Workout Notes:

Ever wonder what the difference is between a press and a fly? 

  • It has to do with forearm position during a multi-joint DB or cable/band movement. More specifically the slope of the forearm, or angle at the elbow joint.  
     
  • At the bottom of the movement, while lying on your back with arms abducted (horizontally and laterally), if your wrists are stacked directly above the elbows and there is a 90 deg (or smaller) angle at the elbow joint (top), you are pressing.
     
  • At the bottom of the movement, while you are lying on your back, if your wrists are aligned outside of the elbows (arms abducted horizontally and laterally), and the angle at the elbow joint is greater than 90 degrees your doing a fly. (bottom)
     
  • To make it simpler, look for the slope of the forearm. Stacked straight up or sloped in = pressing. Sloped out = fly.
