Incline Close Grip Bench Press

Post by verbatim » Sun Jan 19, 2014 9:00 am

Hello all!
I have searched through the Exercise list of exrx and found out that Incline Close Grip Bench Press only refers to Barbell, Lever or Smith variations (I cabbot post the exact URL, but see the list under Triceps Brachii section).
Is it unsafe/unrecommended to perform this exercise using Dumbbells?

Thank you in advance for any response!

It's perfectly fine.
What if the Hokey Cokey really IS what it's all about?

You can do almost any barbell move with dumbbells. Actually I suppose you can do all of them.

Dumbbells have the advantage of training the stabilizers, and they also reveal left/right differences so they are pretty cool.
