The correct technique is to lift the bar off the stand, inhale as you lower the bar to the chest. The bar should gently touch the chest, but should not rest on it. When you are lowering the bar to the chest, it is important that you do so at a controlled pace. In case you lower the bar too quickly, you will lose control and the bar will strike the chest. If the bar strikes the chest with great force, it can cause fracture to the sternum or to the ribs. Now slowly begin to press the weight up towards the starting position. Exhale, when you pressing the bar up. The end stage would be to fully extend the arms and lock your elbows. Then lower the bar again to repeat. The most important of the tip is not to arch the back and lift your feet off the floor, when you are doing the exercise.
Besides the aesthetical benefits, bamboo bench tops are extremely practical, durable and strong. Save money on coasters and mats, as bamboo bench tops are able to withstand heat. Move any hot pan or directly from your stove to your bamboo bench top without leaving a single mark. As the actual bamboo plant is not affected by heat or cold; neither is its product. Even areas that experience constant water exposure such as the sink will not harm your bench top. Although not completely proof, bamboo bench tops are fairly able to withstand scratching as well.
This is often chosen over the other two techniques of doing bench press, as it allows the person to lift more weight than the other two positions. To do the exercise, position yourself on a free weight decline machine and place your hands on the bar at a little more than shoulder width distance. Lift the barbell off the rack and slowly bring it down closer to your chest, but do not rest it on your chest. Then slowly push the bar back to the starting position, straighten your hands, and lock your elbows.
One of the major differences between a barbell and a dumbbell bench press is, that you can use substantially more weight for the latter. So if your goal is to increase your chest size, you will benefit by doing the dumbbell exercise. Although there is no set formula for weight conversion, in a barbell bench press routine, you can use almost double the weight than the dumbbell bench press.
