Dumbbell Incline Bench Press

« BACK

Perform a bench press by evenly lowering the weights until they are even with (touch) your outer chest. Drive the weights up until your arms are fully extended.

By using dumbbells instead of a bar, you will force your limbs to work independently and promote strength and muscular balance. Keep in mind that because of this new instability and limb independence, the loads will feel heavier. In other words, if you can bench-press 300 pounds for a 1-rep maximum, you will not be able to perform a 1-rep maximum with 150-pound dumbbells.
