Resistance Band Reverse Fly

› Resistance Band Reverse Fly

The resistance band reverse fly is a great upper back workout.

The muscle that this exercise focus on are the shoulders and upper back muscles.

The great part of this workout is that it strengthens a lot of other muscles.

The muscle that this exercise targets are the posterior deltoid, rhomboid and the middle trapezius muscle. 

The trapezius is one of the major back muscle. This muscle is divided into three sections which are the upper, middle and lower. 

The delts or the correct name is called deltoid is the rounded triangle shaped muscle located at the top part of your shoulder.

So this exercise is great to work all the muscle that I just mention above.
