Lever Chest Press

Instructions

Preparation

Sit on seat with upper chest just above horizontal handles. If available, push foot lever until lever is within grasping range. Grasp handles with wide overhand grip; elbows out to sides just below shoulders. Release foot lever.

Execution

Press lever until arms are extended. Return weight until chest muscles are slightly stretched. Repeat.

Comments

Some machines have foot levers to position handles in a more comfortable starting and ending position. If foot lever is available, engage it before releasing grips. Also see exercises on machine with lever fulcrum above. Range of motion will be compromised if grip is too wide.
