Exercises for the muscles of the chest
Seated press in the simulator
The most basic chest exercise is the bench press. Variations are possible here, but for beginners it is better to do it in the simulator. Exercise loads the pectoralis major muscle, as well as the triceps and anterior deltoid muscle.
In any pressing exercise, the shoulder blades should be constantly brought together at any point in the movement. It is important to control the load on the pectoralis muscle, and not to press with your shoulders or triceps. Make sure that the angle between the shoulder and the body is 80 degrees, that is, slightly less than the right angle. Do 10-12 reps.
The exercise is usually performed in a block, shown on
Dumbbell Bench Press
The bent over press is needed to work the upper chest. The dumbbell press is significantly different from the barbell in that you need to control each hand. This additionally trains coordination and stabilizing muscles. When doing it, you need to make sure that the hands move smoothly and synchronously, perform the movement in full amplitude and lead them along one line. Do 10-12 reps.
