What does "flesh" imply?

Hebrews 5:7 (ESV)

7 In the days of his flesh, Jesus offered up prayers and supplications, with loud cries and tears, to him who was able to save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverence.

Flesh implies the weakness of Jesus’ human body as son of Adam (see Genesis 6:3) and his ability to be tempted.1,2
