Barbell bench press:
Lowering the bar should take longer — twice as long — than raising it back up. When you’ve completed your set, return the bar back to the rack.
Set your barbell on the rack and position yourself to take the medium grip on the bar.
- Lift the bar and hold it straight over your body.
- Breathe in as you lower the bar mid-chest.
- Breathe out as you return back to your starting position. Go Next Page to see more
