Around The Worlds Guide

Main Muscle: Chest

  1. Lay down on a flat bench holding a dumbbell in each hand with the palms of the hands facing towards the ceiling. Tip: Your arms should be parallel to the floor and next to your thighs. To avoid injury, make sure that you keep your elbows slightly bent. This will be your starting position.
  2. Now move the dumbbells by creating a semi-circle as you displace them from the initial position to over the head. All of the movement should happen with the arms parallel to the floor at all times. Breathe in as you perform this portion of the movement.
  3. Reverse the movement to return the weight to the starting position as you exhale.

Variations: None

Jun 13, 2016 8:26 AM: I find that using lighter weights and doing higher reps on this excersises targets the chest allot more.

Nov 9, 2015 9:20 AM: This workout tweaked my shoulder and I was sidelined about a week. Felt like my rotator cuff. If you have a history of shoulder injury, I wouldn't recommend it.

Jun 18, 2015 8:32 AM: This is great for hitting the very middle of your pecs. Though as other users have said you must be injury free in your shoulders as it does place lots strain there.
Stay really light with your weights, it is one of those exersizes which catches up with you at the end. I would not recommend...+See More
