Shoulder Dumbbell Flys

 

The dumbbell fly (also called reverse fly) is an exercise designed to work several key upper body muscle groups. This exercise strengthens and develops the three groups of deltoid muscles in the shoulders and also targets the upper back muscles.

Because of its wide range of motion, this is an excellent exercise for strengthening both the upper back and shoulder muscles. It also does a good job of stabilizing the shoulder blades for better spine support and improved posture.

The triceps also provide a supporting role to keep your form consistent so the exercise trains the muscles correctly and doesn't injure your shoulders.
