225 Done Right

225 pounds or 65 pounds, it’s all a matter of doing it right. Anu Mcknight with great form doing incline bench press during our photo shoot at Palm Springs Fitness Center.

His back end solid on the seat, feet planted flat, shoulders and head back. Hands well spaced to make the exercise work the chest and not too close together activating the triceps. Bring the bar straight down to just above the center line of your chest and then back up, not locking out your elbows. Slow, easy and repeat. If you are only moving it in a partial range, too heavy, lighten up.
