Exercise of The Week: Laying Chest Fly
One of the most important things to remember is that if you begin getting bored with your workout…chances are you are going to stop doing it as often. That is why it is very important to change up your routine every once in a while. Find a new exercise and find out what works for you. Right now My nemesis is the twisting knee tucks it is the latest on the “love to hate” exercise list. On days where I don’t want to torture myself I like to do these…laying chest fly. I love these because you can do them at home and they are quick and not too complicated. All you need is a mat and 5-10lb dumbbells and you are ready to go! So how do you do them?
You are going to begin by laying down on your mat and raising your legs at a 90 degree angle. Keeping your elbows slightly bent, raise your arms up to the ceiling like in picture A. Now open your arms out to the side like in B. Try and keep your hands about 1-2 inches off the ground. Make sure to engage your core as you do this. You do not want your body moving to either side as your arms move down. Now go back to A. See, it really isn’t that complicated. Do 2-3 sets of 10 reps and you are golden. Good luck!
