Bench Press

Bench presses can be an effective exercise for building up chest, arm, and shoulder muscles. If you're new to the bench press, work with a spotter.

Grip the bar with hands just wider than shoulder-width apart and your eyes being straight with the bar.



Cable Fly

Cable chest flyes is an isolation exercise for the chest and front deltoids. Compared to dumbbell chest flies, the resistance curve in cable flies is more evenly distributed, and you have more of a constant load on your chest muscles throughout the whole range of motion. People doing dumbbell flyes are a common sight in most gyms, and that's because it's one of the few exercises that isolate the chest to build muscular size and strength. ... Instead, to build a bigger and stronger chest effectively and safely, do standing cable flyes.



Seated Chest Press Machines

The seated chest press works your biceps and latissimus dorsi muscles. The machine allows you to lift heavier loads with more control. Use proper form and adjust the seat and handles to the correct position. Exercises such as the bench press will increase your metabolism, leading your body to burn more calories and potentially fat.



Seated Chest Press Sideways

Sit sideways in any seated chest press machine so that your rear delt and lat are making contact with the pad for a better range of motion. Lean back slightly, which will help you extend to full lockout, and push the weight up. Make sure to squeeze the chest hard at the top of the movement for at least 1 to 2 seconds.
