Dumbbell Flat Bench

Muscle Groups Worked:


How to Perform This Exericse:

1) Start with two dumbbells in each hand, with your elbows perpendicular to your body.

2) With your chest expanded outward and the small of your back firmly on the bench lower each dumbbell to your shoulders while keeping your elbows perpendicular to your body.

3) Without touching your chest, or minimally touching it, raise the dumbbells upward until you lock your arms, bringing the dumbbells together is not necessary.

Remember to keep your arms perpendicular (A 90 degree angle) to your chest.  Keep your chest expanded throughout the motion to ensure targeting your pectoralis major and minor muscles.  If you do not do this, you will be also hitting your delts.  Do not take your butt or the small of your back off the bench, this may cause harm, and will only work separate muscles than you wish to work out.
