Instructions

Preparation

Execution

Lower barbell toward chest until elbows reach height of shoulders or bench. Press barbell up, keep arms slightly flexed. Repeat.

Variations / Comments

Keep bottom on bench. To avoid improper arching of lower back place heels on the edge of the bench or pull thighs up to perpendicular to floor. Keep wrists as straight as possible and use thumbs to hold barbell to prevent it from slipping.
