If you’re tired of doing chest presses with dumbbells or a barbell then this is a great routine to change it up and shock your muscles into growth. If you find the resistance band chest presses to be too easy, you can always use a band with more tension for added resistance. Here is a video demonstration showing you How To Do A Resistance Band Chest Press with proper form.
For this exercise you will need to anchor the resistance band to an object. In the example we demonstrate in the video, the bands are conveniently attached to a fence.
With this exercise you want to imagine that you are trying to put your arms around a big basket at chest level in front of you. Your arms should make a big circle.
Stand facing away from the resistance band. Hold both handles with the band underneath your arms. Step one foot slightly forward and keep both knees slightly bent.
Start the exercise with your elbows raised to the sides just below shoulder level and your arms bent 90 degrees so that your wrists are directly in front of your elbows.
Complete the exercise by pushing your arms forward and slightly in so that you finish with arms straight in front of you and shoulder width apart. Return to the starting position. Complete 12-15 repetitions.
