CLOSE-GRIP DB BENCH PRESS

Exercise Instructions:

  1. Lie flat on a bench with a dumbbell in each hand.
  2. Unlike a regular BENCH PRESS, here we want to keep our elbows tight to our sides (like a T-Rex) and press those dumbbells straight up by squeezing your triceps HARD.
  3. Notice how I don’t like to drop my elbows below a 90* angle? That’s because I don’t want my shoulders and pecs to assist too much.

Muscles Worked:

Triceps, chest, shoulders.
