EXERCISE INSTRUCTIONS:

  • SETUP: Attach a resistance band under an incline 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 in at the top. Each rep should finish level with your chest.
  • TIP: Notice I encourage you to bring the band slightly IN at the top. This will achieve ADDUCTION and therefore work your chest even harder.
