How To Perform the Dumbbell Reverse Fly

  1. Start by standing with feet hip-width apart, holding a dumbbell in each hand.
  2. Bend your knees slightly and hinge forward at the hips until your torso is almost parallel to the floor.
  3. Let the dumbbells hang down from your shoulders, palms facing each other, maintaining a slight bend in your elbows.
  4. Engage your core and keep your back flat.
  5. Exhale and lift the dumbbells out to the sides, squeezing your shoulder blades together.
  6. Pause briefly at the top of the movement, then inhale and slowly lower the weights back to the starting position.
  7. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.
