Decline Dumbbell Bench Press Standards (lb)

Decline dumbbell bench press strength standards help you to compare your one-rep max lift with other lifters at your bodyweight.

Our decline dumbbell bench press standards are new and we will be refining them over the next six months as we collect more data from lifters using Strength Level.

Dumbbell strength standards are based on the weight of each dumbbell, not the weight of two added together. For example, if you bicep curl 20 lb dumbbells in each arm that would count as 20 lb not the total 40 lb.
