Close Grip Bench Press

 



Execution: Lying on your back on a flat bench, take an overhand grip on the barbell with your hands 4 to 10 inches apart. Keep your buttocks in contact with the bench and your feet flat on the floor during this exercise. Inhale and slowly lower the barbell until it hits your chest. Press the weight back up, exhaling as you reach the top.

Variations:
• Add a length of chain to the ends of the bar to increase the weight as you raise the bar.
• Try pressing your elbows into your sides to focus on the anterior deltoids.
