This exercise is for advanced weightlifters only. It is hard to execute and will put a great number of other muscles to the test. That being said, when you get to a point where you can execute this movement, it will do wonders for your chest because it's so unique in how it "hits" your muscles. This exercise will help you break through a growth plateau in no time.

They key to remember is that the type of dumbbells you use for this exercise is very important. You will need dumbbells that can roll fairly smoothly. Rusty dumbbells, or dumbbells that are solid-state (cannot roll) will not work. Thus, there is a specific equipment requirement that needs to be met before you attempt this exercise.
