Giolla Fhaolain. Bench. April 12th , 2017.
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.
It is not necessary that bench press should be done only with barbells. It can also be done with dumbbells with similar results. The other benefit of doing it with dumbbell is, that the dumbbells demand better coordination and force the stabilizing muscles to assist well. Make sure you do this exercise on a flat bench.
It is not affected by the weather conditions so can be left outside all year round and still look the same in December as it was in January.
A push up is a simple bodyweight exercise performed by lowering and raising your body using your arms, while resting it on your toes. It is a strength-training exercise and focuses on almost all the chest muscles. A bench press, which is a crucial part of bodybuilding, is also a strength-training exercise, and is performed by pressing the weight of a barbell away from the body, while lying on your back on a bench. It does not work on all chest muscles and needs supporting exercises to ensure a complete chest workout.
