Pec Deck Workout Review

Pec Deck, an exercise machine, specifically works the chest and its supporting muscles, strengthening not just the chest but the entire upper body.

Pec deck engages arms and shoulders in order to activate and challenge the chest muscles. This results in an overall strengthening effect.

How to Do It?

  • Select the appropriate weight for the machine.
  • Sit on the platform. Press your back firmly against the back of the platform with your feet flat on the floor.
  • Grab the handles and place your forearms on each pad.
  • Bend your arms at a 90° angle and keep your elbows at chest level.
  • Gripping the pec deck handles, pull your arms toward your body while contracting your pectoral muscles.
  • Bring the handles or arm pads in front of your chest, hold the position for a few seconds before slowly releasing back to the starting position.
  • Repeat the desired number of reps.

Pec Deck Workout Tips

  • Exhale as you pull the handles toward your chest and inhale while you bring the handles back to starting position.
  • If the workout is too intense, go with less weight to prevent injury.
  • Your last rep should be difficult to complete, but not so much that you can't even maintain balance.
