This exercise is an example of a compound movement, which means it works multiple muscle groups at the same time. The primary muscle this exercise targets is the pec major, and the secondary muscles are deltoids and triceps. This is a great exercise for building upper body strength.

The chest press exercise can be done either with a barbell or dumbbells. The movement for both is the same, although there is more stability required with the dumbbells. Today Anthony will demonstrate the dumbbell chest press.

Tip: If you really want to focus on your pec muscles, follow-up with a dumbbell chest fly after this exercise. Supersets for the win!* The dumbbell chest fly will focus on your outer pec muscles and the two exercises together will really give your chest a good workout! *Supersets involve moving quickly from one exercise to a separate exercise without taking a break for rest in between the two exercises.
