How To Perform Exercise

The bench press machine exercise targets the chest muscles and offers more stability for people new to the exercise.

Steps :

1.) Start off by adjusting a bench press machine so that when you sit at the machine, the bars are positioned at chest height.

2.) Place your hands upon the bars and place your feet flat on the foot rests in front of you as this will be your starting position.

3.) Press out, by extending your arms out as far as possible, in a slow and steady motion until you feel a stretch in your tricep muscles.

4.) Hold this position for a count then return back to the start.

5.) Repeat for as many reps and sets as desired.
