Close-Grip EZ-Bar Press

Position yourself for this exercise by sitting down at the end of a flat bench with a loaded EZ-Bar lying on the ground in front of the bench. Use a narrow grip in order to lift the bar up as you lie down on the bench (or alternatively, have a partner hand you the EZ-Bar when you are already lying down) and hold it directly over your torso with your elbows tucked in. Your arms will form a right angle with the floor at this point. In order to execute the movement, slowly lower the bar down to your lower chest while keeping your elbows tucked as close to your body as possible. Once the bar touches your chest, use your triceps to extend your elbows in order to push the bar back up into the starting position. Repeat for the prescribed number of repetitions.
