Platform Incline Dumbbell Flye

by Keli Roberts

Description

This next exercise progression trains the chest, the shoulders, and the triceps, but also trains the hips, back, core, and hamstrings. Begin on the platform side of the BOSU balance trainer, contracting with your abs to keep the bottom of the platform down. Perform a one arm flye. Come out to the side as you inhale, exhale and bring it back up to the start position. To progress, lift your hips up off the balance trainer, off the platform really high, and from there perform that flye. Engage your abs otherwise the BOSU will tilt. For the third and final progression, a really challenging exercise, perform the one arm flye with your feet together, a narrower base of support. As you come down really engage and bring it back up. Make sure you get both sides of the body evenly with 8 to 12 repetitions. You can do a couple of sets.
