    chest fly-press


    I was looking at some routine and it called for dumbbell fly-presses. I have seen these before but I do not remember the range of motion on these. The article says it starts out as a fly in the bottom position and rotate to a press at the top. Anybody know exactly how these work?

    i would imagine that you bring the DB's together at the bottom of a fly movement and press up with the DB's together. that hurts my rotator cuffs just typing that......

    I'd rather superset some DB presses with some flyes than do that. Sounds like an exercise a high schooler would have made up...

    If its the same routine as the one at tnation, its a fly then at the peak contraction your lower down into a press, then a fly and so on.

    I tried it, but obviously you are going to be able to press way more than you can fly.

    yea guys if its from the nation routine of the button popping pecs or watever that routine looks really easy?

    i did my wendler routine 3 x 3 then did
    Decline press 3 x 6 with 3 45s per side
    Incline Rest pause set of 8
    Flyes Press 2 x 8-10 but i did flyes then when i hit 8-10 i did dumbell bench with the same weight.

    i didnt do the crazy 5 sets of pec dec chest was too beat.. the routine seems dumb tho because u hve to push the weight on flyes every week?
