How to Do Band Chest Press With Lateral Walk and Alternating Push

The band chest press with a lateral walk and alternating push should begin with a good posture to avoid injury. Brace the spine by drawing your lower abdomen inward. Your core muscles should be activated to support your posture as you perform the exercise.

If any pain is experienced, immediately stop the band chest press with a lateral walk and alternating push.

Beginning
