1.) Start off by placing a flat bench in the middle of a smith machine.
2.) Using a close grip, hands about 6 inches apart, unlatch the bar and lower it towards your chest.
3.) Pause just before the bar hits your chest and raise the bar by extending your arms to the starting position.
4.) Repeat for as many reps and sets as possible
1.) Refrain from bouncing the bar off of your chest as this is improper form and could lead to injury.
