How to do Exercises and use the Fitness Equipment at LA Fitness.

Dumbbell Bench Press

Sit on the bench with a dumbbell in each hand resting on your thighs. Next, lean back and straighten your arms as you push the dumbbells up so that they’re directly above your shoulders. Then, lower the dumbbells to the sides of your chest, pause, and then push the dumbbells back up to the starting position. Continue the repetitions for a duration that best suits your goals and personal level of fitness.
