Chest Exercises: Decline Dumbbell Presses

Form: Inhale and slowly lower the weights towards your chest. Pause for a brief second at the bottom and then slowly press up to the starting position.

Personal Trainer Tips: Do your best to keep a smooth pressing motion by keeping your wrist perpendicular to the ground.

Your wrists should remain completely under the dumbbells throughout the movement. Do not let the dumbbells angle towards your body or away from your body.
