Chest Press - Free Weight
Other types of Chest Press: Machine Resistance Tube Stability Ball
Select two dumbbells then lay down on a bench. Press your back flat against the bench and pull your abdominals into your lower back to stabilize your core.
Press the dumbbells slowly away from your chest until your arms are straight. Pause, then slowly bend your arms to a 90 degree bend.
Pectoralis major, Anterior deltoids, Triceps brachii
TIP: Keep your elbows in front of your body with your ribs closed, not allowing your back to arch off the bench.
Variations for Chest Press
The Smith bar acts as a spotter so that you do not have to have a partner while lifting heavy weight.
Very similar to chest press with dumbbells, but your stability muscles will help each other since they are holding onto the same bar instead of independent dumbbells.
