Dumbbell Press

Starting Position: Sit on a flat bench with a dumbbell in each hand. Move to the lying down position as you move the dumbbells above your chest. Your feet should be firmly planted on the ground.

Performing the Exercise: Lower the dumbbells as you bend your elbows to create a 90 degree angle and your upper arms are parallel to the ground. Press the weights up, extending your arms above your chest. Keep the weights balanced and move them at the same time in the same motion.

What not to do

  • Do not lift your feet up from the ground


  • Keep your bottom on the bench
  • A slight arch in your back is ok
  • Lift the dumbbells in a controlled motion, do not let one arm move more than the other one
