Dumbbell Bench Press with Neutral Grip

The neutral-grip dumbbell bench press is a variation on a classic chest-building exercise where the palms face each other instead of forward. This shift puts the elbows closer to the sides, placing more emphasis on the triceps, and perhaps also the inner chest. The neutral-grip press can be performed in lower reps for strength or higher reps for muscle growth.

Benefits

  1. Increased triceps focus over normal grip
  2. Also works the chest and shoulders
  3. Many people find it more shoulder-friendly than the close-grip barbell bench press
