Close Grip Dumbbell Bench Press


Coach's Tips


How to

Starting Position

1. Lie down on a flat bench with your feet firmly planted on the floor. 2. Hold a pair of dumbbells directly above your shoulders with a close grip, with your palms facing each other. 3. Keep your elbows close to your torso and your entire body still throughout the exercise.


1. Slowly lower the dumbbells to the sides of your chest, inhaling as you do so. 2. Push the dumbbells back up to the starting position, exhaling as you do so. 3. Repeat the movement for the desired number of repetitions.

Breathing Technique

1. Inhale as you lower the dumbbells and exhale as you press them back up. 2. Try to keep your breathing steady and consistent throughout the exercise.


1. Keep your elbows close to your torso and your back flat against the bench throughout the exercise. 2. Avoid arching your back and locking your elbows at the top of the movement. 3. Control the weight and keep the movement slow and steady. 4. If you feel any pain or discomfort, stop immediately.
