Chest Press with Resistance Band

| Fitness Index


Move Targets: Chest and Core


Step 1: Wrap the resistance band around a sturdy pole or bar and grab the handles so they are at an equal distance. Stand far enough away from the pole so that you feel a tight resistance during the backward motion of the movement like you see here. Bend your knees to protect the joints and push the work into the chest and core.


Step 2: Begin with an open chest and elbows at a 90-degree angle in line with the shoulders. Then press forward, keeping the arms at shoulder height. Brace the core and exhale as your press.


Step 3: Inhale and release the bands back to the starting position. Do not let your elbows go behind your back. Keep the band tight at all times.
