Dumbbell Press on Floor


1) Sit in an upright position on the floor with a dumbbell in each hand (you may rest each dumbbell on the corresponding thigh).

2) Start position: Lie onto your back and bring the dumbbells up to your chest.

3) Press the dumbbells up directly above the chest with palms facing in the direction of the tops of the knees.

4) Lower the dumbbells, keeping your forearms perpendicular to the floor and your hands aligned at the mid chest area.

5) Let your upper arms get almost parallel to the floor and press the dumbbells back up to the start position.

6) Alternate throughout the exercise for the desired amount of repetitions.
