Chest press with resistance band

Please follow and like us:

How to

1. Attach the centre of the band to a stationary object and hold one end in each hand

2. Stand with your back to the attachment, elbows bent and shoulders abducted to 90 degrees (upper arm level with shoulder) so that your hands are next to your chest.

3. Push forwards and straighten your arms out in front of you.

4. Slowly return to the starting position.


Why use resistance bands?

They are super affordable and the ideal fitness multi-tasker. Just choose the right band based on your weight – it’s all written on either the packaging, online or ask in store. As you get stronger you’ll need to lower the assistance to account for your new strength.

For example, a robust general tension band combined with a heavy band offers roughly the same amount of resistance as a power band, but the combination gives you three different levels of assistance (one with the heavy band, one with robust, and one with both bands). Colours denote the different band strengths and vary between brands.

You can do so much in 5 weeks! 💪🏼
Angelica Ramirez (@instaang87) was a top 10 finalist in my last 5 weeks challenge... I'm so excited for her transformation!

A healthy lifestyle is a work in progress, with ups and down but hopefully always moving forward toward learning more, making better choices, and living mindfully! If you make small changes and stay consistent you'll see incremental progression which will increase the likelihood that you will stick with the change and want to do more! 👉🏼 It all starts with a choice and your health should be your first priority!
