Dumbbell Chest Press with Neutral Grip

Step 1

Holding one dumbbell in each hand with a neutral grip (palms facing inwards), 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.

Step 2

Inhale. Bend your elbows to lower the dumbbells towards your chest, ensuring that your elbows remain in close contact with the sides of your body.

Step 3

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.
