How To Look Better With Your Shirt Off
If you eat healthy and do this workout program three times per week, you won’t need to worry about your gut and moobs when you hit the beach this summer.

DUMBBELL BENCH PRESS
The dumbbell bench press allows for more mobility and a better stretch at the bottom of the movement compared to a standard barbell bench press. That also means you’ll need to work harder to control the weight during the exercise. Read: If you think you’ll need a spot, you probably will. Ask anyone within earshot who looks like they won’t allow the weight to crush your skull for help.
How to do it:
• Grab a pair of dumbbells and balance them on your quads as you sit on the end of a flat weight bench.
• Lie back on the bench and raise the dumbbells so they’re fully extended at arm’s length when your back is flat on the bench.
• Slowly lower the dumbbells in unison to your mid-chest and about as wide as your armpits; keep your elbows close to your sides.
• Press the dumbbells up and in toward each other slightly; keep your back touching the pad and don’t let the dumbbells clang together at the top of the movement.
• Lower and repeat.
