- Lie supine on incline bench with parallel lever bars out
to sides of rib cage. Grasp parallel handles.
- Press lever bars up until arms are extended. Lower weight
toward upper chest. Repeat.
- Seat should be adjusted, so handles are to sides of lower
chest. Parallel grip tends to place shoulders in a more stable
position, with arms closer to sides, which may be more ideal
for those with certain shoulder issues. See exercise on alternative
machine. Also see exercise performed with standard
grip providing greater emphasis on chest development. Also
