A bench press variation that uses bands as resistance. The resistance comes from a slightly different angle so will target a different area of your pectorals.

Muscle group: Chest


Run a resistance band under the legs of the top side of a bench. Attach handles to the resistance cable. Lie down flat on the bench and grip one handle in each hand. Rest your arms with your elbows bent and out to your side. Your hands should be at chest level.

Push the handles up towards the ceiling until your hands are as high as they can go. Hold the top position for a moment then return your hands to the starting position.


Don't lock your elbows at the top of this exercise.
