Chest flys

Targets: Pecs

Perks: Strengthens and tones the chest muscles (and improves hugging technique)! 

Move: Loop your band around a sturdy and stable object. Step one foot out in front of you and grab a handle in each hand, with your arms at chest level. Bring the bands forward so that your arms are straight (but don’t lock your elbows). Slowly return to the start position and repeat. The fly movement is similar to the movement you use when hugging someone.
