Standing chest flies. Simply get yourself into a nice pelvis position.

It's really important here that we get your glute and your bum muscles back and your knees bent. And from there, we really want to be thinking about our pelvis being nice, in a nice, very strong, solid position.

From there, we simply get the weight, elbows slightly bent as if we were gripping a barrel, and we take the weight up. And it's simply a nice, slow, controlled fashion, really focusing on a strong pelvis position, really using your legs, firing them up and the arms simply come up.

Keep your head down. You wanna be thinking about the major back muscles contracting and pulling the weights up, pulling the weights up. Pick a number where you can go 10 to 15 reps easily, repeatable.
