Thread: incline fly's
02-14-2005, 12:23 PM #1
Anyone have any feelings on doing incline fly's? A friend of mine who plays college football got me doing them and i definitly like the feel they give but I wanted to hear what some of you guys think about them. Just for clarification this is obviously a freeweight exercise and the way i do them is I turn my hand inward (pinky to pinky) when i bring the weights together.

Just bring them together and flex. Great finishing excercise.

It's a staple in my complex chest routine, love it.

I like them....but I also vary the degree of the bench...hitting it from different angles just to keep things interesting.

My shoulder has been feeling pretty good lately, I may try and start the incline flies again!

Why pinky-to-pinky? Why not hands opposed? Does it seem to hit the pecs harder that way? I've done them before with hands opposed. Always felt like an anterior delt exercise to me.

I did chest on Monday and shoulders and arms yesterday.
So, in between sets I got on the incline and went through the motion with pinkies coming together at the end. Just from the slight muscle soreness, I was able to really feel the difference. I started wide with forearms and upper arms almost parallel, then went up in a big hugging motion, twisting my hands as I came up to the top, then touched sides of my hands like a karate chop. Oh man! Such a pec rush. With thumbs together or even hands opposed, it's just an anteirior deltoid work out. Pinkies together for me from now on.

This is one of those exercises that if you can manage to go heavy and keep great form, you will throw mass onto your upper pecs and front delts like no other. I occasionally do them i lieu of incline press every third week or so, just to be fresh enough to throw up 70's or 80's. When i do them after incline, i typically only go up to 60 at the heaviest.

I love em...
I've found low-incline (flyes) personally more effective than those at a higher incline...anyone else find this too?

Yeah, you have to go like 30º or so because any steeper than that and the movement requires to much anterior deltoid.
Dude-man, my anterior delts dwarf my upper pecs. Should I try supper setting these flies with DB incline presses? Or stick to doing these at the end of chest training?
Until now I've been going 3x8 incline DB press, 3x8 DB Flat press, Decline DB press, then 3x8 pull overs on heavy days. 4-5X12 on all the above plus pec deck on light days.
