8. Incline Dumbbell Fly
Equipment requiredDumbbells, Bench
Secondary musclesAnterior deltoids
Lying on the sloping bench, your feet flat on the floor, one dumbbell in each hand. Hold the weights in a neutral grip with your arms outstretched above your chest.
Slowly lower the dumbbells to the sides in an arc with your arms until you feel a stretch in your pectorals. Do not go below shoulder level. Then return to the original position, making the same arc.
During the whole movement:
- Keep your elbows pointed outward and slightly bent to reduce stress on the joint.
- Keep your shoulders flat against the bench.
