Purpose: To develop the middle pectoral region.

Execution: Lie with your back flat on the bench; raise the dumbbells straight overhead with your palms facing each other; keeping a slight bend in your elbows and keeping the palms facing each other throughout the movement, lower the weights out and down to either side in a wide arc; lift the weights back up along the same wide arc (in a hugging motion); bring the weights to the point just before they hit each other, extending the arms straight and giving the pecs a nice squeeze before lowering the weights for another rep.
