    Default Chest Press / Fly

    When I perform these, I only feel it near my shoulder, I don't always feel it directly in my chest, but the pectoral muscle becomes fatigued so I know something is being worked. During flys my left pectoral is weaker, however today I had strain in my bicep? I moved onto a pec dec machine, and it felt the same, but this time the strain was from my shoulder / very top outer part of the pectoral. Is this the usual feeling?

    The insertion of the Pec's is on the humerous (upper arm) and is involved in bringing the arm across the chest.

    Make sure that you are not using your bicep at all. You should be lying on the bench with a "relaxed elbow" meaning the arm is not totally straight. Make sure that when performing the exercises that the starting position of the elbow is not moved, some people who are weight orientated will bend the elbows and end up with the fly exercise looking more like a chest press.
