Dumbbell Floor Press Guide

Main Muscle: Triceps

  1. Lay on the floor holding dumbbells in your hands. Your knees can be bent. Begin with the weights fully extended above you.
  2. Lower the weights until your upper arm comes in contact with the floor. You can tuck your elbows to emphasize triceps size and strength, or to focus on your chest angle your arms to the side.
  3. Pause at the bottom, and then bring the weight together at the top by extending through the elbows.

Tip: Dumbbell Floor Press

Exercise Rating
10/10

Feb 4, 2014 7:04 PM: It's way better to stick the dumbbells together throughout the whole movement and hold at the top for a brief moment with your arms completely straight. Tuck your elbows in, keep your back flat and lower the dumbbells to your lower chest.
