Incline dumbbell press

jen-jewell-month-1-incline-dumbbellpress.jpg

Lie back on an incline bench with a dumbbell in each hand on top of your thighs, palms facing each other. Raise dumbbells to shoulder width and rotate wrists forward so that palms of your hands are facing away from you. Lock your arms at the top, hold for a second and then bend your arms as you slowly lower the weight, stopping once dumbbells are lowered to just slightly above your shoulders and angled slightly over your chest. Hold this motion for one second and then repeat the motion for required reps.
