    Muscles worked: Chest

    Instructions:
    Grasp a set of dumbbells and sit down at the edge of a flat bench with the weights resting on their ends on your knees. Lean backwards and lie flat on your back and at the same time move the dumbbells back to your shoulders. Press the dumbbells up straight up above your shoulders with your palms facing towards your feet. This is your starting position. Next, lower the weights downward towards the sides of your chest as low as you can go comfortably. With control press the weights back up to the top of the exercise. Repeat for the number of reps assigned.
    Dont's:
    Don't jerk the weight up. Use a slow controlled movement. Don't bounce the weight as you lower them . Use control, this will prevent injuries. Don't arch your back and push your hips up during the movement.

    Alternate exercises: Barbell bench press
