Floor Bench Press Close-Grip



For best performance and safety purposes use a power rack to execute the Floor Bench Press Close-Grip. Set the hooks or supports up in a power rack at a height that you can reach with almost fully extended hands while you lying on the floor. Lie back on the floor so that your lower chest to be on one level with the bar, bend your knees and position your feet firmly on the floor. Than grasp the bar with overhand grip (palms facing forward) with your hands about 20-25cm. apart. Lift the bar from the rack and hold it above your chest. This will be your starting position.


As you breathe in start slowly lower the weight, keeping your elbows close to your body, until you almost touch the lower chest (just above your sternum). When your triceps touch the floor carefully change the direction of the movement and bring the bar back to the starting position as you exhale.
