TRX Chest Flyes are a great exercise for the chest muscles. Like push ups, it is a superior exercise because anytime you are moving your body instead of moving an object in your hands, you are using more muscle and using more energy. For this reason, the TRX Chest Fly is superior to dumbbell chest flyes. For example, performing a dumbbell chest fly doesn’t use as much muscle because your torso is supported by a bench during the exercise. The reason TRX Chest Flyes are superior is because the handles of the TRX system also move freely. This requires even more muscles to activate in order to stabilize you. Although they require the TRX system, the equipment is light and portable so they can also be done anywhere.
