Barbell Bench Press for Men
Barbell Bench Press
- Grasp a barbell with an overhand grip that's just wider than shoulder-width, and hold it above your sternum with arms completely straight.
- Lower the bar straight down, pause, then press the bar in a straight line back up to the starting position. Keep your elbows tucked in, so that your upper arms form a 45-degree angle with your body in the down position. This reduces stress on your shoulder joints.
