Training 101: Chest Press

by Dan Greenbaum

October 24, 2013

The hammer strength chest press is a great motion to hit the pectoralis major and minor. It recruits a great number of muscle fibers in your chest muscles for a great contraction. To perform this movement make sure the bars are set at mid chest height and make sure that your back is flat against the pad. As you press, create an inward intention by imagining that you are pressing your elbows together. This will allow you to isolate the pec muscle for better results. Press upward in one second and control the way down with a four second tempo. Try 3 sets of 10-12 reps!
