chest press with resistance band under bench

BAND CHEST PRESS

VIDEO DEMO:


EXERCISE INSTRUCTIONS:

  • SETUP: Attach a resistance band under a flat bench. The great thing about bands is that we can rotate our grip if necessary. I like to be more diagonal on this one. Before you perform a rep, be sure to pin your shoulder blades back to maintain great posture.
  • REP: Brace your midsection by squeezing your glutes and driving your feet into the ground, then press the band up, bringing your hands together above chest level.
  • TIP: Notice I encourage you to bring the band IN at the top. This will achieve ADDUCTION and therefore work your chest even harder.
