How to Do Flat Barbell Chest Press
You need to have enough muscular strength to prevent involuntary movement of your Lumbo Pelvic Hip region; your core should be strong enough to stabilize you at all times.
Beginning Barbell Chest Press
Lay flat on the bench and tighten your abdomen.
Place your feet flat on the floor with your toes pointing forward.
Grasp the bar and place your hands slightly wider than shoulder-width apart.
Barbell Chest Press Movement
1. Lower the bar towards your chest in a slow and controlled movement.
2. Do not arch your back or push your head forward.
3. While you contract the chest, press the bar back to the starting position. Stop when your elbows reach full extension.
4. Use a weight that you can lift in a controlled manner.
