How to do the Bench Press:

Muscles Worked

Tips

  1. Ask someone to act as a spotter if you haven't done this exercise before. If no one is available, limit the weight used to lower the risk of injury.
  2. Avoid allowing the bar to move forward. If the exercise is being performed correctly, it should be touching the mid-chest and nowhere else on the body.
  3. Don't allow the weight to bounce. You should be in full control of the process at all times.

Variations

  1. Vary the width of your grip to target different muscles.
  2. Use dumbbells instead of a barbell.
  3. Perform on an incline bench.

Other Names

  • Barbell Bench Press
  • Barbell Chest Press

Types

  • Force Type: Push
