EXERCISE INSTRUCTIONS:

  • SETUP: Attach a resistance band under a flat bench. Take a neutral-grip for this one. Before you perform a rep, be sure to pin your shoulder blades back and puff your chest to maintain great posture.
  • REP: Brace your midsection by squeezing your glutes and driving your feet into the ground, then press the band from the center of your chest until your arms are extended above your chest. Lower under control and DO NOT interlock your fingers (makes it easier).
