Dumbbell Chest Press

Dumbbell Chest Press

Dumbbell Chest Press is a very effective exercise for your chest and upper body in general. They’re effective because using dumbbells by nature, require you to use more muscle to balance the weights. The dumbbell chest press also allows for more motion than the traditional bench press with a bar. The greater motion allows you to work your chest muscles even more.

Triceps Push Ups

Triceps Push Ups

Triceps Push Ups, or pushups, are probably the most effective of the triceps exercises for developing the triceps muscles. This is because anytime you are moving your body instead of moving an object in your hands, you are using more muscle and using more energy. This will lead to greater results. Another reason I like them is because they require no equipment so you can do them at home. Besides this exercise, you can see more at List of Exercises by Body Part.

Cable Curls

Cable Curls

Cable curls are a very common type of biceps exercise. You can perform these anywhere you have a multi-station gym with a hand-grip that comes from the floor. Cable curls are beneficial because the angle of the chain changes the stress on your muscles. Variety in the stress leads to prolonged improvements before your body adapts.
