Top 5 Pec Exercises : 2. Dumbbell Bench Press

Top 5 Pec Exercises : 2. Dumbbell Bench Press

2. Dumbbell Bench Press :

This is considered as one of the core pec exercises and is a very good way of ensuring that you do not have any strength imbalance between the opposing sides of your body. The dumbbell bench press is also advisable because it promotes the natural functions of your pectoral muscles by focusing on moving the weights towards the centre of your body.

The necessary first step is to find a bench that allows you to sit and lie comfortably with both feet touching the floor. Once you've found the ideal bench, grab a dumbbell in each hand and then stand about six inches in front of the bench.

Slowly move into a sitting position on the bench while letting the flat side of each dumbbell rest on your thighs. Now, lie back slowly and make sure that your butt, upper back, and head touch the bench all throughout the exercise.

Position the dumbbells at shoulder height, just slightly touching your shoulders and then push up until your elbows are straight. Lower the weights slowly back to shoulder height to complete a rep. You can choose to do a flat, incline, or decline dumbbell bench press.
