Enter Arnold, CT Fletcher, and The Rampage Cast
Enter the realm of fitness gurus like CT Fletcher, movie stars like the Fast and Furious 7 cast, and legendary bodybuilders like Arnold Schwarzenegger. Yes! Strength training and floor presses go hand in hand. While the bench press is undeniably effective for loading up your chest, what if we told you that there’s another pressing move that offers unique benefits? The dumbbell floor press, an intense upper body exercise, might be just the ticket.
It’s All About Getting into Action
Acting is not merely confined to the Fast Furious cast; it’s also about getting into action in the gym! The dumbbell floor press limits your range of motion more than a barbell press, and you’re able to use a neutral grip on the dumbbells. This reduces extension at the shoulder joint while still targeting the pecs and triceps. The shorter range of movement means an impactful workout for your triceps, shoulders, and chest.
Get Supercharged with the Floor Press
The floor press is a regressed version of the bench press that can help educate lifters on specific cues like tensing the back, proper foot placement, and maintaining stability, much like how Amanda Salinas gets supercharged on the Rampage cast. Start with 5-10 reps using slow and controlled eccentrics for two to three sets.
Benefits: Overload, Easy On Shoulders
One amazing benefit of the floor press is the ability to overload the top portion (lockout) of the bench press with heavier weights than you would normally use. Also, enjoy the added bonus of less stress on your shoulder joint, much like the comfort of a cosy turtleneck. The reduced range of motion limits any extreme stretching or strain.
Strength Builder for Chest, Shoulders, and Triceps
Get killer strength in your chest, shoulders, deltoids, and triceps. Even though the floor press does not significantly involve the lower body, and is a partial range of motion lift, it still engages multiple muscles. It’s like a solid, comprehensive punch of strength and growth staring back at you from the mirror.
Floor Press: A Heavier Lift for Beginners
Like the weights, the dumbbell floor press is also weighty on benefits. It’s a great exercise for beginners because it lets them lift heavier weights without the risk of injury. Heavier weights can boost muscle build-up and strength in beginners quicker.

Trivia: The Floor Press Saga
Here’s a fun trivia: the floor press predates the bench press. In fact, before that trusty bench came along, floor press was the only press. The camaraderie among the lifters was intense, much like the bonds formed by the Fast and Furious 7 cast.
