Take Full Advantage of Dumbbells
The easiest way see the difference between dumbbell exercises and barbell exercises is with the chest press. It’s the same general motion, pressing the weight straight up over your chest. When performing the exercise, you’ll notice that this added range of motion with dumbbells also means engaging parts of the chest that you don’t get with barbell exercises. For beginners and intermediates who have been spending most of their time with the barbell, take it slow when ramping up your dumbbell presses. Once that’s mastered, you can take the stability and range of one step further by alternating presses. This is something you will see occasionally from the Daily Spot trainers, and it’s a great way to switch up the traditional bench and challenge the muscles.
