How to do the Dumbbell Flat Bench Chest Press
This compound dumbbell flat chest press can be performed lying supine on a bench with your feet firmly on the floor and your arms holding dumbbells out to the side with a 90 degree bend in your elbow. With your arms all the way 'down', bring the weight up exhaling on the exertion (upwards) until you have just about locked your elbows out (don't lock them out though). Now slowly lower them to the starting position as shown.
