Back Flyes with Exercise Band

This is an exercise for shoulder, middle back and triceps strengthening.


  1. Place an exercise band around a post or machine at mid chest height.
  2. Stand with your feet shoulder width apart, abs drawn in and knees slightly bent.
  3. Stand back from the post so there is tension in the band, grasping the band with your arms extended in front of you and a slight bend in your elbows; this is your starting position.
  4. Bring your arms back in a controlled motion till they are parallel at your sides and in line with your shoulders.
  5. Slowly return your arms to the starting position in front of your chest.
  6. Repeat.


Maintain a good upright posture at all times during this exercise ensuring you do not arch your back.
