10 Of The Best Chest Exercises For Women

6. Dumbbell Flyes are one of the best chest exercises for women

These will help stretch and widen your chest. Similar to your dumbbell bench press, flyes use a different angle and arm placement to change the focus of the movement.

How to do them: Start on your back with the weights at arm’s length directly above your chest. While holding the weights up and together spread your elbows until your arms are curved, imagine hugging a large tree trunk or barrel and maintain your arms in this position as you allow the dumbbells to be lowered to the sides of the chest. Pause and stretch when they reach the bottom and squeeze and stretch when at the top. This movement can be repeated 10 – 12 times.
