Great Chest Workouts: How To Do The Hammer Grip Inclined Bench Dumbbell Press

An Exercise For The Chest



This exercise is fantastic for strengthening the chest muscles. And they're not so difficult to perform.

Performing the Hammer Grip Inclined Dumbbell Press

You'll need an inclined bench and a pair of dumbbells for this exercise. I recommend that you use a spotter for heavier weight lifting. Grip a dumbbell in each hand. Make sure that your palms are facing each other. Simultaneously press each weight upward. Hold for a moment than slowly lower them toward your chest. Then press them upward again. Repeat this for ten reps then rest. Do three - five sets of this exercise. The hammer grip inclined dumbbell bench press is an exercise that makes each side of the chest carry its own weight, if one side has difficulty pressing the weight up, you know that you need to devote more attention to strengthening it.

If you're a novice start out with relatively light weights but make sure to increase them in 2.5 to 5 pound increments each workout session. Remember to allow your muscles to recover and become stronger, so always allow at least 24 hours before working the same muscle group.

Enjoy your workout and keep it interesting and you'll see progress in strength and size.

That's all for this article. Look forward to more articles on my Great Chest Workouts website. Thanks for reading.
