Lower chest

Coach's Tips

This is a bodyweight workout targetting chest. Depending on the position, you can target different areas of chest. Due to a high risk of injury, I recommend using a assist machine or a band!

How to

Starting Position

1. Sit on the edge of a bench or chair with your hands gripping the edge of the seat on either side. 2. Your feet should be planted firmly on the floor, about shoulder-width apart, and your back should be straight. 3. Lift your hips off the bench and extend your arms to lower your body until your upper arms are parallel with the floor.

Proper Form

1. Inhale as you slowly lower your body by bending your elbows. 2. Keep your elbows close to your body and your back straight as you lower. 3. Stop when your upper arms are parallel with the floor. 4. Exhale as you press back up to the starting position.

Breathing Technique

1. Inhale as you lower your body. 2. Exhale as you press back up to the starting position.

Precautions

1. Make sure to keep your back straight throughout the exercise. 2. Don_ let your elbows flare out to the sides. 3. Don_ lower your body too far. Stop when your upper arms are parallel with the floor. 4. Don_ bounce at the bottom of the movement.
