The dumbbell bench press and barbell bench press are similar in a lot of ways except the equipment involved, of course! There are lots of things that you need to keep in mind while doing any weight training exercise. You need to breathe right, use the right form and technique and most importantly, challenge yourself. If you have mastered the 15-pound dumbbell bench press, go for 20 pounds. But to lift heavier weights, you need to adopt the right form and technique so you don’t injure yourself. You need to hold the dumbbells properly and make sure that your arms move in a straight line and not diagonally while lifting the dumbbells.
In this videos, Kaizzad Capadia, fitness trainer and co-founder of K11 Fitness Academy, shows you exactly how to do a dumbbell bench press. If you think that it’s a very simple exercise to do, you better watch this and we bet you’ll be surprised. Not only does he explain the right way of doing a dumbbell bench press, but he also shows you the wrong way of doing it. He also explains what each movement or each position does to your body. ‘You need to derive your strength from your legs. Even though a bench press is said to be an upper body exercise, you must use your entire body to lift weights,’ explains Kaizzad. So watch, learn and get strong.
