Tip #42: Improve Your Bent Over Reverse Flyes With This Form Tip

Written by Steve

If you want to save your elbows and shoulders some wear and tear, try making this form adjustment on bent over reverse flyes.

Instead of performing this dumbbell movement using straight, or nearly straight arms, try keeping your forearm about 120 degrees away from your arms. With your arm in this position, instead of trying to drive the dumbbells back, focus on driving your elbows back. This will allow for a more intense contraction. You should feel not only your rear delts engaging, but also possibly your lats and rhomboids.

These 2 minor form adjustments will allow for better leverage and performance, allowing for more rear delt stimulation, while also saving your elbows and shoulders.
