a bench but I actually prefer to do it flat on the floor to limit my range of motion and protect the shoulders. Using a bench you should have a spotter but on the floor you can easily work out alone.

As with any dumbbell exercise, form is key if you want to maximize your muscle building efforts and minimize the chance of injury. Don’t use too much weight, if you can’t do the exercise slowly then you need to go lighter. Count aloud “one onethousand, two onethousand, three onethousand” on the way up and the way down, if you cant do this on this exercise then you are using too much weight. The reason this exercise method maximizes your muscle growth is because it confines the motion to the muscle you are trying to work out, if your body squirms, swings, and kicks, all you are doing is taking the focus away from the muscle you are trying to exercise.

Anyone can be healthier, have more energy, sleep better, and feel better about themselves through bodybuilding. Bodybuilding doesn’t have to be expensive or take a lot of time, gyms are great but home workouts can save you time and money. A cheap dumbbell set from a garage sale or walmart is all it takes to get started with your home workouts.

  1. I just checked, this was the second video uploaded to YouTube.  Prior to this, I self-hosted this video on my own website and had to pay about 25 cents in bandwidth charges every time someone downloaded it.

  2. Excellent question! To impress people, bend your elbows about 90 degrees but for a safe workout keep them straight. Why? In this exercise the pecs provide a torque around your shoulder. My pecs are capable of generating about 195 ft-lbs of torque – that is, a force of 65lbs at 3' from the shoulder joint. Now if I bend my elbows 90 degrees, the weight is only 1.5' from my shoulder and with my 195ft-lbs of torque I can now use 130lb dumbbells and not work any harder!

  3. when i did these i found it was working my shoulders more than anything. my form was as seen in this video, but i really didnt feel much of a burn on my chest.

    might i be doing something wrong
