How To Dumbbell Press Properly
- To set-up, grasp two dumbbells and set them over your knees as you sit on a bench.
- Keeping the dumbbells on your lower thighs, roll back onto the bench setting your torso into a safe pressing position with your chest high and shoulders pulled back and down.
- Set your feet in a position that puts your knee lower than your hips and maintain the same tightness as a bench press.
- Keeping the dumbbells directly over your elbows, pull them down towards the outside of your lower chest, before press them up and back over your shoulders while flaring your elbows out.
- As you lower the dumbbells, externally rotate your hands to a neutral position to protect your shoulder and relax them back into a linear position as you press.
