Muscles & Joint Actions
When pulling extended arms to meet each other in front of the body from a cross position, as in Flys, arms move from the sides to the front of the body.The activation of the fibres of the major pectoral is done in a gradual manner, this means that when arms are extended the emphasis is done by the exterior pectoral (next to shoulders) and when arms join the emphasis is located on the fibres near the center of the chest.
