2A FLOOR PRESS Lower the supports on a power cage to a few feet above the fl oor, and place a barbell on them. Lie on your back on the fl oor underneath the bar so that the bar lines up with your eyes. Reach up and grab the bar with a shoulderwidth grip (your arms should be fully extended), and lift it out of the rack so that it is above your chest . Lower the bar toward your sternum until your triceps touch the floor . Pause for a moment, and then press the bar back to the starting position. That's one rep.
