Unilateral Standing Flye with Rotation, Tube

by Anthony Carey, MA

Description

The unilateral flye with standing rotation using tubing allows us to really maximize the leverage that the body can create with full extension of the arm. As you step with your left foot, bring the left arm first, then the right arm around creating a big torque. This requires the anterior oblique system to work to generate that motion against the resistance of the tubing. If you want to progress this exercise, increase the overall tempo, which means you have to respond or react to the tension that's created by the tubing faster and be able to decelerate as you return, bringing the feet back to the start position.
