Dumbbell Flys

Starting Position
Lie flat on a bench. Hold dumbbells with arms extended and elbows slightly bent.

INHALE: Lower dumbbells until elbows are at shoulder height.

EXHALE: Raise the dumbbells up until they meet.

Special Instructions
A narrow bench will allow free movement of the shoulders. This is not an exercise for heavy weights. Keeping arms slightly bent will less the stress on the elbow.
