Resistance Band Chest Press

Written by Jennifer Koenig on November 23, 2015

We love resistance bands because they travel so well! You can get a full body workout in anywhere with minimal equipment. This exercise is to work those chest, arm, and shoulder muscles.  

 

Resistance Band Chest Press

Step 1: Start with one foot forward a couple of feet, keeping your forward leg bent and your back leg straight.

Step 2: Secure the band around your back foot and be sure that it is securely anchored during the entire exercise.

Step 3: Allow the band to rest on the outside of your arms.

Step 4: Raise your hands so that they are next to your shoulders. This is your starting position

Step 5: Keep your back straight and look straight ahead.

Step 6: While tightening your chest, arm, and abdominal muscles, slowly push your hands forward and slightly up until your arms are straight but not locked at a 45 degree angle.
