Purpose: To develop the lower and middle chest.
Execution: Take a dumbbell in each hand and lie back onto a decline bench. Raise the dumbbells above your lower chest with your palms facing each other. Keep a slight bend in your elbows and lower the dumbbells out and down to either side in a wide arc. Go all the way down and get a deep stretch, then lifts the weights back up in the same arc, like hugging a big tree. Avoid coming all the way up as this removes the tension from the chest muscles.
