what is incline dumbell fly

how do i do skullcrushers? and what is incline dumbell fly?

im new and have just started `cashmans routine` and im unfamiliar with some of the
terms can anyone please explain how i go about the 2 techniques above, this is todays sets from the plan

- Chest/Tri
5 Min warm-up
Dumbell Flat Bench - 4 sets 6-8 reps
Weighted Dips For Chest - 4 sets 6-8 reps (last set to failure)
Incline Dumbell Fly- 4 sets 6-8 reps (last set to failure) (Lay so head is at the top of the bench)
Skull Crushers - 3 sets 6-8 reps (or close grip bench press)
overhead cable presses 3 sets 6-8 reps (last set to fail) (or close grip bench presses)


i assume the overhead cable presses are standing with back to cable put hands over behind head and pull the cable then extend forearms to bring triceps into it?

and what does a close bench press look like? same as seated bench press or diff machine altogether?

dumbell chest press 47.5kg each hand
shoulder press dumbell 35kg each hand
olympic bar squats 155kg
olympic bar deadlift 165kg
(not max`s just what i train with)

    Incline Dumbell flye means trouble to me. This is how I bust my shoulder. Has been knackered since christmas. Doc is not sure what is wrong. Either torn tendon or a joint seperation. I had to get a steroid injection to help it, and i'am currently awaiting a ultra sound scan and phsyio. It has not stopped my training as the doc said it is ok to carry on aslong as it does not cause me pain.

    I also find them hard on the shoulders.Doing them flat seems to take the pressure off the shoulders a bit.Can use a bit more weight as well.You got a steroid injection from your doctor eh Archie?You should have asked him to throw in some d-bol as well.Ha ha.
