Chest Press


A few keys to remember:

· Progress gradually. Don’t try to do too much too soon. Listen to your body. When you need a rest, rest.

· A solid program must train both the upper and lower body.

· Know why you are performing each exercise. Set goals and lift weights because you want to, not because someone wants you to.

· Always breathe during a repetition and go through a full range of motion.

· Always consult with your family doctor before beginning any new exercise program.

  9. the jamster says:

    amen quesodude its all about reps and SLOWLY increasing weight.

  10. Quesodude says:

    Everybody is telling how many pounds they can lift, but how many reps can you do? If you can lift 150lbs but you can only do 5 reps thats not bad, but if you start with say 50lbs and you can do 30 reps thats easier on your body to slowly work from 50lbs up. If you can do 30 reps with 150lbs then more power to you. Just remember that weightlifting isn’t all about how much you can lift!!!

  23. griffin says:

    dumbells actually work trust me i use them all the time.

  24. tommy says:

    also, if you dont have access to weights like these, a pushup is the exact same motion and uses the exact same muscles.

    just be sure to use proper form

  25. tommy says:

    mysteryman, this works your chest and arms. specifically, your pectoral mucle groups (chest) and your tricepts (back of ur arm).

    your chest mucles contract to bring your humerous (upper arm bone) closer to your body, and your tricepts contract to straighten your arms.

  • Here's a simple dumbbell-based program to get you started.

    Work the first circuit, with one minute rest between exercises. Then rest for a couple minutes -- however long it takes to get your heart back to a normal, resting rhythm -- and complete the second circuit. Start with one set of 10 repetitions each per circuit and gradually improve until you can do three sets of each circuit.

    First circuit:
    Reverse Lunge
    One-Arm Shoulder Press
    One-Arm Lat Row
    One-Leg Calf Extension
    Biceps Flexion (Curl)

    Second circuit:
    Wide Squat
    Chest Press
    Rear Delt Row
    Narrow Squat
    Triceps Extension
    One-Leg Raise
    Trunk Flex

    To make sure you're progressing to your goals, record in a training log the number of sets, repetitions and resistance for each exercise in a training session.

    The log will help you figure out if you're doing the right thing and when you're ready to increase resistance. It'll also help you remember the order of exercises and how to do them.
