Dumbbell Bench Press
How to: Dumbbell Bench Press
Primary Muscles Used:Chest, Pecs, Triceps
Exercise Families:Horizontal Push
- Holding one dumbbell in each hand with an overhand grip (palms facing away from your body), lie down on a bench and plant your feet on the floor on either side of the bench, or on the bench itself — whichever is most comfortable. Extend your elbows to hold the dumbbells directly in front of your chest. This is your starting position.
- Inhale. Bend your elbows outwards to lower the dumbbells towards your chest until your arms form two 90-degree angles, like an inverted push-up.
- Exhale. Extend your elbows and push the dumbbells away from your chest to return to the starting position. Repeat for the specified number of repetitions.
