How to Do Dumbbell Chest Press With Rotation on Ball

The dumbbell chest press with rotation on the ball should begin with a good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.

If any pain is experienced, immediately stop the dumbbell chest press with rotation on the ball.

Beginning

Beginning Dumbbell Chest Press With Rotation

1. Start off while holding the dumbbell straight up in front of you so that your knuckles face the ceiling and your palm face away.

2. Slowly bring the dumbbell down and bend at the elbow so that it eventually makes a 90 degree angle. Simultaneously press with the hand that isn’t holding a dumbbell.

3. At the bottom of the press, the back of the arms should be in a straight line, parallel to the ground, with your palms both still facing away.

4. Press back up from this position and simultaneously roll the stability ball towards the same direction.

5. Repeat.

Movement

1. Lay back on a stability ball so that it rests on your shoulders and neck.

2. Engage your abs to help keep your body straight while bending at the knees so your feet rest flat on the ground.

3. You will be performing a dumbbell press with only one of your arms while you simultaneously roll the stability ball left or right.

4. Your other free arm is going to alternate a pressing movement as if it had a dumbbell in its hand.

Benefits

When performing a dumbbell bench press, using a rotating grip can aid to reduce stress on the elbow joints. Additionally, the rotational movement pattern can aid in the development of mind-muscle connection during the exercise, which can help build additional strain on the chest.
