Target Muscles: Pectoral Muscles

Seated Chest Press Machine Overview

The chest press machine works on your pectoral muscles. It also works on your biceps, deltoids, and latissimus dorsi. The seated chest press is a great exercise to include in your upper body workout routine. You also need better core stability to do the exercise.

Since the pectoral muscles get weaker with age, it is necessary to work on them. In this exercise, you recruit the biceps and muscles of your shoulder and back.

How to Do It

  1. Set the machine at the desired weight and adjust the seat to your height level.
  2. You should firmly press your feet to the floor and about shoulder-width apart.
  3. Grasp the handles with an overhand grip.
  4. Maintain a neutral wrist position.
  5. Push the bar outward until your arms are completely extended. Do not lock your elbows.
  6. Rest your head against the back support. Avoid moving your neck excessively.
  7. Pause here for a few seconds.
  8. Bend your elbows and return the bar to starting position.

Seated Chest Press Machine Tips

  1. Make sure to breathe throughout the exercise.
  2. Start with a lighter load when you start with a chest press machine.
  3. Avoid stressing your shoulder joint too much. Control the arm extension and do not extend your arm too much.
  4. Avoid explosive movements and take them slowly.
