Chest Expansion is an isolation exercise primarily targeting the chest and shoulders. The exercise usually involves holding a resistance band or cable and pulling it apart in front of the chest. This movement helps improve shoulder mobility and posture by working on the chest and upper back muscles. It’s a great exercise for adding variety to your chest workout and enhancing muscle activation.

  2. Straighten your arms and raise your hands upward until your feel a comfortable stretch in your chest.
  3. Hold this position for 15-30 seconds.
