DB POWER 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. Power one of the dumbbells up, and control the weight as it lowers to your chest.
  4. Alternate to the other arm for the next rep.
  5. Your lats will act as “brakes” to help you control the weights. Resist the urge to let the non-working arm rest the dumbbell on your shoulders.

Muscles Worked:

Chest, shoulders, triceps.
