Standing Chest Press – Band

  • HOW: Start in a standing position with a band wrapped around your back at shoulder blade level holding the band in each hand. Begin the exercise by keeping the rest of your body still as you perform a standing bench press motion. Press your arms forward as far as they will go, slowly return to starting position and repeat.
  • FEEL: This should feel like an upper body workout, specifically your pecs, shoulders, and triceps. At the end of the pressing motion, allow your shoulder blades to spread apart by really reaching forward with your arms and hands.
  • COMPENSATION: Keep the rest of your body still, do not excessively arch or bend your back. Do not use momentum to perform the movement, slowly control the bands returning to starting position.
