Dumbbell Incline Bench/Chest Press

 

Dumbbell Incline Bench/Chest Press is an intermediate level upper body exercise. Position the bench to a 45 degree incline. Lie on your back with your feet either on the ground or on the bench for back support. With a dumbbell in each hand, press them up and away from your body bringing them together in an upside down V range of motion (I recommend not having the dumbbells touch as it can throw your balance off as well as drop dumbbell chips into your face or eyes). Be sure to breathe out as you press the dumbbells up. Once you have reached the top of the range of motion, slowly lower the dumbbells down outside your shoulder and above your chest.
