DUMBBELL BENCH PRESS

Are you looking to improve your Upper body strength?
If so, then the Dumbbell Bench Press is the exercise for you!

The Dumbbell Bench Press should be a fundamental part of any good upper body workout. It is also a fantastic option to include in any fat loss, or strength based session.

This exercise helps to shape, and strengthen many muscles, not only the Pectorals (Chest), but also the Triceps in the back of the arms, and the Deltoids in the shoulder.
1. Lie down on a flat bench with a dumbbell in each hand. Hold the dumbbells up at arms length shoulder width apart and the palms facing forwards.
2. Steadily lower the dumbbells, widening the elbows as you do this until a 90 degree angle is created at the elbow. Be sure to maintain full control of the dumbbells at all times. Take a deep breath IN throughout the movement.
3. Then, while slowly and forcefully breathing out, extend the arms and push towards the ceiling using your chest to push the dumbbells up. Squeeze your chest and hold for a second before then lowering into your next rep.
