– Barbell bench press variations are one of the best ways to train all of the pushing muscles at the same time. – When doing this exercise it is important to keep your shoulder blades retracted the entire time.
– The machine chest press is much easier to perform than a free weight press – The machine eliminates the need to stabilize the weights and is overall safer to perform
– The dumbbell bench press allows for a greater range of motion and more freedom for your shoulder angle – Press the weight up using a 45 degree angle of your elbows
– The push-up is the king of upper body calisthenics exercises, however, many do this exercise incorrectly – Make sure to brace your core and squeeze your glutes and maintain these muscles engaged the entire time
