Incline Dumbbell Fly

Step 1

Set an incline bench to a 45-degree incline. Holding one dumbbell in each hand, lie down on the bench and plant your feet on the floor on either side of the bench, or on the bench itself — whichever is most comfortable. Extend your elbows to hold the dumbbells directly in front of your chest with an neutral grip (palms facing in). This is your starting position.

Step 2

Inhale. While maintaining a slight bend in your elbows, lower the dumbbells outward and downward until they are in line with your chest.

Step 3

Exhale. Using the muscles in your chest, push the dumbbells upward and inward to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
