Lower with arms together backwards and when dumbbells are at head level, separate and take them to the horizontal (making a semicircle) to your hips.

Basic Muscles Explanation
In dumbbells flys the muscles involved are the pectoralis major in the first place of importance, and the anterior deltoids that acts as a secondary muscle. The pectoralis major is a great muscle that cover the whole chest. It originates from the frontal margin or edge of the clavicle and runs down the sternum. We must emphasize the fact that in this type of exercises there is a noticeable increment of the anterior margin or edge of the pectoralis major.
Muscles & Joint Actions
Arms twists around the body make weight move in a circular motion activating the major pectoral in all its parts. This is a complete exercise, but could cause injury to the shoulder joints.
Flys are used in fitness to develope the chest and are important in all the actions that involve twisting and moving the arms forward, as in boxing or swimming. This type of movement is also important in raquet sports, and in baseball when pitching with one hand.
