Purpose of Exercise:



    • Lie on a bench holding dumbbells at arm’s length above you, palms facing one another.
    • Lower the weights out and down to either side in a wide arc as far as you can, feeling the pectoral muscles stretch to their maximum.

The palms should remain facing each other throughout the movement. Bend the arms slightly as you do the movement to reduce the stress on the elbows. Bring the weights to a complete stop at a point lower than the bench, your pectorals (chest muscles) stretched as much as possible. Lift them back up along the same wide arc, as if giving somebody a big bear hug, rather than coming in and pressing the weights up, upto the starting position. Contract the pectorals further, giving a little extra flex to make the muscle work that much harder.
