Floor Press – Dumbbell

  • HOW: Start laying flat on your back with your knees bent to at least 90 degrees. With weights or objects supported in each hand, flatten your low back into the ground followed by performing a bench press motion with your arms, lower your arms all the way down until they touch the ground and repeat. Your arms can be angled 45 degrees from your torso, or however you prefer.
  • FEEL: This should feel like an upper body workout, your arms will be working with the floor press.
  • COMPENSATION: Do not let your back excessively arch or bend. At the top of the press the weights/objects should be positioned over your shoulders. Do not excessively flare your elbows. Stay strong through your wrists keeping your knuckles facing the ceiling.
