Virtual Fitness: How To Do A Dumbbell Chest Press

Dumbbell Chest Press

The Dumbbell Chest Press is a strength training exercise that works the chest, front deltoids and triceps. The model in the video is working on an adjustable bench.
INSTRUCTIONS: The exercise is performed either on the floor, or an adjustable bench, in a supine position. Bend your knees at right angles, and place both feet on the floor, or on the bench, hip width. Exhale and press weights up until elbows are straight. Wrists are stacked over the elbows. Inhale and lower weights until elbows are in line with shoulders. Move slowly throughout the exercise.
Back Position: To protect your back, maintain a neutral spine. The neutral spine position is the halfway distance between flattening and overarching your low back.
EXERCISE DOs and DONTs – As with all exercise programs, when using exercise videos that appear on this site, you need to use common sense. If your muscles are weak, either do the modifications, or don’t attempt this exercise if it’s too difficult for you. When starting an exercise program, be sure to discuss your plans with your healthcare provider
