Band high fly

Band high fly

The Band High Fly is a fantastic exercise that targets and strengthens your chest muscles, particularly the pectoralis major. This exercise is a variation of the traditional dumbbell fly, but with the added resistance of a resistance band. It provides an excellent alternative for individuals who may not have access to dumbbells or prefer working out at home. The Band High Fly primarily engages the muscles in your chest, including the pecs, deltoids, and triceps. By performing this exercise regularly, you can develop a stronger and more defined chest, improve upper body stability, and enhance your overall upper body strength. One of the great benefits of using a resistance band for the Band High Fly is that it provides continuous tension throughout the entire range of motion. This constant tension can result in improved muscle activation and development. Additionally, bands offer a versatile and portable option, allowing you to perform this exercise virtually anywhere. To maximize the effectiveness of the Band High Fly, it's important to maintain proper form and technique. Focus on keeping your core engaged, shoulders back, and chest lifted throughout the movement. Be sure to control the band as you bring your arms out to the sides, feeling a stretch in your chest muscles, and then contract your chest muscles as you return to the starting position. Remember, always listen to your body and start with an appropriate resistance that challenges you without compromising your form. Incorporate the Band High Fly into your chest workout routine and enjoy the benefits of a stronger, more sculpted chest.


  • In a standing position, grab a resistance band with both hands, palms facing downwards.
  • Step on the middle of the band with one foot and slightly bend your knees.
  • Raise your arms out to the sides, parallel to the floor, forming a 'T' shape with your body.
  • Keep a slight bend in your elbows throughout the exercise.
  • With control, bring your arms forward and across your body, crossing the band in front of you.
  • Pause for a moment and then slowly return to the starting position, maintaining tension in the band.
  • Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.

Tips & Tricks

  • Ensure proper form and technique throughout the movement to effectively target the chest and shoulder muscles.
  • Choose a resistance band that provides enough challenge for your fitness level.

  • Perform the exercise with controlled and slow movements to optimize muscle engagement.
  • Engage your core muscles to maintain stability and prevent excessive arching of the back.
  • Gradually increase the resistance or tension of the band as you become stronger and more comfortable with the exercise.
