Overview

The bench press with bands is a of the traditional bench press that adds resistance from bands. This can help to increase the difficulty of the exercise and make it more challenging, which can lead to greater muscle growth. The bench press with bands also targets the chest muscles, specifically the pectoralis major and pectoralis minor. It is important to use a weight that you can comfortably lift for the desired number of repetitions. To perform the bench press with bands, you will need a bench, a barbell, and two resistance bands. Place the bench in a sturdy position and set the barbell on the rack at a height that allows you to comfortably lift it. Attach the bands to each end of the barbell and then lie down on the bench with your feet flat on the floor and your knees slightly bent. Grasp the bar with your hands shoulder-width apart and extend your arms so that the bar is directly above your chest. Slowly lower the bar to your chest until your elbows are at a 90-degree angle. Then, push the bar back up to the starting position. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.
