Another great exercise for your chest, the butterfly with dumbbells is the perfect way to create a sense of tension on your chest muscles so that they can slowly grow and improve over time. A set of three into 10 is recommended for beginners with weights of your choice. You can slowly increase the amount of sets over time once you start getting used to the exercise. This is one of the best upper chest exercises with dumbbells.

- Lie on a plank with your shoulders wide apart
- Move both the dumbbells towards the ground
- Move them apart and repeat this for 3 sets.

* Sit Ups

Many people think that sit ups only put pressure on the abs thus working on the abs entirely but this is a wrong conception. Sit ups also work the upper chest and pectoral muscles because you use the back and the chest to sit up. It is a great way to join two exercises in one to get the best results.

- Lie down on the floor against your back with your arms pressed on your head

- Slowly raise the upper part of your body with your legs folded
- Hold on for a few seconds and go back to the original posture.

* Barbell Inclined

The barbell is a perfect way to work on your upper chest muscles and is even better when the barbell is placed on an inclined board on which you need to lie down. The inclined barbell puts pressure on your upper chest forming very prominent muscles over time.

- Load the barbell to suit your weight and lie on the bench with your feet flat on the ground.
- Arch your back and retract your shoulder blades
- Take a grip and slowly lift the barbell above your chest with your arms extended.
- Lower the bar and do not bounce it off the chest. Maintain the position and repeat.

To further work on the upper chest after you have considerably achieved a good amount of muscle already, move onto the wide barbell inclined which requires you to increase or widen the grip on the barbell which puts considerable pressure on your chest and arms.

- Lean on an incline bench and place your feet flat on the ground. Arch your back slightly for better posture.
- Raise the bar off the rack and lift it slowly and hold it for a second
- Slowly start down the weight to touch the upper chest muscles. Bring it back to the start position again.
