Overview

The bench press is a powerlifting exercise that targets the triceps as the main muscle group. It is performed by lying on a bench with your feet flat on the floor and your knees slightly bent. The barbell is held in front of you with your hands shoulder-width apart. You then lower the bar to your chest and press it back up to the starting position. The bench press is a compound exercise that also works the pectoral muscles, anterior deltoids, and serratus anterior. It is a great exercise for building strength and muscle mass in the upper body.
