This month on Trainer Tip Tuesday we will be discussing how to properly use the chest press machine and make sure you are being safe and effective while doing so. The chest press machine is one of the most effective tools for building the strength and function of your chest and shoulder muscles, but you need to make sure that it is being used correctly in order to minimize potential risks. Today, we want to talk to you about a unique tip to help you squeeze out more reps when using this machine.

Oftentimes when people are using the chest press machine and they start to fatigue, they do one of two things. They either compromise their form to do more reps or they stop the set. While we do not recommend the former, there is something unique you can do to help you squeeze out a few more reps without having to sacrifice your form.

Not only will the tip we share this week help you to stay safe while using the chest press machine, it will also help you to improve the results you are getting from using this machine.

Check out all of the details in this week’s episode of Trainer Tip Tuesday, and be sure to tune back in next week as we discuss considerations when using the leg press machine.
