What is chest press?

Chest press

  1. Sit or stand up straight. Pass an exercise band behind your back and under your arms so that you have an equal length of the band on each side.
  2. Hold one side of the band in each hand, with your knuckles on top of the band and your elbows bent out to your sides. Adjust the band so you have some tension on it.
  3. Keeping your hands at shoulder level, slowly extend your arms in front of you. Don't lock your elbows.
  4. Slowly return to your starting position.
  5. Repeat 8 to 12 times.
