The weekend has touched down. Woot. Hope it’s going to be a lovely one for you!
Well, weight training can pretty much help you out in any fitness or health goal. Almost 99% guaranteed!
So, let’s talk reverse flys today-shall we?!
Focus On : Reverse Fly
The reverse fly is similar to a chest fly (uh, duh) but turned around. Meaning, your face/chest faces down toward the floor–whether that is on a bench, standing, or kneeling is up to you.
A reverse fly works the back, upper back, and shoulder muscles. Remember how we’re bringing sexy back? Oh yah.
Because I am not feeling wordy today, I’ll leave you with a bunch of pics and a tad of explanation.
double the fun:
To do the reverse fly correctly:
- Tip forward (this is vital if standing/sitting/kneeling)
- Squeeze the back muscles to bring the weights to the side
- Don’t fly the weights above the shoulder level <—could cause injury (and may engage in swinging, which does NADA for you)
- Keep back strong by bracing the abs
If you’re looking for a good back and shoulder workout, do the reverse fly 3 different ways for 12 reps each. The 3rd set (the 3rd way) should be hard to get through, but not impossible (for suggested weight selection).
Have a GREAT weekend!
Which of the above ways is YOUR favorite to do a reverse fly?? What is YOUR favorite way to work your back??
