How are you doing, eHow? Ronald Kenyatta here with totalhumanelevation.com. And today, I'm going go ahead answer the question, "What exercises does a dumbbell bench workout work?" Just to give you a little information about myself, I am a Strength and Conditioning Coach in Professional Baseball. I've been doing that, this is going to be my 12th year. I am a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist as well as a Performance Enhancement Specialist. So, that's enough about me, let's go ahead and answer your question about this decline bench exercise. Alright. Here we go. Basically, to answer the question, first the decline bench exercise works your pecs. To be specific, it works your lower pec. Now, the rule in general, whenever you're pressing, you're working your chest and your triceps. And whenever you're pulling, you're working your back and biceps. So, it's just something in general you could, you know, be aware of. So, let's just demonstrate and get right into it. This is very similar to your standard bench press; it's just on a, on an angle. That's the only difference. Alright. So, so as you can see folks, the only difference between this and your standard bench press is the angle, everything else is the same. So, all I'm going to do, make sure you're lined up underneath the bar and make sure you, make sure you go ahead and grab the bar in the right position. You don't want the bar too far over here, you don't want the bar too far over here. Line the bar up so it's even; find your grip and lift up and come down to the lower chest, right about here and drive up. On a control, control the movement up, control the movement on the, on the way down. Alright. There you have it folks, that's your decline bench press. And once again, we're working the pecs, but we're focusing on isolating the lower pecs as well as the triceps. So, that's all we have for today folks, I hope you enjoyed this demonstration and I look forward to seeing you again soon. Thank you and you have a good day. Bu-bye!
