I'm Greg Mc Lean. I've got some tips for you today on how to improve your bench press and press more weight. The purpose of these exercises is to get the chest muscle to stabilize a lot easier. What we're going to do is challenge the muscles to have to balance in an unstable environment and that creates better support system. So when I'm going to lift heavier weight it makes it a lot easier for the body to push it. First exercise is a dumbbell chest press on the ball. Two great reasons for doing this exercise, one it really brings in the core, forces the body to stabilize so as we're lifting heavier weight, if you've got a better support system we're always going to be able to drive weight with that much more ease. Second reason we want to do this is it's going to train a lot of the stabilizer muscles that run through the peck, shoulders and arms, force all those tiny muscles to do a lot of work that we don't typically get just doing a barbell press or a dumbbell press. So that way when we add heavier weight it's going to allow those muscles to stabilize that much easier. Second exercise we're going to do is we're going to do an alternating dumbbell press on the bench. What this does is get the body stabilizing left side, right side which really turns on those core muscles, forces the body to really have to balance. Once again, when we're loading heavier weight and we're in a more stable environment it's always just going to help us to push heavier weight which is the goal of these two exercises. So for most of us guilty of the same old chest workouts, give these two exercises a try. Maybe once, twice a week for the next month and I guarantee you see a difference in that chest press.
