If you want a brilliantly toned upper body performing dumbbell flyes can help. The exercise primarily works on the muscles of your chest and shoulders and also strengthens the muscles of your upper back and arms. Dumbbell flyes mainly target the deltoid muscles on your shoulders. Deltoid muscles start from shoulder blade and collar bone, stretch over your shoulder and extend to your upper arm bone. To an extent, you also work your wrists and your triceps in dumbbell flyes. However, you need to ensure that you execute dumbbell flyes with perfection so that you are working the proper muscles.
You can perform dumbbell flyes either on declined or inclined benches as well as on exercise balls. In this video, Kaizzad Capadia Master fitness trainer, Kaizzad Capadia who is also the co-founder of K11 Fitness academy, shows the correct way to perform dumbbell flyes. To do the dumbbell flye, you first need to activate your kinetic chain and use your entire body. To ensure that the exercise works your pectoral muscles effectively you need to make sure that the up and down movements are done with perfection. In addition, to reduce the risk of any injury you must also pay attention to your form. Remember not to snap out of the movement suddenly when the arms extend too much above you.
In this video, Kaizad demonstrates another exercise called cable crossover. A cable crossover is kind of flye done with cables instead of dumbbells. So hit play and watch the video. If you want a sculpted back, perform this exercise.
