Muscle Target
  • The Chest Flys will target the chest (Pectoralis Major) and the shoulder muscles (Anterior Deltoid and Coracobrachialis) in reason because the motion of this exercise is horizontal adductor just like the forehand tennis swing.
  • This exercise will help the performance of the swing because this exercise will build up muscle in the proper places of what is used during the forehand swing.
  • When the muscle builds up, it will help increase the force of the tennis ball being hit, along with decrease of injury to the shoulder muscle.
