Instructions: How To

Targeting the lower chest muscles, this exercise is performed standing, using a loop band to mimic the decline press movement. It provides an effective way to isolate and strengthen the lower pectorals, enhancing the chest's overall definition. The band's resistance can be easily adjusted, making this variation suitable for various fitness levels while also engaging the core due to the standing position.

  1. Anchor two bands of the same resistance at roughly head height.
  2. Position yourself so your back is facing the anchor.
  3. Grab both bands, one in each hand. 
  4. Place one foot forward and one foot back and brace your core to increase stability in your stance throughout the exercise.
  5. Lean slightly forward with elbows pointed back and slightly outward and hands positioned at chest height.
  6. Exhale to extend your arms at a normal pace in a forward and downward motion towards the ground.
  7. Control the resistance back to the starting position at a normal pace and repeat the movement.
