Leverage Bench Press

leverage bench press

I read a Frederic Delavier’s book « Strength Training Anatomy » and I learned good stuff.

Lying on a horizonzal bench with your butt glued to the bench and your feet on the ground :

  • Inhale and press

  • Exhale at the end of the movement

This guided exercise works the pectoralis major, mainly the sternal parts at the end of the movement. This guided exercise also work a little bit the triceps and anterior deltoids.

Variant : By pulling out your chest and arching your back, you work more the lower part of your pectoralis major (chest). But beware, this technique is harmful for people with back problems.
