You may see this machine labeled as chest press, seated chest press, converging chest press, or machine chest press. Don’t worry, they’re all the same. The chest press is one of the best chest exercises for building upper body strength. The chest press targets your pectorals, deltoids, and triceps. The chest press is done from an upright position and thanks to multiple angles of the handles, you can choose a position that is safer for those who suffer from shoulder injuries. You can do it one arm at a time and adjust the height of each push to target different areas of your chest.

To use the chest press machine:

  1. Place your back against the backrest of the chest press machine.
  2. Grab the handles and place your feet flat on the floor.
  3. Press the handles forward until your arms are straight. Pause for one second and then bend your elbows and slowly return to the starting position.
