Band low fly

Band low fly

The Band Low Fly is a highly effective exercise that targets and strengthens your chest muscles. This exercise primarily focuses on the pectoralis major, the large muscle group located in the chest region. By incorporating resistance bands into the movement, you can add an extra challenge to your workout routine. The Band Low Fly is an ideal exercise for those looking to tone and sculpt their chest muscles. It helps in improving the stability and strength of your upper body, which can be beneficial for daily activities and overall fitness. The movement involves keeping your arms extended out to the sides, parallel to the floor, as you squeeze your chest muscles to bring your arms closer together. To perform the Band Low Fly, you will need an exercise band that suits your fitness level. It's important to choose a resistance band that provides enough tension while allowing you to maintain proper form throughout the exercise. This will help you achieve the desired results without risking injury. Incorporating the Band Low Fly into your workout routine can help you develop a stronger and more defined chest. As with any exercise, it's recommended to start with lighter resistance bands and gradually progress to heavier ones as your strength improves. Remember to focus on maintaining proper form, control your movements, and engage your chest muscles throughout the exercise for maximum benefit. Keep challenging yourself and enjoy the rewards of a stronger, more sculpted upper body.


  • Start by attaching a resistance band to a stationary object at waist height.
  • Stand facing away from the stationary object and hold the resistance band handles in each hand with your arms extended in front of you.
  • Step forward to create tension on the band, keeping your feet shoulder-width apart.
  • Keep your core engaged and maintain a slight bend in your knees throughout the exercise.
  • With control, slowly bring your arms out to the sides, keeping them parallel to the floor.
  • Squeeze your shoulder blades together as you bring your arms back, feeling the contraction in your chest muscles.
  • Pause briefly at the end of the movement, making sure to maintain tension on the band.
  • Slowly reverse the movement and bring your arms back to the starting position.
  • Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.
