Close-Grip Push-Up off of a Dumbbell - Exercise Guide

Step 1

Place a dumbbell in an upright position on the floor.

Step 2

Do a pushup position on the floor with the dumbbell parallel with your chest.

Step 3

Place your hands on the upright dumbbell. Keep your upper body steady and arms straight during this movement. You may adjust the position of your feet to find your balance. Support your weight with your toes and hands. This is your starting position.

Step 4

Inhale as you slowly lower your body by bending your elbows to your sides. Keep your body straight and don’t let your hips rise or sag as you do this. Continue for as far as you can.

Step 5

Once you’re at the bottom of your movement, pause for a moment then push yourself back up by extending your elbows. Exhale as you do this. Continue until you’re back to your starting position.

Step 6

Repeat until the recommended amount of repetitions is achieved.
