Reverse Grip Bench Press

 

Step 1: Normally you would do this exercise at the bench press. However, if you can’t lift the 45lb bar on your own I suggest using a lighter E-Z bar

Step 2: Lying on a flat bench, grasp the bar with a supinated (reverse) grip, hands shoulder-width apart, and thumbs around the bar

Step 3: Press the bar back up to the start position in a slight backward arc without letting your elbows flare out

Step 4: Don’t lock out your elbows at the top of the rep; keep a bend in your arms, maintaining control of the weight at all times

Step 5: With your elbows tucked in close to your sides, slowly lower the bar down to your lower pecs, and touch down softly

Step 6: Press the bar back up to the start position in a slight backward arc without letting your elbows flare out

Step 7: Don’t lock out your elbows at the top of the rep; keep a bend in your arms, maintaining control of the weight at all times

Step 8: Complete 3-4 sets of 8-12 repetitions
