    What are some standing up exercises I can do with dumbbells?

    What are some standing up exercises I can do with dumbbells to build and work out the pecs? I have a pair of 25 lbs and a pair of 12 lbs. I'm specifically asking about exercises you can do standing up and/or squatting (but still on both feet). I tried asking this question on Quora, but some moron merged it with a question about dumbbell exercises generally, which is not answering the question at all.

    I'm confused OP, do you not lie down ever? Are you in one of those wheelchairs that keeps you upright all the time?
    All it takes is consistency, effort, proper nutrition, good programming, and TIME.

    Don't be upset with the results you didn't get from the work you did not do.

    I do lie down (and no, I'm not in a wheelchair or anything like that), it's just that I don't have that much space available in my room for things other than lifting dumbbells (such as press-ups und sit-ups), and that's the only place I really have to work out.

    He specifically said "to build pecs".

    OP, if you're specifically targeting the chest then you're going to have to do things like pushups and dumbbell floor presses and flys. Obviously none of those involve standing.

    Do some lying exercises with your lower body under a bed, table, etc if you don't have floor space. Do dips with one hand on a desk & the other on the highback of a sturdy chair.

    I find it hard to believe you've been on here for 10 years and only have pairs of 12 & 25 lb dbs, and that it's working for you in any way.

    You in a prison cell, OP? Surprised they let you have dumbbells but anything is possible in Biden's America.

    Impressive post to start date ratio. Chest flys for the horizontally challenged.

    Hold a pair of dumbbells with your palms facing up.

    While maintaining a slight bend in your elbow, raise both of your arms in front of you as if you were hugging someone.

    Control the dumbbells back to your sides to complete the repetitions.

    Bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable unto all things.
