Body Wedge Chest Exercises

1. Lie down with your head at the big part of the wedge. Grab free weights that are light yet heavy enough to give you a workout. Have your arms straight to your sides, but do not lock your elbows. Exhale as you bring the free weights close together over your chest and inhale as you bring them to starting position. This is the butterfly or fly exercise. Do five sets of ten repetitions.

2. Repeat [1.] with your palms facing away from you.

3. Repeat [1.] starting with your elbows bent and straightening your arms up at each repetition without locking your elbows.
