How To Perform Exercise

The dumbbell decine bench press targets your lower chest and requires more stability in your muscles more than the standard dumbbell bench press.

Steps :

1.) Start off lying on a decline bench so that your head is lower than your feet and having a grip on a pair of dumbbells with an overhand grip with your palms facing towards your feet.

2.) Hold the dumbbells directly above your chest so that their inner edges are touching.

2.) Lift the dumbbells up and hold them directly above your chest so that they are touching.

3.) Slowly lower the weights until they are inline with the top of your chest, squeezing your muscles and hold for a count.

4.) Then, raise them straight up to the starting position.

Tips :

1.) It is important during the dumbbell bench press to focus on stabilizing your muscles.

2.) Alternate between the dumbbell and barbell versions of this exercise get benefits from both.
