I"ve been following this exercise religiously because i really want to work on my chest. Problem being is that, when using the dumbbells, I feel my arms getting more tired and sore before my chest. I try my best to extend all the way down with good form. My question is should i just do this with a free bench press?
I was having this problem a week ago. Decided to Google why my shoulders and triceps were failing before my chest. My sources said to pull your shoulder blades together while in the starting position, and move your hands away from your chest as to avoid any sort of "close-grip bench press" technique. I tried this today and it helped my form quite a bit.
Try 3/4 reps, whereby you go all the way down but only raise the DBs 3/4s of the way up. Minimises tricep and shoulder involvement. I know it's a late reply but hopefully it's of some help
Had the same problem.Try to focus on pushing your chest away from the Dumbbells, instead of the other way around. Forget about trying to move your hand the farthest. Works like a charm.
