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.
One part of this exercise that can be deceptively dangerous is setting the weights down or reracking your dumbbells at the end of your set. This is often when people will injure their shoulders or stress their chest muscles. But, there is a simple way to safely set your weights down that will help you stay out of harm’s way.
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 another exercise.
