Lying Chest Flies

2. Lying Chest Flies

Holding light dumbbells (about 5 pounds) in each hand, lie on the ground with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Raise your arms (slightly bent) so the weights are high above your chest. Slowly lower the dumbbells out to the sides so they're in line with your shoulders but not resting on the floor. Then gradually raise them back to starting position.

Tip: Don't have dumbbells? Large, unopened soup cans work just as well.
