hey all, i just finished a killer chest workout, and as part of my 5x5 i did dumbbell flys with 75 pounders for five slow reps.
i've always been a fan of flys, and always include strict flys in my routine. i do my flys super strict and slow, with the elbows bent slightly, but unmoving during the motion.
in arnolds encyclopedia he as a few illustrations of himself and jusop wilkosz flying with eighty pounders. so arnold flyed with eightys, but bench pressed 400+.
my question is: is it possible to do flys too heavy in contrast to your bench press, any of you have any experience with that? for instance, my fly weight is 75 after warmup, and my bench press is with just 100lb dumbbells after warmup.
so my fly/press ratio is 3/8, while arnolds would be 1/5!!!
should i even be worrying about this, or what do you guys think?
