in Chest Exercise
Main Muscle Worked: Chest
Hold a dumbbell in each hand.
Lie down on a flat bench and let the dumbbells rest on top of your thighs. Your palms should be facing each other.
Raise the dumbbells upward with the help of your thighs. Make sure to lift the dumbbells one at a time so you can hold them in front of you at shoulder-width.
Lift the dumbbells up like you are pressing them. Stop and hold just before you lock out. This will be your starting position.
Lower your arms out at both sides in a wide arc with your elbows slightly bent. This will help prevent stress and injury at the biceps tendon. Continue doing this until you feel a stretch on your chest. Inhale as your execute this movement and keep the arms stationary. Make sure that only the shoulder joint should move.
Bring back your arms to the starting position as you contract your chest muscles and exhale.
Pause for a second at the contracted position.
Repeat until the recommended amount of repetitions is achieved.
