A simple exercise like fly jacks actually has the capacity to reap the best results, but only when you do it right. Here are some points to remember, while performing it:
Keep your body tight
You need to keep your arms, legs, glutes, back, chest, and core tight. This will help to power your muscles. More tightness will lead to better sculpting of the muscles, and faster weight loss.
Observe your form
If you follow the above rule, there are very few chances of you losing your form. But at times when you speed up, you also tend to lose your form. This leads to a fall, which can sprain your leg/ankle. Or you may not get effective results.
Go for a full range of motion
Doing anything half-heartedly will give you that kind of result. And we don’t want that right? So make sure that your legs and arms are not bent at any point in time. Also, when you bring your arms in front, ensure that they are straight and while moving them back and forth, you put some extra pressure to awaken your chest and upper back muscles.
Why are fly jacks as good as push-ups?
We know you literally hate doing push-ups, especially those of you who squeal and shout to reach the 100-mark. Now that means you need an alternative that can be simple but has a similar effect. You know why we are singing sweet songs for fly jacks.
Fly jacks literally target every muscle in your chest and upper back. So, it won’t be wrong to call it a compound exercise. Another thing is that due to its front and back movement it also helps you reduce that stubborn armpit fat, which push-ups also promise to do.

But here is the catch which makes fly jacks even better than push-ups and i.e. they also work on your sides, glutes, and legs. In push-ups, these muscles are targeted in a very minor way, but with fly jacks, they fall under the major muscle target group due to the movement of your feet.
So it won’t be entirely wrong to call dibs on fly jacks.
