10 Of The Best Chest Exercises For Women

4. Dumbbell Bench Presses are one of the best chest exercises for women

These work your pectorals over the entire chest. Use dumbbells rather than a barbell if available as it increases the difficulty and requires you to focus on stabilizing each weight.

How to do them: While on your back on a sturdy bench or the floor, hold a dumbbell in each hand. Start with the weights level with the chest and push both upward simultaneously until the arms fully extend. Pause for a brief moment at the highest point and pause again at the bottom. This movement can be repeated 10 – 12 times.
