CHEST PRESS STANDING

Preparation

Set the bar at the height of the upper chest. As high as possible so that the movement is controlled from the chest muscles and not by the upper body leaning too far forward.

Starting Position

Stand with chest stable against the handle bar and upper body slightly inclined forward. Grasp the bar with a wide overhand grip. Back is straight and abdomen is tense.

Execution

Die Griffstange gleichmässig nach unten drücken bis die Arme gestreckt sind. Am untersten Punkt dann Stange kontrolliert und langsam wieder in Ausgangsposition zurückführen.

Hint

Stand as close to the bar and keep your core and standing position stable. Consciously control the movement with the chest muscle.

Variants

This exercise is an excellent alternative and complement to the bench press.
