Chest flyes are a great exercising for chest developing .. but at the same period, they are one of the exercises that are most commonly done anything wrong. A lot of hours, people end up reaching their anterior deltoid too much in the process and in this video I explain 3 easy fixes to do chest flyes properly.
First thing you want to do is stop rounding your shoulders when you bring your limbs together. When you do this, you are basically telling your chest to take a seat while your anterior delt does all the work. Instead, what you want to do is over underscore rolling your shoulders back, depressing your scapula and KEEPING them there during the entire set.
The next thing is you want to make sure you are squeezing down on your serratus anterior and your lat muscles. When you properly retract and depress your scapula, you should notice a slight outward turning of your limbs and when you squeeze down on that and hold that in place, you should feel your lat muscles and the “fingers ” on your ab side walls become tight and full and this is going to allow you isolate your chest as much as possible.
The third and final tip is you want to stop bending your arms and bringing your hands together. When you do this, you are immediately restriction full range of motion and won’t ever get that peak contraction. You must understand that the chest is run fully by complete elbow abduction .. This means you must bring your elbows all the way to the midline of your body in order to reach true full scope of motion.
Try these out the next time you go to do chest flyes and let me know how you like it!
