The "flying" exercise in strength training helps develop the chest muscles. In the style of the butterfly, the movement is carried out lying down, so that the spine rests securely on a bench and prevents problems in the back area. Since this exercise is done exclusively with dumbbells, it requires a high degree of movement coordination and certain training experience. The flyers training exercise is used to define the chest muscles.

In the initial situation of the flyer, the athlete lies on a bench with his legs bent. The back of the head lies flat on the bench. The dumbbells are held in front of the body with straight arms. In the execution of the movement, the extended arms are led downwards to the sides, but not further than body height. The training weight and the number of repetitions depend on the training status and the training goal.
In order to prevent the risk of shoulder injuries, the flies can be completed on the cable pulley. An expander can be used to achieve a continuous increase in resistance. The movement execution, however, remains the same.
