Like a barbell bench press with a downward slope, the dumbbell bencher shifts the stress on the lower pectoral muscles, thereby contributing to their growth and development. Of course, it is safer to really lift large weights in the form of pancakes hung on the barbell, but, compared with the barbell, dumbbells allow you to work with a greater amplitude of movement. And as a result: the muscles contract even more, which can not but contribute to their enhanced growth.
The dumbbell bench press with a downward incline “cuts” the bottom and the outer part of the pectoral muscles, which gives them a more distinct and pronounced form. Continue reading
Squatting is one of the most important basic exercises in bodybuilding and powerlifting. Squats are often used as ancillary exercises in many sporting disciplines, as well as used as a general strengthening and rehabilitation exercise. Along with the deadline, squats give the greatest impetus to gain strength and muscle mass of the whole body.

Due to the wider range of motion, the dumbbell bench press makes it possible to use those muscle fibers that are not subject to the bench press, and as a result, the external parts of the pectoral muscles develop better. Continue reading
