Dumbbell Reverse Fly

Reverse dumbbell flyes strengthen the posterior shoulder and upper back. Strength and development in the rear shoulders and thoracic spinal muscles improve upper body posture, function, and movement.

Hold a dumbbell in each hand with palms facing your body, and your knees slightly bent. Keeping your back flat, bend forward at the hip joint.

Exhale and slowly raise the dumbbells up, forward and out to the sides until your arms are almost level with the shoulders, maintaining a slight bend in the elbows and squeezing your shoulder blades together.

Inhale and slowly lower the dumbbells back to your starting position. Repeat.

I never tried that. I’ll give it a go.


As always, I give my 2 cents on all your workouts (or at least try to) lol
I have done this workout as well with dumbbells and i like it personally, the back is a muscle we shouldn’t take advantage of, neither the shoulders. I think I have used 20lb dumbbells for this exercise. I will have to check my notes, but after a good set of reps, you can feel the fire, and you just keep going!
