Dumbbell Floor Press

Step 1

Holding a dumbbell in each hand, start by lying flat on your back on a yoga mat. Bend your knees and position your feet firmly on the mat, ensuring that they are hip-width apart, or extend them along the mat – whichever is more comfortable. Extend your elbows to hold the dumbbells directly in front of your chest with an overhand grip (palms facing away from you), hands slightly wider than your shoulders. This is your starting position.

Step 2

Inhale. Bend your elbows outwards to lower the dumbbells towards you until your elbows lightly touch the floor.

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.
