How to do it

This is a variation of the bench press exercise that utilizes dumbbells in order to help build a strong upper chest.

Steps :

1.) Start off by setting up a bench on a 30 degree incline and then place dumbbells by your feet.

2.) Take the dumbbells and bring them to the starting position which is just above your chest, keeping your elbows bent so that your forearms are facing upward.

3.) Then push the dumbbells up in a straight motion, focusing on squeezing your chest and targeting those muscles on the motion upward.

4.) Raise the dumbbells up as high as you can without locking your elbows and hold for a count.

5.) Return back down slowly to the starting position and repeat for as many reps and sets as desired.

Tips :

1.) It is important to use a weight that you can manage so that you are able to get into the starting position easier for this exercise.

2.) You should have a spotter to help you with this exercise.
