The Dumbbell Bench Press

Reg Park Dumbbell Bench Pres

An exercise that rarely gets its due is the dumbbell bench press. It can be performed in much safer manner than the barbell version and builds just as much (if not more) upper-body strength and power.

The Dumbbell Bench Press was one of Reg Park’s favorite exercises. Here’s Reg using 140 pounds in each hand — an impressive poundage if you can do it once… Reg lifted it for 5 sets of 10 reps in a typical workout.
