How to do dumbbell flyes (Poliquin flyes)

Training a client with dumbbell flyes. I learned how to do dumbbell flyes like this from legendary strength coach Charles Poliquin.

You start with a slight bend at your elbows and a pronated grip (palms facing forward) and come down to where the elbows are in line with the ears. You then turn your palms up in the bottom position. This gives you a good stretch in the pecs. You then come back rotating your elbows so that your palms are facing forward again at the top. You don’t need to go all the way to the top so that the dumbbells touch because there isn’t much tension on the muscles in the top position.

My client Justin has been doing dumbbell flyes for years and never felt the muscles work as much as he did doing them this way. I also find this type of flye much easier to coach clients on. The traditional flye's I tended to have found them difficult to get clients to perform them in proper form as the way many would do it I felt put a lot of strain on the shoulder and rotator cuff. I recommend trying this way out in your next chest workout. #chestworkout#dumbbellworkout #dumbbellflyes #dumbbellflys #pecs #lasvegas#personaltrainer #strengthtraining #strengthcoach #fitness #fitnesstrainer#exercise #exercisetips #workouttips #workout #muscle #gym
