  2. Whilst keeping your chest proud and your back neutral lean forward slightly to put more strain on your chest, inhale and slowly lower your weight down by flexing at the elbow until your reach a 90º angle.
  3. Exhale and push your weight back up to the starting position. 
  4. Repeat for the prescribed sets and repetitions.


  1. Make sure that you keep a slight lean in order to place the pressure on the pectorals.
  2. Don’t go below 90 degrees as you will put un-wanted stress on your shoulders.
