why the chest press?
If you're wondering why I've included this exercise, it's because it's one of the easiest ways to build upper body strength relatively quickly. Working with the weight out in front of you, rather than overhead, is easier for most shoulders as well. You will want to get into overhead movements eventually, but this is a good place to start.
As with the other exercises, 3 sets of 10 of each version before you go on to the next. You'll need a counter space, resistance band, and two dumbbells for this series.
CHEST PRESS 2: COUNTER MINI PUSH UPS
CHEST PRESS 4: CHEST PRESS WITH RESISTANCE BAND
CHEST PRESS 5: CHEST PRESS WITH WEIGHTS
Once the chest press with weights is easy, I'll show you how to progress with this downloadable PDF!
