Get Lifted: Lying Pec Fly

Looking to tone up that area by your armpit, between your chest and your arm? You know the place I'm talking about. Give this move a try. You'll feel it in your pecs, biceps, and shoulders.

  • Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the ground. Engage your abs so your lower back is pressing into the floor. Hold a set of dumbbells and straighten your arms out in T-position with your palms facing the ceiling.
  • Keeping your arms straight without locking your elbows, inhale to prepare, and then exhale as you lift your hands until they are in line with your shoulders.
  • Inhale and slowly lower your arms back to the ground, but stop about an inch above the floor. That completes one rep.
  • Do two to three sets of 12 to 15 reps.
