How To Perform Exercise

The barbell wide grip decline pullover is an advanced exercise to target the pectoral muscles and build a wider and stronger chest..

Steps :

1.) Start off lying on a decline bench with your feet higher than your head.

2.) Grab onto a barbell with an extra wide grip (hands near the plates) and then from your upper thighs, raise the barbell in an arc over your head towards the floor.

3.) Continue until you feel a stretch in your chest muscles and then hold the position for a count.

4.) Return back to the starting position and repeat for as many reps and sets as desired.

Tips :

1.) Squeeze the bar as though you were pushing both ends together as this will give an additional muscle contraction.

2.) Do not go beyond a normal range of motion
