    Question Does dumbbell fly count for push/pull ratio?

    I am trying to keep a balanced push/pull ratio in my routine. I was thinking if dumbbell chest flys count as a push exercise?

    So if one day I do:
    Bench press
    Lateral raises

    and another day:
    OHP
    chest fly

    then will that be more push dominant? I mean chest fly is done in a different direction than bench or OHP. I know chest fly still hits front delts hard.

    I could make a case for either push or pull, though I think to keep it simple just keep it on push.

    I would throw in some Arnold presses, upright rows and dumb bell pullovers. But I'm just a scrawny little 55 year old guy as you can see.

    Push movements have the weight moving away from the core of your body. Pulls, take the weight toward your core (pretty much).

    Flyes take the weight and push it away from your body. Pecs pull your arm across your body. With weight in your hands, it serves to move the load away from the core of the body.

    --The proper plural form of the Latin adjective biceps is bicipites, a form not in general English use. Instead, biceps is used in both singular and plural (i.e., when referring to both arms). The form bicep [sic], although common even in professional contexts, is considered incorrect. (from Wikipedia)
