    What is this exercise called?

    On a whim I attempted this exercise last chest day.



    Basically, you hold a dumbbell between two hands, only one, and align it so the heads are parallel with your body, not perpendicularly like normal DB presses. From a lying position, you press the dumbbell up and down like a normal press though it should be between the pecs at the end of the ROM. It felt like it hit the inner pecs the most.


    Wondering if this is already an exercise, and is there a name for it?
    Back off, Warchild.

    Seriously.

    Svend press
    Although there are many variations

    - some guys like to put 2 small plates one to another and do it while standing. "it will develop your pecs" - yeah, it will, if it doesn't kill your shoulders first. I don't get it. If you really want to feel your chest, just do it without plates and keep your arms straight, with your biceps almost touching each other, for 1 minute.

    - some do it while lying - it has more logic than standing, but still, pretty dumb

    - some, instead of 2 small plates, use a big plate - this changes everything.... joking, still dumb

    - some prefer 2 dumbbells put together while lying - this is better than plates, in my opinion. It is safer, you can add more weight, it hits tris, chest, delts. And yeah, it feels more like "inner chest" than a regular press.

    - also, some do it on a smith machine with the v-handle used for cable rows - dumb idea, imo.

    I've never seen someone svend press with only one db.

    Thanks guys, I think I've also heard the term 'prison press' for this exercise too. Would that be correct?

    Refresh my memory: which ones are the "inner pecs"?
    --There are no stupid questions, just stupid people.

    --Are you eating while you are reading this? You should be... --hrdgain81

    --The proper plural form of the Latin adjective biceps is bicipites, a form not in general English use. Instead, biceps is used in both singular and plural (i.e., when referring to both arms). The form bicep [sic], although common even in professional contexts, is considered incorrect. (from Wikipedia)
