Chest Press MachineLess burden on the joints
If bench press using barbells or dumbbells is difficult for you, do this workout instead. Try to invole more of your chest, not your arms.
1. Sit on the machine with your back against the back rest and feet flat on the floor. 2. Adjust the seat height so that when you extend your arms, the handles are slightly below your chest. 3. Grasp the handles with an overhand grip and extend your arms out in front of you.
1. Exhale as you slowly push the handles away from your body and extend your arms. 2. Keep a slight bend in your elbows as you press the handles away. 3. Hold for a moment at the end of the motion and squeeze your chest muscles. 4. Inhale as you slowly bring the handles back to the starting position.
1. Exhale as you press the handles away and inhale as you bring them back to the starting position. 2. Keep your breathing steady and consistent throughout the entire movement.
1. Make sure to keep your elbows slightly bent throughout the entire movement. 2. Avoid locking out your elbows at the end of the motion. 3. Avoid jerking or using momentum to press the handles away. 4. Do not arch your back during the motion.
