Bench Press

The bench press is a piece of equipment used for upper body strength training exercise consisting of pressing a weight upwards from a supine position. While exercising, you will be working the pectoralis major as well as supporting chest, arm, and shoulder muscles such as the anterior deltoids. Other muscles to benefit from this workout are: serratus anteriorcoracobrachialisscapulae fixerstrapezii, and the triceps. Using a  barbell to hold the weight is advantageous, but a pair of dumbbells can also be used.

The barbell bench press is one of three lifts in the sport of powerlifting(alongside the deadlift and squat). This is used extensively in weight trainingbodybuilding, and other types of training to develop the chest muscles.


bench press
noun
1a bodybuilding and weightlifting exercise in which a lifter lies on a bench with the feet on the floor and raises a weight with both arms.
verb
1raise (a weight) in a bench press.
“Josh can bench-press more than 400 pounds”

People performing this exercise should lie on their back on a bench with a weight grasped in both hands. Once in the correct position, they push the weight upwards until their arms are extended. Taking care to avoid the elbows locking because this can cause injury. When the arms are fully extended, they can then lower the weight to chest level. This is one repetition (rep).

Powerlifting: Taking the position on a flat bench, with body weight resting on buttocks and upper traps. You need to drive with your feet into the floor. As a result of this kind of movement, the weight will be taken at full arms’ length, lowered to the upper torso, paused, and then lifted to starting position.
