    Dumbbell exercises for upper chest

    So I'm looking for dumbbell exercises I could do to train my upper chest. I do not have a bench, so that's been an issue for me. Been doing floor/ bed press, but upper chest needs work. Gyms are closed, so just trying for my gains to survive. Any ideas?

    Incline push-ups, incline bench press(on any inclined surface), upper chest dip, pike push up are some you can do at home

    You can mimic cable flys with a dumbbell...
    Just do one arm at a time and squeeze at the top.

    Get an adjustable bench on FB market place or crags list.
    Albertini's push up suggestion is a good one but i think she meant put your feet on a a small chair or block to put more stress on upper chest.
    You can also do dive bomb push ups(do a search) for the same type effect on the upper chest.

    Same as a floor press, but doing it on bed instead. Lacks full range of motion, but you can still get a decent stretch of the chest by pressing on the floor. No need to overreact. It's the same **** as doing it on the floor. OHP is for shoulders. Decline push ups I like tho.

    No it isn't. It's like comparing squatting on a floor to squatting on a bosu ball.
