This month on Trainer Tip Tuesday we will be discussing considerations when you are doing the dumbbell chest press for your pecs. This is one of the most common exercises that can be seen in almost any gym. However, there are some important considerations you need to take to make sure it is done safely and effectively.
The dumbbell chest press is an exercise that almost everyone has done or seen done at some point. While it seems like a very straightforward exercise, there are some key components that need to be kept in mind to ensure that your spine, shoulders, and low back all remain safe while working your chest muscles.
When setting yourself up for this exercise, many people just lie down on the bench without giving it much thought. However, this can be the exact thing that starts to cause issues, especially for the low back and spine.
There are some simple changes you can make to how you are positioned on the bench to help protect your spine. We show you exactly what they are in this week’s video.
Check out all of the details in this week’s episode of Trainer Tip Tuesday, and be sure to tune back in next week as we discuss more considerations when doing dumbbell chest press for your pecs.
