Chest
Bench Press.
Lie face up on an exercise bench, knees bent and feet flat on the floor.
Hold the dumbbells on each side of your chest, palms facing your feet.
Your elbows should be pointing down, a few centimetres below the plane of your back.
Slowly press the dumbbells upward so that they come together, rotating your wrists so your palms face each other.
Extend your arms straight above your chest, but stop before your elbows lock.
Slowly lower the weights back to the starting position.
Do 8 to 12 repetitions.

Perform 8 to 12 repetitions.
