Iso Incline Chest Press on HammerStrength Machine

A variation of the iso wide chest press on the HammerStrength machine this is another very safe and easy-to-do weight training exercise for your chest and it is also excellent for bodybuilding, building mass and size. Thre features that are excellent for using this machine are:
  1. It allows for a much greater range of motion working the chest very effectively from a different angle.
  2. You can set whatever amount of weight that you require since it uses plates.
  3. You can work out as hard as you want without a spotter and very safely.

How to perform this exercise:
  • Adjust the seat to your desired level and add the appropriate weight plates that you wish to use.
  • In the seated position, grab the handles and push away from you as far as you can go without locking your elbows, in other words, the elbows should be slightly bent and the arms should not be completely straight.
  • Now bring back the handles to complete the movement with your elbows just slightly behind your back and shoulders.
  • Very important, remember to breathe because it is an integral aspect of weight training for both the body and the mind and with regards to how much you will be able to press. As you press outwards (as you push the handles away from you) breathe out and breathe in as you bring the handles back towards your chest.
  • Do about 12 repetitions or as many as you can do if you are using very heaving weights. So if you are doing the maximum in weight that you can press, do 4 to 10 reps. Do about 4 to 5 sets.

I like to do this exercise beginning with 1 light warm-up set.

It’s a good idea to do a couple of different quick stretches in between sets because this helps to maintain flexibility and prevent injuries and prevents muscle soreness the day after your workout.
