Want increased muscle and more pressing strength in your training?
Then, attempt the Lying Flat Isometric Dumbbell Chest Press!
It's a great exercise to build hypertrophy for your #pecs
, and #triceps
while your other #core
muscles help stabilize the movement. The isometric portion of this exercise is terrific for combined #tendon
stability and strength gains to help progress into utilizing more weight to other pressing exercises.
Coaching Tips: • Press one of the dumbbells to the side of your chest with your elbows bent at 90-degrees keeping the other dumbbell over your head securely with your elbow slightly bent • Be sure to handle weights that you can press properly without any swinging while lowering the weights in a controlled manner for two to three seconds
• Engage your spine securely on the bench and your heels firmly on the floor for added stabilization • Since isometric pressing exercises recruit your core muscles, don't excessively lean or hike your hips • Lastly, remember to inhale while lowering the dumbbells and exhale as you press them upward for added strength benefits
Beginners should perform three sets of 10 repetitions using your 10-repetition max, with two minutes of rest in between sets. More advanced individuals should perform three sets of 12 to 16 repetitions using 75 percent of your one-rep max, with 90 seconds of rest between sets.
