#4 Barbell Bench Press
The barbell bench press targets the pectoral muscles with unrivalled precision and is a wonderful exercise for improving the push strength of the body. Moreover, it targets the deltoids and triceps for a superior upper body workout.
Step 1: Lie on a flat bench in a supine position and grab the barbell with a medium grip. Position the barbell in front of the chest to finish the starting position. Ensure that the elbows are always kept close to the body.
Step 2: Lift the barbell towards the ceiling until the arms are straight and perpendicular to the ground.
Step 3: Hold for a moment and return to the initial position.
Repeat the exercise for the recommended number of times.
Important tip: Do not use momentum and focus on a smooth and controlled motion to get the most out of this exercise.
