10 Arms and Core Bench Exercises

I add these to 10 bench exercises for arms and core to my Tuesday and Friday routine. I like to use dumbbells for these. Start with very light weight just to get your muscles used to the motion. Then over time add a bit more weight. Be sure to learn proper technique and never have more weight than you can handle to avoid injury. Before doing any new exercise routine, consult with your physician and fitness trainer.
