Summary

As you push each dumbbell, your core muscles have to fire to keep your body from rotating in the opposite direction, Fagan says.“You’re combining the ‘push’ muscles with core stability and core strength in the workout,” she says.The dumbbell chest workout starts with alternating-arm versions of the most challenging compound moves—the chest press and shoulder press—in a superset. This is the starting position.Press the dumbbell in your right hand toward the ceiling, straightening your elbow completely and keeping your palm facing your leg. Hold a weight in each hand with your palms facing each other, arms on the ground by your sides, and elbows touching the ground and bent, so that your forearms and the dumbbells are in the air. This is 1 rep.Complete 12–15 reps.Start in a high plank position with your palms flat on the floor, hands shoulder-width apart, shoulders stacked directly above your wrists, legs extended behind you, and your core and glutes engaged.Tap your right hand to your left shoulder while engaging your core and glutes to keep your hips as still as possible.
