BAND CHEST PRESS

Exercise Instructions:

  1. Attach a band to a low position under a bench and lie flat, taking an overhand-grip in each hand.
  2. The great thing about bands is that we can rotate our grip if necessary. I like to be more diagonal on this one.
  3. Set your shoulders by pulling your shoulder blades together.
  4. Brace your midsection by squeezing your glutes and driving your feet into the ground.
  5. Press the bands up and in. It’s crucial we achieve ADDUCTION, so aim for the mid-line of your pecs as you press the bands up. The higher you get, the more tension you’ll feel.

Muscles Worked:

Chest, shoulders, triceps.
