DB BENCH PRESS

Exercise Instructions:

  1. Set your shoulders to the correct position by squeezing your shoulder blades together against the bench.
  2. Set your midsection to the correct position by squeezing your glutes and planting your feet firmly.
  3. Keep the weights at chest level.
  4. Press the dumbbells up by squeezing your pecs HARD, and control them on the way down.
  5. I sometimes like to change from an overhand-grip to more of a diagonal-grip position, one of the benefits of using dumbbells over barbells, as it is less stressful on the forearms.

Muscles Worked:

Chest, shoulders, triceps.
