Resistance Band Chest Fly

To do Chest Flyes with a band, hook the band around a piece of furniture or in a doorway. Grab a handle in each hand and face away from the anchor point. Walk away from the anchor point so there is tension in the band and set up in a staggered stance.

Then spread your arms out wide. Keep your elbows soft. Then, bring your arms forward and your hands together as if hugging a tree.

You do not want to really bend at the elbows so much as pull your arms together. Once you’ve brought your palms close together, open your arms back, staying in control of the movement so that the band doesn’t jerk you back.

Repeat, pulling your arms back together. Try not to lean forward or bend a ton at the elbows as you do the flyes.

Beginners may want to start with a lighter band or stay closer to the anchor point.
